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.

Inflation Data Hackathon | October 12th, 2021

We Are Excited To Present Our Fourth Data Hackathon At Our October Conference – Live in NY – October 12, 2021! We are pleased to announce our signature event will be coming back for a fourth iteration live in NY on October 12th, 2021. Judges are back, and alpha testers are lining up as the team captains to head into EA’s Data Hackathon 4, which will be focused on inflation. The competition is an event formatted to allow data vendors and alpha testers to present a blended data solution to buyer challenges. This challenge is presented as a theme that teams are tasked to evaluate and present an analysis based on their blended data sets.

Eagle Alpha Spotlight – Social Data

Eagle Alpha Spotlight – Social Data

To evaluate all the components of the S-Pillar, the paper will review social data vendors in 3 parts: Part I: Social Capital, Part 2: Human Capital and Part 3: AI & NLP for Social Analysis. There is no one vendor that covers all categories of social data in detail. This report aims to help readers identify and understand which vendors can cover each of the social categories, what regions they cover, the granularity of the datasets and other key metrics of these data vendors’ datasets. With the introduction of new sustainable finance disclosure regulations and taxonomies from the UN and across the EU, North America, and Asia, it is more important now than ever to understand ESG data and where investors can source reliable ESG data.

Mandatory and non-mandatory ESG reporting obligations vary massively by region. Researchers have highlighted 1750 sustainability reporting provisions across 60 countries worldwide. And these reporting regulations are in constant flux. Just this year both the EU and the SEC in the US have signalled their intention to tighten non-financial disclosure requirements, though we are some way off a single harmonized global system. The shifting and inconsistent requirements have increased the importance of alternative datasets from independent third parties when assessing the ESG credentials of an investment.

Blending Alternative Data For ESG Investing

Blending Alternative Data For ESG Investing

This paper is the result of a collaboration between Eagle Alpha, OttoQuant, and seven data providers brought together for Eagle Alpha’s Data Hackathon in May 2021. Eagle Alpha’s Data Hackathon was created to demonstrate how multiple datasets can be blended by investors, as opposed to looking at a dataset in a vacuum.
