Brain joins Datarade to bring NLP-powered financial data to the global marketplace

Milan, Italy / Berlin, Germany. Oct 22, 2020 - AI-activated alternative data provider Brain has joined Datarade, the fastest-growing global e-commerce platform for commercial datasets. Datarade’s tens of thousands of data buyers from every industry can now effortlessly discover, compare, and get access to Brain’s data products.

Brain develops datasets for financial investors based on Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies. The company offers a range of different datasets, each with custom geographical and historical coverage. The Brain Sentiment Indicator (BSI) uses proprietary Natural Language Processing strategies to monitor public financial news for over 10,000 global stocks from more than 2,000 financial media sources. 

Another dataset offered by Brain is the Brain Market Sentiment (BMS), which generates sentiment scores to reflect the general mood of the market. BMS is also available with regional and sectoral focus, and its data is gathered by  automatically selecting and analyzing thousands of news articles every few minutes from the most popular financial media.

“We believe that the partnership with Datarade is a very good opportunity to address potential data buyers globally in a scalable way. We think that the partnership is a good fit since Datarade has built a robust platform for data integration and Brain builds investment models and datasets based on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning techniques.” -  Francesco Cricchio, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Brain.

Other alternative datasets based on Brain’s technology include the Brain Language Metrics (BLM), a Company Filings dataset which monitors several language metrics on 10-Ks and 10-Qs company reports for the largest 1000 US stocks. Brain Machine Learning Stock Ranking (BSR) is generated daily and is based on the predicted future returns of a dynamic universe of the largest 1,000 US stocks across five possible time windows: 2, 3, 5, 10 and 21 days. Both BLM and BSR are datasets that can be used to optimize long-only as well as long-short systematic strategies.

“We’re thrilled to have Brain onboard our global data commerce platform. Brain’s AI and NLP technologies facilitate powerful financial market data intelligence, and the company’s data product offering is meeting a growing demand for sentiment indicator feeds and APIs.” - Richard Hoffmann, Co-Founder and CCO at Datarade.

Brain’s alternative data offering enables systematic investors to integrate alternative data in their systematic strategies, as well as allowing discretionary investors access to alternative data via Brain’s  dedicated dashboard. Brain infrastructure also allows investors to create stock baskets by leveraging artificial intelligence and natural language processing techniques. Brain Smart Baskets can be used to create Thematic or Smart Indices,  Active and passive ETFs, and Mutual Funds baskets at low management costs.

“We are confident that our partnership with Datarade will create opportunities to reach a wide client base in a short time period, given the company’s global reach.” - Matteo Campellone, Founder and Head of Research at Brain.
