What we do
We apply proprietary AI algorithms as well as human intelligence to extract, categorize and summarize information from huge volumes of unstructured Alternative Data. To drive better-informed investment decisions and to enhance Institutional Investors, Private Investors and Corporate actions.
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 Quantamental 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.

In his more than 20 years work pedigree Massimo has held numerous managerial positions in leading international software and service companies with a strong focus on the financial market. From 2008 to 2021 he successfully led the growth of GoldenSource first in Italy and then in EMEA. Before that, he held the position of Responsible for Finance Clients in Microstrategy Italy. Outside work he splits his time between the family and his great passion for mountain biking where he has taken part to several competitions with good results.
Working as IT consultant, has gained various experiences in the digital field and in the design of SaaS architectures. He obtained the PMP certification from Project Management Institute and since 2017 he has been bringing his experience to FinScience where on the cloud he contributes to shaping the Platform by coordinating the amazing sotware development team. Outside FinScience, he likes taking part in table soccer tournaments, taking care of the home garden and tidying up the closets constantly “revisited” by his beloved wife.
She arrived at FinScience in 2018 after graduating in engineering and earning a PhD in Applied Statistics at the Politecnico di Milano. As a data scientist she designs algorithms and analyses (mostly textual) data. Outside the office she likes to immerse herself in the twenties through swing dance!
He arrived at FinScience in 2017 after various experiences as a quantitative analyst (Deloitte, Arca Sgr, ARPM) and a PhD in mathematical finance at Università di Milano Bicocca. He designs and implements algorithms and models for analysing financial markets. He likes competition, both as a participant and as a spectator, but only as long as the game is fair.
After 10 years as a software developer and then as data engineer, now my main focus is on the FinScience architecture. Sunday runner, couch potato, I spend my spare time between reading and retrogaming.

Outside FinScience, he is a travel/party organiser but his core competencies are Barbecue’s organisations.
