The Art of Alpha

The proliferation and richness of data available to the financial services sector is already proving a profoundly disruptive force. For the asset management industry, harnessing its potential is a real and urgent challenge. Most firms are well aware that maximizing their data is the critical enabler in the hunt for alpha.

In partnership with WBR Insights, Northern Trust surveyed 300 CEO’s, CIO’s, and Chief Data Information Officers from global asset management firms to find out what their strategies are for maximizing their data, how they incorporate that data into their investment process and their plans to leverage data science tools to optimize their investment performance.

Because achieving alpha is not only an art, it is now a science too.
