FinScience will make available data on more than 50 trends – such as vaccines, gender equality, veganism, climate change, hydrogen, telemedicine, space exploration – and their correlated actions, selected thanks to its AI-based technology, to better inform investment decisions to deliver market-beating returns. Thematic investing has attracted increased interest among active institutional and private investors, as it identifies macroeconomic themes that are likely to thrive.

“Alternative data will become a primary driver of active investment performance over the next decade,” said Fabrizio Milano d’Aragona, CEO of FinScience and Datrix Group. “We are thrilled that Bloomberg’s Alternative Data Catalog is making our data available to its customers.”

Under the terms of the agreement, FinScience will provide daily alternative metrics that will allow investors to get real-world insight into the most compelling and debated topics, and understand the effects that news on those topics can have on many companies.

Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point is Bloomberg’s web-based data marketplace that enables data license customers to immediately discover, access and use high-quality, market-leading content from Bloomberg and third-party providers.

Bloomberg continues to expand its alternative data offering, providing Bloomberg customers with access to a catalog of curated alternative data uniquely positioned to provide insight into the current market environment.
