The combination of RS Metrics advanced satellite data and signals with Wolfe Research’s top-ranked research and client servicing brings alternative data down to earth for institutional investors.

“The incorporation of alternative data into the research process is necessary to derive alpha but it can be challenging for clients to evaluate and extract value from the various datasets in the market,” noted Wolfe’s Co-Head of Global Sales, Mackenzie Fulk. “Our Quantitative Research, Economics, Strategy (QES) professionals review countless data companies for quality, alpha generation, and value, and RS Metrics is one of the few companies that exceeds our demanding requirements. We are excited for the opportunity to bring their data products to our clients and show multiple ways to extract value.”
