“All the Information” or “Just the News”

Kevin Pomplun (SkyGrid)
Location: Starlight Roof

Today’s hedge fund managers, portfolio fund managers, and research analysts enjoy state-of-the-art desktop news feeds but still spend considerable time and effort scouring the Internet for market-moving information. SkyGrid meets the needs of these financial professionals by combining real-time delivery of standard financial news with breaking news from a growing catalog of millions of Internet sources, including websites, blogs, product review sites, local and regional newspapers, and press releases, delivering on one screen (or via API) a comprehensive, real-time view of all available information that may affect a stock’s price. SkyGrid also uses patent-pending natural language processing (NLP) techniques to automatically classify each news item by positive, negative, or neutral sentiment. This presentation will explore how SkyGrid is redefining “news” for financial professionals.
