The alternative data landscape is vast –
Sundial is curated.

The number of datasets available and marketed to investors is growing, but many datasets do not have predictive power. This can create a time-consuming testing effort for investors.

We offer curated data and derived data products, that in many cases has been incorporated in M Science investment research.

Some data sources are difficult to obtain –
Sundial has forged the partnerships.

Differentiated data can be valuable
for alpha-generation. But differentiated data can be
hard to obtain; it can be expensive, unstructured, and
present complex legal questions.

We only work with data that we believe
is predictive of KPIs, that is differentiated,
and that has met our quality standards.
Some of our data is exclusively available
through Sundial. And we can help you
implement it in your process.

02.

Finding non-commoditized data can be resource intensive –
Sundial has done the legwork.

Our team of domain experts has tested dozens
of datasets in our years of operating
in the alternative data space.
We understand the predictive power,
applicability, and durability that investors need.

Successful partnerships are invaluable –
Sundial can vet your data.

The amount of legwork and organizational capability
needed to monetize data can often be the roadblock.
Through the dedicated data acquisition and data testing
teams at Sundial and M Science, we can help uncover
and demonstrate the value of your data.

03.

We understand that customer support cannot wait until the next day.

We are a high-touch support-centric organization.
We know that implementation is a critical component
of successfully using data in an investment process.
Complex datasets frequently have both untapped alpha,
and a potentially challenging implementation ramp.

As such, we aim to help with implementation
of any data we offer –
we have experience deploying our data,
which enables us to help you
speed up your implementation process.
