TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nasdaq’s Quandl, a leading provider of alternative data, today announced the fourth annual Quandl Data Conference (QDC 2020) at Convene’s 46th St. location in New York City on Thursday, January 23, 2020. Featured speakers include Kirk McKeown, head of proprietary research at Point72; Matthew Rothman, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs; Chris Meredith, Chief Investment Officer at O’Shaughnessy Asset Management; and a keynote from Brian Koppelman, executive producer of Showtime’s “Billions” and co-writer of “Ocean’s Thirteen.”

Across seven hours of programming and three hours of networking, the one-day event will see alt data and data science pioneers converge on the key pain point facing the industry today: how to identify profit-generating information among the glut of data that now exists.

Sessions at QDC 2020 will explore:

  • Current tools, technology and processes in use to speed and scale data assessment
  • The new wave of investment strategies that make better use of non-market data
  • The relationship between data-driven investing and the broader trends driving capital markets

“The biggest opportunity for investors this decade is to find signals buried in the enormous amount of data generated by the digital economy,” said Tammer Kamel, CEO of Quandl. “Four years ago, we launched the Quandl Data Conference to educate the industry on the viability of alternative data, and it has become the single most important event in the space. This year we’re excited to reconvene around the key challenge on everyone’s mind: how to manage the nearly inedible feast of data.”

Additional presenters and the full agenda will be announced in the weeks leading up to the conference.

Registration details and early bird ticket pricing (available through November 27, 2019) can be found here.
