New York, NY, Sep. 26 2017 — S&P Global Market Intelligence announced the rollout of new alternative and unstructured datasets through its powerful data feed management system, XpressfeedTM. This includes the industry-leading corporate transcripts offering, supplemented by S&P Global Market Intelligence’s superior metadata tagging. In addition, the offering includes a robust suite of bank regulatory and branch level data, as well as global real estate property-level data through XpressfeedTM. Collectively, these innovative solutions are embedded with and linked to the firm’s market leading quantitative and qualitative products.
"Institutional Investors are actively seeking new sources of alternative data that can be structured for machines to help uncover relationships and new alpha generating ideas," says Warren Breakstone, Managing Director & General Manager of the Capital Markets Group of S&P Global Market Intelligence. "We are pleased to make our deep history of corporate earnings and event transcripts, bank branch and regulatory data, along with property-level REIT data available over our Xpressfeed delivery platform. These exclusive and alternative datasets include sophisticated metadata tagging that is cross referenced with the entire suite of S&P Global Market Intelligence content."
S&P Global Market Intelligence is now able to deliver, in a machine readable format, the market’s largest universe of corporate transcripts sourced from earnings calls, M&A calls and industry conferences for over 8,000 active companies globally. This latest enhancement provides sophisticated metadata tagging, with unique identifiers for people, companies, key developments and much more. In addition to over 10 years of historical data, users can receive real time updates of live transcribed calls, with the metadata tags, through the Events Driven Alerts machine readable feed.
