CloudQuant’s Partnership with DTCC Delivers Investment Signals and Tests Data Value Accelerating Data Decision Making Across Financial Services Firms

Chicago, IL and New York, NY --News Direct-- CloudQuant

CloudQuant (CQ) announced today, as part of its partnership with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), the premier post-trade market infrastructure for the global financial services industry, that it has delivered new investment signal research and dataset analysis leveraging data from DTCC’s Data Services, including DTCC’s Equity Kinetics and Investor Kinetics. The collaboration results, which enabled CloudQuant researchers to successfully develop novel strategies outperforming the S&P 500 using DTCC’s anonymized and aggregated post-trade data, were published in two new reports: the Equity Kinetics paper and Investor Kinetics paper.

Through this partnership, CloudQuant successfully decomposed investment returns to prove that DTCC’s Equity Kinetics and Investor Kinetics are novel sources of information not currently incorporated into market prices. This finding has enabled CloudQuant to generate new signals, based on the DTCC data, to assist investors in configuring strategies to inform trading decisions. With CloudQuant Liberator, CQ and DTCC research demonstrated a potential cumulative return of more than 220% over 10 years. CQ Liberator signals were leveraged to test the data on a quant basis, to identify strong investment signals that are valuable to both fundamental and quantitative investors in both long-only and long-short portfolio formats.

“We are pleased to work with CloudQuant and to leverage their technology and quantitative capabilities to demonstrate how our activity-based data solutions can help our clients generate alpha as well as why our data services should be considered across a wide spectrum of investor types and trading strategies,” said Dan Magarino, DTCC Managing Director and Head of Data Services Product Strategy. “Our goal is to continue innovating with data and providing value to our clients with CloudQuant’s support in data engineering, evaluation and distribution.”

“Our researchers analyze hundreds of datasets per year. DTCC data is unique and provides an exclusive look into US equity market fund flows,” said CloudQuant Founder and CEO, Morgan Slade. “DTCC distills an immense amount of investor activity through its post-trade data and is the authoritative primary source for institutional investors looking for supply and demand signals in the market. These signals provide research and execution ideas to all client types who want to take full advantage of DTCC’s data.”
