Leveraging Central Bank and Corporate Communications with Machine Learning for Investment Decision Making
In this presentation, leaders from two emerging FinTech firms — Prattle and Lucena Research — show how they have joined forces to advance predictive analytics with machine learning. Prattle and Lucena will review how they have created unique and effective investment signals for various asset types. These signals include macroeconomic and foreign exchange pairs derived from central bank communications, and equity signals based on corporate earnings communications.
The process begins with a central bank official’s speech, or a CEO’s earnings call. These public communications are analyzed by Prattle’s proprietary natural language processing algorithms to yield quantitative sentiment scores. Lucena then converts the scores into actionable intelligence for specific investment in markets, sectors, currencies, commodities and individual stocks. This presentation will showcase how Lucena’s technologies separate actionable intelligence from noise.
