Outside Insight signals uncover leading indicators in alternative data to better inform investment decisions.
Outside Insight mines alternative data to identify impactful events about companies, brands, and products. We analyze and add context to events over time, using ML and filtering techniques to produce signals – or leading indicators about company health.
Outside Insight signals are derived from company events, and can range from key hires and headcount expansion, to product recalls, new competitors, Fortune 500 partnerships and more. In addition to news sites, our source base includes blogs and review boards, as well as social media sites like YouTube and Tumblr, and much more.
Our knowledge graph links and contextualizes signals generated by individual companies. This allows us to suggest interesting investment opportunities, identify new potential threats, and predict future performance of companies in the market.
OI aggregates unstructured external data from Meltwater’s data lake, linking over 1T documents in our knowledge graph to detect and understand key entities.
Our proprietary NLP extracts attributes and attaches valuable metadata to web-scraped sources. Enrichments increase the value of alternative data by adding context and perspective.
Signals are leading indicators that can be used to predict a company's future performance. We surface signals in real time and enable investors to analyze their meaning within a historical context.
