The Signal and the Noise: Changing the Approach to Investment Data

Today there is significant pressure on active management funds to generate returns that are better than the passive funds that they compete against. As a result, investment managers are constantly seeking new ways to generate investment edge. This has happened in an environment where the volume and velocity of investment data available continues to accelerate.

It’s no surprise that many investment managers are struggling to manage the firehose of information that is aimed at them every day. In this sea of data, it can be hard to identify the real opportunities. As well, being inundated with data can have a real impact on individual cognitive processing ability as well as decision-making capability. So, investment managers are asking, how do you separate the signal from the noise?
