Quant Insight, a London-based macro analytics firm, and Predata, the New York-based predictive analytics platform, today announced a new strategic partnership whereby Predata will add its global geopolitical risk signals to Quant Insight’s quantitative macro analyses framework and processes to give institutional investors and traders anticipatory insight to help optimise investments and quantify trades on assets that incorporate political risk.
Together, Quant Insight and Predata will give investors, hedge fund portfolio managers and wealth managers a more complete framework for trading today’s complex financial markets. The joint solution will help investors to better grasp the political, financial and economic factors driving asset prices via two complementary and now integrated analytic platforms.
“Having the expertise to know which data is relevant, how to interpret that data and translate it into actionable investment ideas is crucial in today’s trading environment. We are delighted to partner with Predata to ensure all financial market participants have access to our combined analytics capabilities and evaluate both economic and geopolitical factors when choosing a trade expression that best suits their macro view,” says Mahmood Noorani, Founder and CEO at Quant Insight.
“Collaborating with Quant Insight provides a perfect application for our predictive intelligence, risk and geopolitical signals to create an anticipatory view into popular risk topics and events that investors can then translate into actionable ideas. Together, we’re delivering a powerful source of analysis to financial professionals looking for alpha strategies using alternative data, machine learning and innovative quantitative techniques,” says Hazem Dawani (pictured), CEO of Predata.
