Please take a few minutes to answer the below set of questions to help us better understand hedge funds use of alternative data. Alternative data is defined as information used to obtain insight into the investment process that comes from using non-traditional data sources. Often categorised as "big data" meaning the data can be very large and complex and often cannot be handled by software traditionally used for storing or handling data, such as Microsoft Excel. The data can be compiled from sources such as financial transactions, mobile devices, satellites, public record and the internet.
