estimize

A unique form of alternative data is crowdsourcing earnings estimates. It works!
In our December 2016 issue, we told the story of how fintech firm Estimize has attempted to replicate a successful market model, where hedge funds got sell-side analysts to rank stocks within a sector to produce more accurate forecasts.
In our new section, FINtech Focus, we will profile one of these firms. While FINtech is a broad category, we will be focusing on firms that specifically cater to the alternative investment industry. This week we take a look at Estimize.
