How ‘big data’ can improve investment decisions – three examples
Ben Wicks and Alex Tedder explain how they’re making sense of a new avalanche of information.
Ben Wicks is Head of Research Innovation at Schroders, working within the Data Insights specialist unit. Alex Tedder is Head of Global Equities at Schroders.
At the annual Cazenove Capital Private Client Conference in London – A New World Disorder? – on 3 May 2017, they offered tangible examples of how data can hand investors an edge.
They spoke alongside other investment professionals and guest speakers, including BBC presenter Emily Maitlis and former minister Lord Willetts.
In a new video series published over the next week, the speakers highlight some of the most important issues raised at the conference.
