NYAIR Virtual Event: Alternative Investment DataFest

RavenPack | May 28, 2020

Peter Hafez will be talking at NYAIR Virtual event representing RavenPack, discussing the limitations in a COVID-19 climate as an alternative data provider.

In our current COVID climate, we are facing severe limitations when it comes to sourcing traditional or fundamental data and government-sponsored economic data with significant lag time.

Instead, exploring high-frequency data and non-traditional sources of information could offer financial advisors, portfolio managers, and buy-side analysts alike, more reliable and relevant data.
