How financial institutions are going about monetizing non-traditional big data sources to generate both investment and operational alpha.

Some of today’s most successful companies have demonstrated that data appreciates in value when translated into meaningful information. Retailers are paying billions of dollars to banks so they can send targeted discount offers directly to customers by analyzing their shopping habits from their credit card transactions. Quantitative hedge funds are successfully analyzing large volumes of news and social media to generate excess returns. Banks and investment research firms are paying premiums to service providers that mine unique insights from alternative data sources.
