Consumption of external data among modern investors and corporations is growing exponentially.

According to research, 53% of hedge funds are now using alternative data and to make use of this data over the past five years, there has been an increase of over 450% in specialised full-time employees.

With unprecedented volumes of data being produced each day and becoming available on the various marketplaces and data catalogues, it currently takes buyers up to 12 months to manually identify, source, structure, and back test this data against their proprietary models and strategies to find potential additive value.

Although investment firms and other corporates are convinced of the value that can be gained by incorporating alternative data sources, it is still very difficult for them to justify the costs associated with building the necessary teams and infrastructure to be able to leverage this type of data. Now most companies are weighing up the option of build vs buy to overcome these challenges.

See how Alqami is becoming the market leader in alternative data by solving demand focused challenges.

We save buyers hours of time and increase return on investment, by ensuring our data vendors have succeeded industry standard compliance checks and are equipped operationally to distribute their data frequently and on-time.
