RavenPack’s Chief Data Scientist gave a keynote address and participated in a panel about structured versus unstructured data in this RavenPack-sponsored event.
The Battle of the Quants event is where solution providers, investors, and hedge funds come to find up-to-date information in the quant space, hear where allocations are generating the most alpha, and find out what’s new in quant fund strategies.
Peter Hafez, our Chief Data Scientist, gave a keynote address, titled "Exploiting Alternative Data in the Investment Process - Bringing semantic intelligence to financial markets". The emergence of big data in finance has shifted the alpha focus away from being faster to being smarter and more efficient than the competition. Access to alternative data sources is considered a key input to such a process. During his talk, Peter Hafez will provide an overview of the changing investment landscape and provide the “winning formula” for successful quant investing. He’ll discuss issues related to unstructured content, crowd-sources alpha, and proprietary vs. public content.
He also participated in a panel titled “Battle: Structured Data vs. Unstructured Data”.
