LONDON and NEW YORK, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Neudata Limited is pleased to announce that Stephen Morse has recently joined the firm as an advisor for the U.S. market. Morse was most recently Head of Global Financial Data Partnerships at Twitter. He will be based in New York City and will assist in bringing Neudata's alternative data intelligence platform to hedge fund managers and other institutional investors based in the U.S.
"We are thrilled to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Stephen bringing his expertise to Neudata as we expand our business of providing intelligence from new and alternative data sources to the sophisticated investor marketplace," said Rado Lipuš, founder and chief executive officer of Neudata which is headquartered in London, U.K. "It can be daunting for managers to find the precise data that will offer a true competitive edge and translate into alpha. Neudata understands this challenge and partners with investment managers to mine the nuggets of gold they truly want and need," he added.
"It is an honor for me to leverage my experience and knowledge toward building a strong U.S. presence for the type of unique and vital information that Neudata's intelligence platform provides," said Morse. "What has greatly impressed me about Neudata's business is that the firm is independent and data agnostic. It is strategically capturing new and novel datasets that are valuable to discretionary managers-those who are less familiar with alternative data-as well as sophisticated quants who already possess in-house data scouting teams."
Morse has deep experience with data, business information services and financial technology as well as working with hedge funds. His background includes working for firms that were acquired by, or are now a part of, Barra/MSCI, Dow Jones, KCG and Twitter. He previously ran the New York City office of Gnip, which was acquired by Twitter, and served as the Head of Global Financial Data Partnerships at Twitter where he was responsible for all business with hedge funds, asset managers, FinTech partners, platforms and other financial institutions. His expertise includes big and alternative data. Stephen holds the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA®) designation.
Neudata Limited is headquartered in London and helps sophisticated investment managers find new data sources that can provide unique, timely and granular records of often imperceptible economic activity. Neudata's alternative data expertise lies in uncovering unique datasets from non-conventional sources that are not available on established and commonly used data platforms. Neudata partners with investment managers to help tame big data, uncover overlooked information and focus on global equity, currency, commodity, fixed income and derivatives market intelligence.
