We are excited to announce that through an agreement with aiQ Corp Ltd., a Japan-based pioneer in AI-powered consumer insights and Big Data services, we now offer two unique datasets to investment professionals, offering unparalleled insights into Japanese consumer behavior and market trends.
These new datasets are:
- Point-of-Sale (POS) Retail Data from 6,000+ outlets across Japan
- POS Consumer Panel Surveys from 52,000 Japanese consumer respondents
“In today’s data-driven investment landscape, traditional financial data often falls short of revealing the complete picture,” said Vinesh Jha, CEO and founder of ExtractAlpha. “Many of our clients are interested in datasets covering Japanese equities, and this agreement with aiQ unlocks unique alternative datasets to help our clients gain additional alpha.”
The ExtractAlpha research team has found that Point-of-Sale data can reflect a company’s product sales at a more granular level and in a timelier manner, and can be an early indicator of a company’s top-line performance.
Institutional investors can use this information to predict future revenue growth and revenue surprises for Japanese consumer goods companies and retailers.
