Over the last five years we’ve witnessed an explosion of data, but how should asset managers best approach building a Big Data strategy? What are the sorts of questions they should be asking themselves in terms of selecting data vendors, putting the right systems and processes in place, and establishing a culture where preparing to fail is accepted, and a long-term commitment to Big Data is upheld?
Just as crude oil needs to be carefully refined to remove impurities, so too asset managers need to carefully engineer the way they optimise alternative data, in order to generate incremental insights to support their investment programmes.
Such considerations are explored in this, the fourth of five webinars produced by Hedgeweek, in association with SEI.
