Neudata, headquartered in London with offices in New York City and Geneva, vets alternative data and conducts agnostic and independent research for investment managers. Neudata’s expertise lies in scouting and evaluating alternative data sources and assisting investment managers in selecting relevant data for backtests and research. Neudata is uniquely equipped to provide metadata and up-to-date objective research through its ever expanding network of data vendor relationships.
Unlike data brokers, Neudata does not sell data. It offers fund managers subscription-based access to its intelligence database. Neudata aligns interests with clients in finding sources that are the most promising for alpha generation. As such, Neudata’s clients are often among the first in the industry to be made aware of new data launches.
