PRNewswire – New York — Visible Alpha, LLC, an investment research technology firm, has been awarded First Place Overall Winner of the 2016 Benzinga Fintech Awards for its innovative research and analysis platform, and the Winner of the Research Platforms, Apps and Tools category. This award recognizes the Visible Alpha technology for enabling the creation of an entirely new category of research data and analytics for the institutional investment community.
Visible Alpha’s technology extracts a highly granular level of detail across all aspects of corporate performance from analysts’ forecast models. It intelligently integrates various providers’ data, allowing for the deepest level of analysis and comparison between analysts’ forecasts, and leading to unique insights to inform investment decisions.
The Visible Alpha concept uniquely benefits the investment ecosystem. For the buy side, it delivers perspectives previously unavailable, providing visibility into multiple analysts’ underlying assumptions and across the most detailed set of performance measures on the market – from earnings estimates and balance sheet data to segment financial forecasts. Sell side firms can now provide their clients with deeper access to their data along with the ability to compare an analyst’s forecasts to other analysts, fostering more productive conversations that showcase their most important research.
“It is an honor to be recognized for our commitment to innovation as we create an entirely new dimension for investment research,” said CEO Scott Rosen. “At Visible Alpha, we are fostering an era of transparency in equity research, helping investors gain deeper and more quantifiable insight from the rich analysis performed by the sell side analyst community.”
“I would like to personally congratulate Visible Alpha on its win at the Benzinga Fintech Awards,” said Benzinga founder and CEO Jason Raznick. “Its platform embodies the spirit of the category and fintech in general. We look forward to seeing what Visible Alpha can do in the future.”
