Harnessing the Data Science Revolution

August 2018
By Ben Wicks, Research Innovation, and Mark Ainsworth, Head of Data Insights, Investments, for Schroders

Successful data science in long-term investing helps anticipate the events that will affect companies and, ultimately, generate returns for investors.

  • The proliferation of information available for investment research is a profoundly disruptive force.
  • Data science offers a huge opportunity for active fund managers.
  • The injection of new, and potentially unique, methods of data analysis into existing investment processes should enhance long-term alpha generation.



Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.
