Quantitative analysis & data management

LSEG Quantitative Analytics Database

Unlock efficiencies with our ready-to-use data: focus more time on exploration, model-building and testing.

Upgrade your workflows with our Quantitative Analytics Database

Quants and data scientists spend a staggering 40%-80% of their average day gathering, cleansing and normalising data from disparate sources. Only then can this data be used to power machine learning or traditional statistical models.

At the same time, the search for differentiated strategies demands new and innovative data sets – but turning around proprietary or niche third-party data for analysis is a challenge, especially when this needs to be done at speed.

LSEG’s Quantitative Analytics Database allows you to unlock an unrivalled range of ready-to-use content, as well as advanced tools that allow you to integrate proprietary data. The result: more time to develop and test differentiated ideas, optimise portfolios, manage risk and create alpha.
