Alternative Data Council: Managing the Risks of Alternative Data

The 2nd webinar in the Alternative Data Council Series will lead with buy-side expert thought leaders giving timely insights into the Compliance and Legal risks associated with the extraction of value from alternative data sets used in trading and investment selection.  We will discuss the due diligence buy-side firms conduct to manage the risks, including application of the Council's recently released Due Diligence Questionnaire ("DDQ"). We then will hear from three insightful vendors about their practical experience with the due diligence process and learn how they are leveraging the standardized DDQ to speed up the process to get their data to flow and be useful to their customers.
