Featured Research 

The explosion in alternative data has been both a blessing and a curse to investment managers. Many more data sources have become available, thus expanding the opportunities for uncovering new sources of alpha. At the same time, the risk of wasting time on data issues or other dead ends has also increased. George Bonne from MSCI will join us to lead a discussion on the “alternative dataset” landscape and how investors are incorporating these tools, highlighting areas where research has indentified factors that add marginal explanatory power beyond traditional factors.
