Hamburg-based investment house Alpha Centauri, which specialises in risk premia and equity multi-factor investing strategies, is to use S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Point-in-Time fundamental data and consensus estimates to support their quantitative research, modelling efforts and portfolio risk management.

S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Point-in-Time datasets aim to provide a more accurate representation of historical as-of-date market information, eliminating look-ahead bias, and enabling investors to look through data changes due to restatements.  The Point-in-Time data will be delivered through S&P Global Market Intelligence’s flagship enterprise data management platform, Xpressfeed.
 
Alpha Centauri will use this data across the broad spectrum of their specialist funds, including their equity alternative risk premia and factor strategies, their long only multifactor offerings, and their factor-based risk management solutions for portfolios and funds.
 
Commenting on the deal, Ulf Füllgraf (Managing Director) and Benjamin Badel (Portfolio Manager) at Alpha Centauri, says: “Factor investing and risk analytics are core parts of our business, and S&P Global Market Intelligence, as the provider with the longest history and best quality of crucial point-in-time data we need, was an obvious choice of partner to support our investment business as well as risk identification & analysis innovation efforts.”
 
Silvina Aldeco Martinez, Managing Director, EMEA Product Management at S&P Global Market Intelligence, says: “We see the length, breadth and quality of our ‘Point-in-Time’ data as a vital tool for investment managers in EMEA aiming to optimize their investment strategies to capture alpha. We are excited to have been chosen by Alpha Centauri as their preferred vendor on these mission critical datasets.
