Buy-side investment managers, sell-side brokers and corporate leaders are increasingly looking to data from satellites, drones, mobile phones, credit card transactions and social sentiment to help fine-tune their investment decisions. Bloomberg’s alternative data feeds deliver high-quality, granular information that can provide an edge.
