What is alternative data?

Alternative data refers to data that exists beyond the sphere of traditional sources. Traders, investment management firms, and analysts typically leverage these alternative data sources to aid in company and investment evaluation. With growing awareness of its benefits, the use of alternative data is gaining traction fast, with new and innovative practices appearing each day.

Some brief examples of alternative data include public social media/sentiment, satellite and weather sensor data, transactional data from credit and debit cards (consumer data), email receipts, survey data, and much more. According to research, data collected from public web-sources is the number one alternative data source by origin. And this is precisely the type of alternative data that Coresignal offers.
