Both firms have combined their geopolitical risk tools and macro analysis to help institutional investors seeking alpha.

Quant Insight and predictive analytics platform provider Predata have teamed up and combined their macro analysis and geopolitical predictive risk frameworks.

The partnership will see Predata’s global geopolitical risk signals added to Quant Insight’s macro analyses to provide institutional investors and traders with information to improve investments and quantify trades on assets that incorporate political risk.

Both firms said investors, hedge fund portfolio managers and wealth managers will gain a more complete framework for trading today’s complex markets.

“Having the expertise to know which data is relevant, how to interpret that data and translate it into actionable investment ideas is crucial in today’s trading environment,” founder and CEO at Quant Insight, Mahmood Noorani commented.

Hazem Dawani, CEO of Predata, added that together both companies are looking to deliver a powerful source of analysis for investors seeking alpha strategies using data, machine learning and quantitative techniques.

“Collaborating with Quant Insight provides a perfect application for our predictive intelligence, risk and geopolitical signals to create an anticipatory view into popular risk topics and events that investors can then translate into actionable ideas,” he said.
