Traditional market data2

Traditional market data is widely available, which reduces its ability to offer unique value to investors and management consultants.

This lack of exclusivity has encouraged management consultants and investors like hedge funds, private equity groups and the broader investment world to search for new methods to identify investment and performance indicators, the so-called alpha metric.

Alternative data has become the primary source of market data for creating this alpha metric. Unlike conventional sources, such as earnings reports and macroeconomic data, alternative data come from outside the traditional financial sector. Its collection is more stand-alone, and its purpose is more closely aligned with specific industry needs.

Often, it is this specific nature which makes the data so unique and rich with insight and untapped opportunity. These qualities make it ideal for management consultants and investors looking to identify more unique investment ideas.

The Benefits of Mintec

Mintec believes that although price information is widely available for exchange-traded commodities, many of the critical inputs to food products are from non-exchange traded ingredients. Which make understanding their real price opaque.

The insight developed from these less visible prices provides evidence of supply and demand trends and suggest the direction for future commodity purchases. They also help to influence new product development and inform significant investment decisions.

Understanding future profitability is an essential component of any investment decision. Access to Mintec data reveals changing price trends affecting a company’s direct food costs. A robust leading indicator with regards to the future profitability of any business.

This rich data source provides hedge funds and investors an unprecedented level of price granularity for the food and beverage sector. While the breadth of coverage enables comparisons, dependencies and trends to be isolated.
