Neudata Names Jan Scibor-Kaminski as Managing Director

Alternative data specialist Neudata has named Jan Scibor-Kaminski as managing director. He was previously in the same role at Structured Retail Products, a data business for the structured products industry and part of the Euromoney Institutional Investor group, and has also worked at Goldman Sachs Asset Management and for Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.

Neudata doesn’t sell data and instead vets alternative data and conducts agnostic and independent research for investment managers. Its expertise lies in scouting and evaluating alternative data sources and helping investment managers in selecting relevant data for backtests and research.

Commenting on his appointment, Scibor-Kaminski says: “Alternative data has disruptive capability for managers and investors. It is fascinating to be able to play a small part in shaping this nascent, game-changing industry. I look forward to working closely with quantitative and fundamental fund managers and with the Neudata team to develop some ground-breaking alt data products and services.”

Rado Lipuš, CEO of Neudata, comments: “Scibor-Kaminski has spent the past 10 years working consultatively with derivatives desks of investment banks, asset managers, hedge funds, insurance companies and index providers to pioneer new products such as APIs and research products. We look forward to seeing him make a similar contribution to the alternative data space.”
