Neil Chapman, CEO of Exabel commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with the market leader in the vibrant medical products alternative data sector. Widespread usage of alternative data is gradually disseminating across the investment landscape, in terms of investor profile and geographical focus but also with regards to industry sector. Where consumer products and retail have historically been the dominant sectors for the space, healthcare is increasingly becoming one of the areas with the highest demand for data.

“Today most investors want to use alternative data, but many find the cost and complexity of modelling data in-house a prohibitive burden. Exabel allows active managers to instantly benefit from alternative data, delivered on a purpose built technology platform, to supplement fundamental strategies.
“We are looking forward to working with MedMine to create and demonstrate actionable insights on its data. Dashboards, intelligent screening of MedMine’s published KPI prediction models and company drill down tools are among the many features our easy to use SaaS platform can deliver.”

Exabel is an analytics platform for any investment professional who wants to benefit from alternative data and modern data science tools in their investment process. It fulfils a growing need in financial markets: while use of data - including fundamental, market, proprietary and alternative data - is critical for asset managers, modelling such data in house has become an excessive use of time and resources for all but the very largest investment firms. Exabel's SaaS-delivered platform enables discretionary managers to complement their fundamental strategies with more data-driven techniques. It is the missing piece that allows investment teams to benefit from alternative data immediately. Exabel is currently growing rapidly having raised $22.7m and increased the team to 35 employees with more hiring underway.
