Finally, Hindsight Is 2020

We expect further transparency, management, and measurement of ESG issues in the years to come, regardless of the asset class and liquidity profile. The sheer amount of alternative data available to investors has grown at an exponential rate in recent years and it does not seem be slowing down any time soon. In fact, alternative data is expected to grow at an 40.7% annualized rate through 2027!

Perhaps the future brings about new problems, rather than investors struggling to find data, investors will struggle with analyzing the vast amount that is already available, and they must take an ethics-based approach to harnessing its power. To quote Rich Roche, CAIA of Little Harbor Advisors, investors will increasingly have to face the hard reality of the Unattainable Triangle regarding alternative data: you can either have it fast, cheap, or good, but you can’t have it all!
