NEW YORK - September 20, 2017 -
, the leading provider of big data analytics to financial institutions, today launched a new service to create trading signals from big data including the web, news, social media, regulatory filings, and more.

Creating signals from big data sources is now simple and intuitive - and accessible for most financial professionals.”
RavenPack launched its self-service data and visualization platform in March of this year. The platform enables clients to query and visualize big data on thousands of entities including companies, commodities, currencies, organizations, people and products.
In early 2017, the company secured $5 million backing from Draper Esprit (AIM:GROW, ESM: GRW), a leading venture firm involved in the creation, funding and development of high-growth technology businesses.
