Technology’s Role in Capital Markets Intelligence

Shareholder activism is on the rise and its ever-growing reach greatly impacts the entire equity marketplace. And while there may be no real way to curb these investors’ open market activities, new technologies such as artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and big data are bridging the gap between panicked reactions and strategic proactivity. Buy-side analysts have benefited from these new technologies for some time, enhancing the speed and accuracy of their decision-making. How can corporates leverage the same technology to further elevate their day-to-day practices? More importantly, how can IROs leverage predictive analytics to identify activist accumulations in their stock? And can the buy-side benefit from the same insight?

Our expert panelists will talk to: 

  • The changing landscape and how new technologies such as artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and machine learning are impacting the capital markets
  • How IROs are leveraging predictive analytics to predict and recognize activist trading, drastically improve ROI on targeting efforts and better understand quantitative factors driving trading, in real-time
  • How the buy-side can profit from newfound datasets and quantitative research tools by generating excess alpha
