Hedge Funds’ Use of Alternative, Unstructured Data to Generate Returns

How to value data:

  • Scarcity (how many other actors in the market have it)
  • Granularity (time, aggregation)
  • Structure (vs. unstructured–“cost”)
  • Coverage (demographics, geos, industry coverage)

Really great talk from an Ex-SAC Capital Director.As the saying goes, “from the horses mouth”
