State Street has unveiled Insights, a new research platform that offers clients proprietary research, exclusive data-driven indicators and the latest market commentary from the firm’s team of global macro strategists.
The firm says the new platform provides access an “intuitive and interactive format” tailored to their interests. “Whether it’s high-frequency inflation data, proprietary capital flow indicators, or sentiment shifts derived from millions of social media posts, access to data-driven asset intelligence can give our clients an edge,” says Nadine Chakar, executive vice president and head of State Street Global Markets. “We have a proven track record of providing valuable research, and throughout the global pandemic, our clients have relied on our partnership to weather market volatility at an unprecedented speed. We can now offer these solutions in a more dynamic and engaging platform via Insights.”
Insights offers a scrolling news feed of tailored content, detailed macro strategy analysis, and on-demand analytics with views on markets. It also has automatic alerts, indicator tracking algorithms and customisable saved views for charts and other content. Users will also be able to investigate past market performance after specific data signals with the Signal Studio tool, a new feature available exclusively to clients.
The new platform builds upon, and will eventually replace, State Street’s current IR3 web portal, the bank says.
“Our clients are inundated with data and research, but they often tell us that we provide perspectives they can’t get anywhere else,” says Will Kinlaw, head of State Street’s hub for partnerships with alternative data start-ups and renowned academics, State Street Associates. “We built these tools based on their feedback. The goal is to put all of this information at their fingertips and organise it around the markets that are top-of-mind on any given day.”
