"where alternative data companies come to meet 1-2-1 with Hedge Fund and Investment Firms that are looking to use alternative data in their investment process".
The discovery day focuses predominately on alternative data and artificial intelligence, these events are some of the largest within the alternative data space and are well attended by both data managers and asset managers alike. Pre-vetted alternative data providers participate in a one-to-one meeting format with asset managers, whereby both parties can speed date for alpha. Last year's event facilitated in excess of 1450 meetings with hedge funds that represented over $760 billion in assets under management. The agenda for Miami 2019 is set to cover some of the most cutting edge topics and provide panels to showcase alternative data providers.
