What we do
We gather digital contents from social and e-commerce platforms, blogs, maps, etc. (in English and in Italian).
We then analyze, filter, interpret and weigh them. We turn them into figures and time series with our proprietary Machine Learning algorithms (e.g. topic modeling, entity recognition, influencer clustering-and-evaluation algorithms).
Hence, the Alternative Data present in our data lake – treated as mentioned above – becomes the raw material for supplying our clients with two types of solutions:
- Information solutions, consisting of indexes and monitoring systems, “alternative” signals and scorings which may refer to individual enterprises, top management, products and/or even to specific topics (e.g. Brexit, spread, ESG)
- Operational solutions, comprising investment models, strategies and portfolios that result from the combination of both Alternative Data and traditional data (e.g. Stock Exchange data, financial reports and quarterly balance sheet, open data).
Our technological infrastructure is thoroughly cloud-based; this makes it all extremely flexible and readily scalable.
