This additional content will provide our clients with many more data points, leading to more and stronger signals for our clients to work with, plus vastly improved data coverage of commodities, smaller companies and emerging economies.

RavenPack, the premier provider of real-time financial news analysis services, has enhanced its flagship RavenPack News Analytics (RPNA) product with over 22,000 online sources of financial news and opinion, and also a new content curation system. The latter will help clients react to information derived only from publications they trust at the earliest possible point in the news cycle.

The new publications include the online editions of newspapers, journals and trade magazines, specialist financial news sites and blogs – all of which means that firms using news analytics to enhance returns from systematic or discretionary applications now have huge depth and breadth of coverage of the world’s financial and geopolitical news.

Because more sources can mean more noise in the data, RavenPack has also developed technology to curate the content – providing clients with a proprietary publisher ranking system, distinguishing between different levels of trust and impact by source, and only producing data relevant to business and finance. In addition, RPNA gives clients the ability to tell which publications lead the news cycle and how the story developed in the media.

“This additional content will provide our clients with many more data points, leading to more and stronger signals for our clients to work with, plus vastly improved data coverage of commodities, smaller companies and emerging economies,” said Armando Gonzalez, RavenPack’s Chief Executive. “We are generating ten times more structured data than we did before – a large slice of ‘Big Data’ - but we’re also helping clients get more out of the data with our content curation capabilities.”

RavenPack News Analytics will include seven years of historical data from web publications and blogs – adding to the 14 years’ archive of newswires content - a unique proposition for those wanting to find and test signals derived from unstructured content.
