Project ID: 684310

Periodic Reporting for period 2 - AMPED (AlphaSense Market Penetration and European market Development)

Reporting period: 2016-05-01 to 2016-11-30

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

AlphaSense is the provider of a search engine used by analysts and portfolio managers, including many of the world’s leading investment firms and banks. The company has gained strong adoption particularly with North American investment managers, and is now expanding its service reach in Europe and other new market segments. AlphaSense provides an innovative combination of leading edge language processing technologies yielding major time savings for knowledge professionals, who are currently wasting countless hours browsing through various information sources without effective search tools.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

Before AlphaSense launched, there were no financial and context-aware semantic search engines available to European buy-side investment managers, wealth managers and market researchers. The lack of access to efficient search and information management tools could have attributed to efficiency losses across the European economy.
AlphaSense will increase efficiency for these professionals with:
- Actionable results with one search across global filings, earnings call and conference transcripts, IR
presentations, press releases, broker research, new, trade and industry journals, and client’s own content and annotations
- Ability to instantly cross reference what has been said in prior disclosures or by related companies
- Searching, reading, highlighting and annotating of any document, including client’s own
- Receiving automated email alerts on saved searches
- Showing powerful Blackline Reports to track changes across company filings
- Providing access to relevant broker research, and allows filtering them for more insightful discoveries
