Future-gazing: Alternative Data trends for 2023

8th December 2022 2-4pm HKT

In partnership with Morgan Stanley as Diamond sponsor, this event is exclusive to Neudata and Morgan Stanley clients.

From new regulation and disclosure requirements, to growing interest in Asia’s private equity and venture capital sector, this year has enabled the explosive growth of alternative data investments within the APAC region – but will continued geopolitical tension and regulatory risks continue to cast doubt among investors?

Join Neudata on December 8th as data providers explore the rise in the APAC data trends they’re seeing first hand. We’ll also be speaking to fund managers that are currently using these data sources and ask them to share the trend predictions they foresee for 2023.
