ALEXANDRIA, VA, UNITED STATES, December 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- BCMstrategy, Inc. announced today the launch of free toolkits for portfolio managers and risk managers through LinkedIn. Twice a month, a LinkedIn newsletter will analyze frontier issues raised by alternative data generated from public policy, particularly for anticipating market volatility arising from global macro, digital currency and climate finance policy.

The Alternative Data and Volatility Newsletter meets growing market demand for insight on how to use alternative data to measure systematic risks and market volatility arising from public policy. “The ability to generate objective data from public policy processes raises important questions about the evolution of risk pricing tools that can maximize the value of that data,” said Barbara C. Matthews, Founder and CEO of BCMstrategy, Inc. “Market participants that still measure public policy risks through manual spreadsheet adjustments seek to minimize the biases inherent in those processes by using more objective and automated mechanisms. This newsletter supports their initiatives by sharing lessons learned at the innovation frontier.”

The Alternative Data and Volatility Newsletter will address three main themes:
1. The Alternative Data Frontier: Why quantitative data derived from human language (especially public policy language) is different from other datasets;
2. The Quantitative Finance Frontier: Why policy language data helps portfolio managers anticipate market volatility and helps a range of strategists (not just quants) anticipate outcomes;
3. The Ethical Frontier: Why it is important to approach the generation and use of policy-related language quantification with a commitment to objectivity, honesty, and integrity.
The newsletter’s defines data broadly to include both quantitative data derived used natural language processing/understanding as well as pools of language used as training data for machine learning and artificial intelligence mechanisms that automate predictive analytics. “We hope that the LinkedIn newsletter format sparks conversation with a broad audience about best practices in data generation and related market volatility measurement amid rapid evolution,” said Ms. Matthews.
