Quantitative analysts typically use several alternative data streams to inform investment and risk models. While specific needs vary by industry, the goal is usually to inform decision-making, detect change, or measure effects over time or space. In these scenarios, location as an alternative data source can add a lot of value, especially for hedge funds, real estate investors and the public sector.

Typical use cases for location as an alt-data stream include:

  • Measuring mobility and foot traffic around stores or other brand locations;
  • Tracking trends in areas under pandemic restrictions vs. unrestricted areas;
  • Calculating the impact of migration and income flow to and from major cities;
  • Understanding the effects of social distancing; and
  • Identifying emerging areas of growth and opportunity.

“Since the onset of COVID, interest levels in location data surged in multiple industries,” said Thomas Walle, Unacast co-founder and CEO. “We wanted to make it easy for fund managers, equity funds, financial institutions and others to ingest location and get it into your own models.”
