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…
Maximise investment performance, research efficiency, and thematic insight
Affinity combines the best of Natural Language Processing, AI and graph technology to continuously put the most comprehensive and relevant data sets at your fingertips, and all in one place.
It unifies qualitative and quantitative, unstructured and structured data for the deepest and clearest possible view of market trends and events.
You can quantify any company’s exposure to themes that are of interest to your investors: Affinity makes it easy for Asset & Wealth Managers to enrich their fundamental and quantitative data with unstructured data insights.
Affinity’s insights hub reveals the relationships between entities of interest – including companies, sectors, individuals, and market themes and events.
This continuous stream of automated thematic insights gives portfolio managers a complete market view and supports higher-performing thematic investment funds more efficiently, at scale.
