Eagle Alpha Spotlight – Web Crawling for Data-Driven Decision-Makers

Eagle Alpha Spotlight – Web Crawling for Data-Driven Decision-Makers

Undoubtedly, alternative data has become more accessible to data buyers of all shapes and sizes, with the most accessible avenue into alternative data being web crawling, or web scraping as it’s also known. Web crawling has been utilized by hedge funds and corporates for several years now and is considered by many to be the “gateway” into the alternative data ecosystem. The reason being that web crawling is a ‘low-risk, high return’ data source. Web crawling offers perfect conditions to achieve buy-in and resourcing and can be implemented with a small team of analysts and engineers.

This Spotlight report explores web crawling by outlining the most pertinent case studies from our vast library of content accessible through the Data Strategy platform, as well as exploring leading web crawled data providers available to view and connect with through our Discovery and Prioritisation solution. We have included case studies for each category to provide some real-world examples of how web crawling can improve the decision-making process for both financial services firms as well as corporates and provide insights that are not readily available through the analysis of traditional forms of data. 

Eagle Alpha Spotlight – NLP & AI for ESG Analysis

Eagle Alpha Spotlight – NLP & AI for ESG Analysis

In the ESG landscape, some of the pain points for asset managers, are a lack of comparable, high-quality, high-frequency raw data, a lack of standardized definitions of sustainable activities, conflicting ESG taxonomies, and divergence in scoring methodologies across traditional ESG data vendors. This conundrum remains despite a proliferation of ESG data vendors since current ESG scoring methodologies are limited
by voluntary and sparse non-financial input data and must be supplemented by alternative datasets such as events data, real-time data, satellite imagery data, traditional and social media data, all of which capture material issues and events not reflected in a company’s financial and regulatory filings. Extracting, evaluating, and standardizing these alternative datasets require significant manual effort, creating strong incentives for the use of machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and natural language processing (NLP) techniques.
