Alternative data is valuable both for discretionary investment teams using data to inform or challenge in-depth fundamental analyses and for systematic investors undertaking quantitative trading strategies.
Sourcing, evaluating and using alternative data can be daunting; the exploding array of data available in the market, the complexity of transforming datasets into a usable format, and the technological challenges of ingesting data into traditional workflows and processes means that for many investment teams alternative data is not considered a practical option.
The Exabel platform is specifically designed to remove the obstacles commonly encountered with alternative data. Exabel is a single platform through which an investor can manage the entire alternative data lifecycle.
With the Exabel platform you can bring the alternative datasets you are working with today, and the ones you are evaluating for the future, together with ground-truth market data to create your data mosaic. In addition, with licensed access you can instantly utilize Exabel’s growing library of pre-integrated datasets provided by leading alternative data vendor partners.
Exabel comes pre-loaded with hiqh quality ‘ground-truth’ data from FactSet so you can automatically compare your alternative datasets to quarterly company fundamentals, daily updated consensus estimates and stock prices. Visible Alpha’s fundamental actuals and estimates data can also be automatically enabled for you in the platform.
If you have your own sources of data, signals, factors and models, these can easily be uploaded into the Exabel platform, integrating them into your data mosaic for use across the Exabel platform modules along with all your alternative third party data.
The Exabel platform is built to make it easy to work with data. In addition to pre-loaded data included on the platform and pre-integrated Exabel partner data, options exist to bring in additional sets of alternative data, ground truth data or in-house data. The fastest way to import a dataset is through the Excel importer, while the import API provides more flexibility and power. The API supports uploading and maintaining all aspects of the data: the time series, entities, and sub-relationships (such as brands and geographic operations).
Exabel’s extendable company data-structure means complex organisation structures and relationships can be modelled according to your specific data model design, and new datasets can be easily mapped to your model using a wide range of different identifiers.Exabel also provides a Python SDK to facilitate the implementation of data modelling and integration where required.
Click on the download button to export data from Exabel directly into an Excel file, or use the API to build data pipelines from the Exabel platform. Using the exporting capability, insights and output from Exabel can be used in downstream external workflows, processes and systems for further analysis, monitoring, visualisation, and trading.
Exabel is a state-of-the-art web application, which can be securely accessed from any computer with a web browser. You can be up and running in no time, without the need for any implementation resources.
