Gene Ekster Speaks on Alternative Data
Gene Ekster gave a great talk about the uses and applications of Alternative Data in the financial industry.
Non-traditional datasets also known as Alternative Data, used by institutional investors to enhance the investment process, have become the key topic of Wall Street. However, formidable commonplace technical challenges hold back many funds from using these datasets. These include identifier mapping, stable panel creation, dataset evaluation and sensitive information extraction. In his talk he discussed the details of these challenges and presented several solutions to the audience. He also covered the tools, techniques and skill sets needed to solve the current and future challenges of the alternative data ecosystem. Closing his talk, he addressed some of the compliance-related technologies needed to minimize regulatory risk and enable mass adoption.
