State Street Corp has launched Insights, a new research platform that offers clients proprietary research, exclusive data-driven indicators and the latest market commentary from the firm’s team of global macro strategists.
The platform, which will eventually replace the firm’s current IR3 web portal, also enables clients to retrieve real-time perspectives on the latest market trends include automatic alerts, indicator tracking algorithms and customisable saved views for charts and other content.
In addition, clients will be able to investigate past market performance after specific data signals using a Signal Studio tool, a new feature available only to clients.
“Whether it’s high-frequency inflation data, proprietary capital flow indicators, or sentiment shifts derived from millions of social media posts, access to data-driven asset intelligence gives our clients an edge,” said Nadine Chakar, executive vice president and head of State Street Global Markets.
She added, “We have a proven track record of providing valuable research, and throughout the global pandemic, our clients have relied on our partnership to weather market volatility at an unprecedented speed. We can now offer these solutions in a more dynamic and engaging platform via Insights.”
Will Kinlaw, head of State Street’s hub for partnerships with alternative data start-ups and renowned academics, State Street Associates, said, “We built these tools based on their feedback. The goal is to put all of this information at their fingertips and organize it around the markets that are top-of-mind on any given day.”
This is the second data platform to be launched by State Street. Late last year, it introduced Alpha, an end-to-end data management and warehouse solution for institutional investment and wealth managers. The platform enables clients to seamlessly assemble and access investment data from internal and third-party services across their investment processes.
