Data Minds - Chaos to Clarity: Leveraging Data in a Volatile Market | May 4, 2023 [Recording Available]

While the US was able to avoid a recession that many experts predicted for the first quarter of this year, investors could not steer clear of volatile swings in the stock market. Volatility brought about by inflation, rising interest rates and a regional banking rout don't appear to be going anywhere as we enter the second half of the year. During this Data Minds session, capital markets experts will weigh in on how best to source and utilize data in volatile markets to help you outperform your benchmark.

Topics discussed:
  • How to ensure a dataset that worked in a bull market will work in a bear market and vice versa
  • How to evaluate data quality when sourcing multiple datasets
  • Data use cases for maximizing return and managing risk
  • Most impactful corporate catalysts that cause volatility in this down market
  • Outlook for the second half of 2023
