Eagle Alpha White Paper

Published by tabbforum
Eagle Alpha’s first whitepaper, Discovering the web’s hidden alpha: How the buyside can make full use of online information, shows that when it comes to formulating successful investment strategies, leveraging information from the web is as essential a source of information as traditional sources.

The financial data and information provider, has written the paper in response to hesitation on the part of Wall Street and the City to adopt the web as a trusted source of information to guide investment strategies. This, coupled with concerns around compliance and managing large data sets, means firms have traditionally had limited access to social media and, thus, have been reluctant to implement new ways of working.

It explores in detail how different people at the buyside can take advantage of this data, examining how traders, research analysts and portfolio managers can use the information to access CEO commentary, employee sentiment and real-time insight. The paper also provides real-life examples of how asset managers are currently incorporating online information into their investment decisions.

In addition to this, the majority o Wall Street firms prevent their employees rom accessing highly  valuable areas o the web like orums and social media or compliance reasons; these sites are not read-only and there is a data storage requirement o 5 years but witter and other social media do not offer this unctionality.Tat said, the web is ast becoming an essential component o the investment process or a wide range o investors on the buyside.

Firms such as Bridgewater, Artemis and Mediolanum Asset Management have publicly disclosed that they incorporate online inormation into their investment strategy. Tese firms are blazing the trail but it is only a matter o time beore the rest o the buyside are aced with a decision: either develop a strategy that incorporates web inormation or get lef behind. Tis paper discusses how web inormation is being leveraged by the buyside today, and how inormation will be leveraged by innovators in the uture.
