More data, more insights

November 10, 2021

Prospective clients often ask us what Global Predictions can offer them that they can’t find elsewhere, or with their existing financial manager. We have two answers: more accessible data, and, with that, more models, insights and synthesis.  


Let’s start with the limitations of human analysis. One person, financial professional or otherwise, can only consider so many pieces of data before needing to rely on models. Models, while fallible, allow us to increase the aperture of data and time horizons we can consider. 


With that in mind, using Global Predictions is like having 20 data analysts, connecting the best of macro-research and diverse data sources about the economy with the specifics of your financial goals, as represented within your portfolio. 


Plus, we process a lot more data: more data sets, from more sources, that are more frequently analyzed than any individual analyst within a brokerage or otherwise could expect to wrangle. We then synthesize that data using our library of models, and map what the models say directly against your portfolio. This allows us to ask many types of questions, like how would your portfolio fare in a recession, or what are the underlying drivers of a portfolio, insights that traditional data (in absence of a model, and without access to your investment portfolio) can’t answer. 


And then we get to the models. Most industry analysts have specific objectives, often scoped by their employer -- there are industry analysts for specific equities, and specific sectors, within most major financial firms. At Global Predictions, we’ve built a model-of-models that’s quantitatively and systematically pulling in a diversity of data to enhance our understanding of relationships and risk factors throughout the global economy. We believe that while no single model will be perfect, we can reduce risk and enhance returns by combining different types of models and algorithms, pairing those with grounded assumptions, and running more simulations to help our clients understand their investments. 


Taken together, that means that Global Predictions can recommend sector and asset class opportunities rooted in this global, data-centric outlook. Rather than scouring the headlines for opportunities and risk factors, Global Predictions models put data from diverse sources to work for you, in your portfolio. 


Global Predictions recommendations are highly contextual to your account. As we learn more about your goals and risk appetite, our system can give more tailored recommendations. Remember, only you can implement these changes: we do not make trades or alter your financial holdings in any way. However, our best guess is that a few visits to Global Predictions will inspire you to make changes, increasing your confidence that your money is under control. 


Global Predictions helps our users leverage huge amounts of data and the power of predictions to make informed decisions about their portfolios. By uploading your investments, understanding the drivers behind your performance and gaining data-derived insights about the risks and opportunities in your portfolio, Global Predictions helps you break through the noise and gain control.
