Neudata has appointed Stephen Morse as an adviser for the US market.
Morse (pictured) will assist in bringing Neudata’s alternative data intelligence platform to hedge fund managers and other institutional investors based in the US.
Morse, who will be based in New York City, was most recently head of global financial data partnerships at Twitter.
“We are thrilled to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Stephen bringing his expertise to Neudata as we expand our business of providing intelligence from new and alternative data sources to the sophisticated investor marketplace,” says Rado Lipuš, founder and chief executive officer of Neudata which is headquartered in London. “It can be daunting for managers to find the precise data that will offer a true competitive edge and translate into alpha. Neudata understands this challenge and partners with investment managers to mine the nuggets of gold they truly want and need.”
“It is an honour for me to leverage my experience and knowledge toward building a strong US presence for the type of unique and vital information that Neudata’s intelligence platform provides,” says Morse. “What has greatly impressed me about Neudata’s business is that the firm is independent and data agnostic. It is strategically capturing new and novel datasets that are valuable to discretionary managers – those who are less familiar with alternative data – as well as sophisticated quants who already possess in-house data scouting teams.”
Morse has deep experience with data, business information services and financial technology as well as working with hedge funds. His background includes working for firms that were acquired by, or are now a part of, Barra/MSCI, Dow Jones, KCG and Twitter.
He previously ran the New York City office of Gnip, which was acquired by Twitter, and served as the head of global financial data partnerships at Twitter where he was responsible for all business with hedge funds, asset managers, FinTech partners, platforms and other financial institutions. His expertise includes big and alternative data.
