The panelists describe how using alternative data sets for investing and trading differs from previous approaches utilizing traditional data.
Innovations in big data analysis, both from within and beyond the financial community, are unleashing a wave of change that promises to transform every aspect of financial services. To compete, financial institutions need to move quickly and decisively to adopt new sources of data and possibly change their investment models -- or risk falling behind savvy “high tech” investors.

The panelists will describe how using alternative data sets for investing and trading differs from previous approaches utilizing traditional data.
