The Quickest Way for Funds to Get Quality Data: Meet NewtonX Prime
| May 14, 2023
Many hedge funds and private equity firms today are being sorely challenged by economic and market volatility. The leading firms are using new technology to maintain their edge, and those without it risk falling behind.
Nearly 97 percent of US hedge funds underperform their benchmarks, according to S&P. In private equity, spiking interest rates in the second half of 2022 caused a sharp decline in deals, exits, and fund-raising, according to Bain & Co. And venture capital is still coping with the 2022 retrenchment in the tech sector, which saw deal flow drop by a quarter between the first and fourth quarter of that year, Pitchbook reports.
In order to outperform in these volatile markets and drive consistent returns for investors, fund managers need to be able to separate signals from noise quickly to understand business fundamentals.

The old-school approach to research — slow and inefficient
In the past, investors had to rely on expert networks for qualitative interviews. This had a number of problems:
Anecdotal information collected from too few sources who might not be ideal experts or who might perpetuate confirmation biases
It is extremely time-consuming. If time is the denominator of return on time, longer research processes lower the return on time
Using traditional research firms that do not have broad access to validated experts available in real-time can result in poor or biased information, and data that might miss insightful opinions by reflecting only the herd view
