Author: Will Jan

Date: February 6, 2020


Fueled by data science and driven by alpha and the desire to generate positive returns on investments, AlphaSense, Kensho Technologies (an S&P Global company), Palantir Technologies, and Prattle (a Liquidnet company) are on the forefront of offering investment discovery in financial services. These firms utilize AI to uncover investment opportunities hidden in seas of data. While the four players have a wide spread of revenue figures, they were chosen not based on their revenue size or years in the market but rather their technological contributions to the investment discovery segment. This report analyzes the respective positioning of these top four players, and their individual prospects for successful market positioning.



Outsell uses all publicly available information and its own insight and research into the companies themselves to understand and analyze the performance and positioning of the providers we are examining. As part of this analysis, Outsell conducted four on-the-record briefings with the four listed providers about company strategy, platforms, and go-to-market solutions as well as secondary research to identify major product and service announcements and key partnerships.
