Challenge:

Bring data together to predict market trends

Public data is a powerful resource in gaining insight on topics of critical interest to investors, including: 

  • Investment returns
  • Company quarterly results, revenues and earnings
  • Analyst estimates and revisions
  • Market microstructure, including trading volumes and volatility

Asset managers rely on a broad range of analytics over “Core” data sets in combination with less traditional information sources to make investment decisions. 

Alternative data informs investment strategy. Pre-evaluating complex, multi-dimensional data, and providing an easy way to explore it, gives asset managers looking to out-perform an edge in identifying the most valuable information. 

Equeum is a platform for distilling insight.

We want you to identify factors that contribute to investment out-performance.

Diversity

Financial data is a mosaic, and we’re looking for contributions that combine the different pieces of information to produce unique views on the landscape around a company.

Modularity

We want to seed the system with apps that are exceptional at a particular task, so that the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts. Selected projects will be able to leverage contributions by others in the development process, so position proposals to be narrow and deep.

Substance

We provide a rich repository of resources to work with, so we’re looking for contributions that leverage this repository with an informed perspective.
