Nominated for: Finding Alpha Through Alternative Data
Essentia Analytics is an "intelligent assistant" service that uses behavioral analytics to help professional investors make measurably better decisions. By combining an investor's actual trade data history with data on the context in which investments were made, Essentia's technology identifies a fund manager's strongest skills and where he/she is prone to behavioral biases. With this continuous feedback, as well as automated nudges that notify investors when old patterns are resurfacing, Essentia's Consultants (all ex-PMs) help professional investors refine their investment decision making processes, enabling them to quantify the additional alpha generated by their improving skills.
