For years, governments and large financial and economic institutions all around the world have been struggling to get relevant and timely macroeconomic measures. Indicators provided by official institutes are mostly lagged, inaccurate and discontinuous. To address this situation, QuantCube Technology has created a series of predictive macro indicators called “Smart Data”, designed to fulfill the long-held ambition of its founders: using the power of algorithms and data to estimate fundamental macroeconomic indicators in real-time and predict their evolution.
We are extracting and analyzing each day millions of data coming from various heterogeneous data sources : social media data, consumer reviews, products prices, satellite imagery, private corporate data, and much more. The diversity of our Data Warehouse is a key factor to ensure that we create extremely precise forward-looking indicators with high added value, by crossing multiple data sources.
We are able to offer real-time estimations and predictions of a large variety of fundamental macroeconomic indicators, including local and global economic growth, inflation, job and real estate market activity and political elections. These indicators are used by our clients for optimal long-term investments or to improve public policies and growth strategies.
Our macro indicators stand out due to their unique features: they are computed and adjusted in real-time and bear extremely precise forward-looking information. Among our main successes, we have been able to create a national inflation index which has a 2-week advance on the official estimate, and to predict the victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 US Presidential Election.
Real-time values of our macro Smart Data can be visualized and accessed at any time via a dedicated web platform or through an API data feed, for continuous integration and monitoring.
