Investors, both discretionary and systematic, have traditionally relied on standardized financial data and news to drive investment decisions. As mass adoption of the social web advances the speed, reach, and mechanics of modern communication, the arc of information dissemination flattens, dislocating conventional forms of data discovery and investment research.

With over 1 million tags mapped to 3,000 public and private companies, TickerTags maps and monitors the multitude of tangible and intangible business drivers that move and influence companies and markets. Structuring alternative data for the investment industry is often a laborious, resource-intensive and time-consuming exercise. As a leading word mention frequency investment tool, TickerTags converts conversation activity into valuable investment insight that is useful for investment analysis.

Knowledge of significant changes in mention frequency can be a leading indicator of financial results. When that knowledge is combined with M Science's unique data driven research, the resulting platform facilitates investment idea formation and measures immense volumes of unstructured data for market relevancy.

TickerTags' product suite will include written research mapping words and products of significance to investable assets, as well as a data solution featuring minute-by-minute statistical analysis and actionable insights. Unlike conventional research, TickerTags' analytical intelligence identifies and corroborates consumer information that can foreshadow corporate trends and events by quantifying engagement for a given topic. In this way, TickerTags serves to bridge, filter, and measure immense volumes of otherwise noisy and unusable unstructured mass media data for market relevancy.

TickerTags data will be an additional input in M Science's core research offering, M Analysis, which utilizes a unique mosaic of data sources and employs proprietary methodologies to produce data driven intelligence on companies across sectors in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
