Pim Dale, CEO at ALA, says: “For traders, our predictive models identify and catch signs of bubbles, market trends, overconfidence in M&A deals, and other useful trading indicators, in any language, and across jurisdictions. We believe sentiment, behavioural and emotional analysis will evolve at an accelerated pace over the coming years and it is key for my team to deliver best-in-class predictive analytics for our customers.”
“We are gaining such an experienced and respected financial mathematics and modelling specialist,” says Dale. “Tilman leads our team of academics and will be an invaluable asset as we continue to develop our global big data analytics platform and extend its unique capabilities within financial markets analytics.”
