RavenPack Artificial Intelligence Index
New York – March 3rd, 2022:
A result of a collaboration between Credit Suisse and RavenPack that first began over 4 years
ago, the index leverages the power of big data analytics to make sector allocation decisions
in a tradable and systematic way.
The index aims to gain exposure to sectors of the U.S. economy with stronger sentiment as
determined by a news analytics algorithm developed by RavenPack, which uses Natural Language
Processing (NLP) models to objectively analyze thousands of company news published by
reputable sources across the globe in milliseconds.
The Index also implements a strategy that combines equities and fixed income, complemented by
a daily risk control mechanism.
“By bringing together complementary expertise, Credit Suisse and RavenPack have provided an
objective and quantitative approach to information gathering and we are proud of this
collaborative success Not only has the index recorded a 6.7% annualized performance* since
its launch in 2017, but it also has offered a window into the attractiveness of asset
allocations systematically selected by sophisticated data-driven analysis” says Mike Heraty,
Head of Institutional Solutions at Credit Suisse.
“This milestone achievement by Credit Suisse illustrates how artificial intelligence has
reshaped the landscape of equity investment: sentiment analysis now drives alpha discovery,
and RavenPack data delivers the quality and depth of signals that enables it.” says Armando
Gonzalez, President and CEO, RavenPack.
