Liquidnet, the technology-driven global institutional investment network, today announced the official launch of its third business, Investment Analytics (IA). The new business combines the latest AI technologies, including machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP), to uncover hidden insights within data and alerts users to key factors influencing their investments.
Building on Liquidnet’s core franchise, IA Trader has been created to help equity traders enhance their decision-making process at the point of trade by offering personalized pre- and intra-trade advanced analytics and alerts linked to their order pads and watchlists which require limited screen space. It derives compact stamp summaries and alerts combining market data, such as price, volume, and short interest, with data from related markets like credit default swaps (CDS) and implied volatility, with other market moving factors including fundamentals, news, and events.
“With the launch of the IA business and its product suite, we aim to democratize access to data science, AI and advanced analytics, in order to ensure that crucial information is available to investment firms of all sizes,” said Vicky Sanders, global head of Investment Analytics, in a statement.
