Title

The Power of AI, Machine Learning and Alternative Data in Financial Services

Event Description

In a recent study by Greenwich Associates, nearly half of traditional investment managers said they were now using alternative data. And in a survey from Refinitiv, 78% of respondents said machine learning (ML) is a core component of their business strategy.

In this lively lunch session, Tim Baker, CFA, will show attendees how they can give their investment strategy a competitive advantage by incorporating alternative sources of data and AI/ML.

You'll learn:

  • The AI/ML trends transforming financial services 
  • How to overcome barriers to machine learning (data quality, organizational constraints, etc.)
  • Where to find sources of alt data and how to include them into your investment strategy.
