Frequently asked questions

What is alternative data?

Alternative data is fetched from non-traditional sources such as financial transactions, estate figures, geo-location data, rentals and leases, surveys, satellite data, and much more. Traditional data sources like financial statements, sales figures, etc., are not always capable of providing an accurate and complete picture of the investing scene. This is the reason why many progressive companies turn to alternative data sources to complement their analysis and decision-making.

How do you gather alternative data?

The best way to collect alternative data is by web scraping with the help of automated tools and proxy servers. Some other options are raw data acquisition and alternative data providers.

How is alternative data used?

Hedge fund managers and investors are using alternative data to evaluate market tendencies and identify investment opportunities. Other alternative data use cases include research of consumer behavior for analytics, as well as policy making for governments.

What is an example of alternative data?

Alternative data refers to data from non-traditional sources and can encompass any source that is not typically used for analysis. When it comes to financial markets, some alternative data examples include social media sentiment, credit card transaction data, online reviews, or even weather data and satellite imagery. In comparison, traditional financial data analysis often uses sources like financial statements, SEC filings, and press releases.

Is alternative data unstructured?
