In the Asia-Pacific markets, obtaining reliable corporate earnings data has long been a persistent challenge: lower frequency, less regulatory oversight, and greater fragmentation are making systematic approaches more difficult.

By integrating transcript insights from SCRIPTS Asia with news analytics from RavenPack, we create a playbook that allows investors to capture more alpha in multiple Asia -Pacific markets.

The research highlights that:

  • The integration of the datasets offers better coverage and larger cross-sections.

  • Earnings news and transcripts signals complement each other, with news enhancing short-term performance, while earnings call transcripts are supporting longer holding periods.

  • Combining these signals improves performance for both APAC Mid/Large- and Small-Cap companies across various holding periods.
