A review of key issues in performing predictive analytics on data in a financial context.
Predictive analytics is defined in terms of extracting information about future conditional distributions of data, and the importance of a leverageable information advantage is discussed including the measurement of value with respect to benchmarks and the importance of properly modelling causality.
Differences between financial market contexts and retail contexts in terms of the nature of the analysis and the nature of the data is examined. It includes non-normality, heteroskedasticity, the large degree of correlation found within the data and the existence of power-laws and genuine outliers.
Graham ends by reviewing the actual differences in what we can and should do with data and which are the consequences of commodity storage and commodity computation in the big data era.

High inflation has returned in developed markets after decades of lying low. In our latest paper, we show how to build an inflation-based asset allocation strategy using sentiment data and we illustrate that sentiment-based strategies outperform models that depend merely on past observed inflation values.
This year's RavenPack Research Symposium brought two intense days of knowledge sharing in London and New York, from 25 top experts in natural language processing, quantitative investing and machine learning. Together, we explored how firms can leverage new language models to generate alpha, better manage risk and respond to calls for more sustainable investment practices.
Human capital is at the heart of value creation. Our latest research demonstrates how unprecedented workforce insights, sourced from over 200 million job postings, can generate more alpha.
