TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 20, 2019--

Nasdaq’s Quandl, a leading provider of alternative data, today announced the fourth annual Quandl Data Conference (QDC 2020) at Convene’s 46th St. location in New York City on Thursday, January 23, 2020. Featured speakers include Kirk McKeown, head of proprietary research at Point72; Matthew Rothman, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs; Chris Meredith, Chief Investment Officer at O’Shaughnessy Asset Management; and a keynote from Brian Koppelman, executive producer of Showtime’s “Billions” and co-writer of “Ocean’s Thirteen.”

Across seven hours of programming and three hours of networking, the one-day event will see alt data and data science pioneers converge on the key pain point facing the industry today: how to identify profit-generating information among the glut of data that now exists.

“The biggest opportunity for investors this decade is to find signals buried in the enormous amount of data generated by the digital economy,” said Tammer Kamel, CEO of Quandl. “Four years ago, we launched the Quandl Data Conference to educate the industry on the viability of alternative data, and it has become the single most important event in the space. This year we’re excited to reconvene around the key challenge on everyone’s mind: how to manage the nearly inedible feast of data.”

Additional presenters and the full agenda will be announced in the weeks leading up to the conference.
