Take timely advantage of data on China

Global interest in China equities has exploded in recent years with regulatory reforms and the upweighting of A-shares in regional and global benchmark indices. Yet investment research specialists, keen to take advantage of the growing market opportunity in China, need to be able to risk-manage their offerings and approaches for alpha generation.

Investors struggle with the markedly different market data distribution mechanisms in China, as well as latency issues resulting from geographic distance and language translation times. Data collection requires a large manual effort with a lack of access to new, timely market data, and datasets are typically processed in an unstructured manner.
