Tracking Supply Chain Disruptions with Alternative Data

Tracking Supply Chain Disruptions with Alternative Data

Over the past two years, alternative data sources have proven to offer hugely effective and timely insights for companies wanting to understand the impact of Covid-19. Coming into the winter holiday season, and following on from Black Friday and Thanksgiving, the cracks in the global supply chain have proven to have a devastating impact on commercial sectors, but also disrupting other sectors via a knock-on-effect. Due to this, many industries are now turning to alternative data to further understand this impact.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a variety of interesting trends, some of which have created both opportunities and challenges for many organizations globally. Alternative data sources have proven to offer hugely impactful and timely insights for companies wanting to understand the impact of Covid-19 on verticals such as eCommerce (consumer transaction data, social media, etc.), travel, and hospitality (mobility data, geolocation, etc.), among many others. However, two years on, and as we enter the holiday season, organizations are relying on alternative data sources to understand how the global supply chain will be affected this year. This paper outlines the importance of alternative data sources in the understanding of global supply chains, considering some of the more unique and unstructured datasets that are available to global teams.

Eagle Alpha Spotlight – Data Regulations in China

Eagle Alpha Spotlight – Data Regulations in China

As of 2021, China’s population exceeds 1.4 billion people according to United Nations data, which excludes Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan. This number makes up approximately one-fifth of the global population, and with the rapid rise in technology in recent years, it can be concluded that they are also one of the largest producers of data. Historically, there were 4 factors of production known to create economic wealth – land, capital, labour and entrepreneurship, but with an increasing global reliance on technology, data (knowledge) is now considered by many to be the fifth factor. Unlike the initial four factors of production, the pricing models for data are opaque with no ownership models truly in place, and ill definitions surrounding sensitivity and the categorization of data. According to many global experts and firms watching the developments with avid interest, China’s crackdown on Big Tech is seen to safeguard one of the world’s most valuable economic resources and is considered to be the new oil. This paper will provide insight into China’s changing data landscape regarding regulations, always linking back to the connection between alternative data availability, collection, and distribution. The content included in this paper has been collected through both publicly available sources as well as through interviews with data experts and proprietary client-only content available through Eagle Alpha’s Data Strategy solution.

Profiting From Data with Femi Opeodu, Head of Data Product and Distribution at CLS Group

This episode features an interview with Femi Opeodu, Head of Data Product and Distribution at CLS Group. Femi began his data journey while at Bloomberg, focusing on growing the commodity side of the business across the globe. His time at Bloomberg helped him realize that if the global economy can be likened to the human body, then foreign exchange is the blood in circulation. Having earned his stripes experiencing how effective alternative data can be for commodities, Femi now works with CLS, a data vendor providing unique and relevant alternative data on the FX market since 2002. On this episode, Femi talks about historic events, such as the fall of Herstatt Bank, that acted as a backdrop for the formation of CLS, the focus on capturing flow, volume, and pricing data for the buyer market, and the importance of focusing on executed trades rather than quotes in FX trading data. He also discusses trends and flows in the FX market and what’s coming down the line for CLS including the expansion of available currencies and increasing frequency of data for clients. Please enjoy this dialogue between Femi and your host, Niall Hurley.
