Alternative data specialist Eagle Alpha, has added AI-driven financial information technology provider Causality Link’s data to its library of alternative data supplied to asset managers, private equity professionals and corporate enterprises.
Causality Link will make available its data from Research Assistant, the firm’s AI-powered platform that processes and analyses more than 90 million texts globally in real time to identify explicit cause-and-effect statements. Reading texts in 24 languages, Research Assistant aggregates the knowledge of thousands of authors into a single deductive system, allowing portfolio managers, analysts and corporates to understand the KPIs, events, trends and causal links that reveal the market forces acting over time on a commodity, equity, portfolio, sector or industry. The feed also includes comprehensive data on ten subcategories related to the environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors for public companies worldwide.
