Unlocking Insights: Exploring Alternative Data for Fixed Income Investors

18 April 2024 | 4pm BST | 11am ET

Over the last year, the credit market has exploded. Investors have poured in, as high-interest rates around the world have helped drive up the value of credit and fixed-income market instruments.

Credit investors have historically relied on traditional data sources, such as issuing prospectuses, to gain market insights. It is, however, difficult to extract information from these conventional data sources automatically. The fixed-income market is, therefore, quite opaque, leaving some investors at the mercy of what companies report.

The most cutting-edge investors use alternative data sources to add another perspective when conducting company analysis.

In this beginner-level session you will find out how credit investors can use alternative data to enhance their investment strategies, even in niche sectors. We’ll cover practical tips on finding and using alternative data effectively in credit research.

  • Using alternative data to track investments
  • Advantages of using alternative data 
  • Types of datasets that can help track credit investments
  • Datasets you should start with
