As the thematic space becomes more competitive and a bigger hunting ground for alpha,  there’s now a new imperative…

Not just to make the most of the data you’ve already collected, but to tap into data from previously inaccessible sources – in a way that efficiently captures, orders, and integrates with your in-house models.

That’s why we at CID have built Affinity – a platform that helps you deliver better thematic performance for each of your institutional, high net worth individual, and retail distribution clients.

With Affinity, you get…

  • More alpha from thematic investment strategies
  • More customised and transparent investment products
  • Faster product development
  • Shorter time-to-market
  • More efficient research processes
