Manage episode 303780756 series 2983047
In this episode I speak to Francesco Filia of Fasanara Capital, a fund that has been buying loans from the market for over a decade. Over that time Fasanara has developed a substantial amount of alternative data around borrowers, creating an ever more advanced selection process for future purchases.
In other news, an apology: Last week I mistakenly suggested Bloomberg had bought alternative data provider Second Measure for $200m, the true figure is undisclosed but closer to $100m.
A date for the diary: I am speaking in London at Leading Point's Data Kitchen on Tuesday 26th October with the theme “Is Alternative Data still Alternative?”. Londoners can find a ticket here https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/data-kitchen-is-alternative-data-still-alternative-in-person-tickets-175322984767 and virtual tickets are here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/data-kitchen-is-alternative-data-still-alternative-virtual-tickets-175331409967
