Thasos Group, an alternative data intelligence firm that transforms real-time locations from mobile phones worldwide into objective and actionable insights, has been awarded “Best Overall Buy-Side Product” and “Best Buy-Side Newcomer (Vendor or Product)” for its “Streams” suite of services, at the 2017 Buy-Side Technology Awards, sponsored by Waters Technology.
Chosen by five buy-side-focused technology consultants and four Waters Buy-Side Technology journalists, the awards acknowledge excellence among the leading providers of technology products and services to the financial community. The “Best Buy-Side Newcomer (Vendor or Product)” award recognizes the most significant or groundbreaking product or company that has entered the marketplace since June of 2016. The “Best Overall Buy-Side Product” award is given to the top company or product among the winners of all 32 categories of awards, including trading platforms, analytics tools, cybersecurity providers and more.
“We are thrilled to have Thasos and our Streams services recognized for their innovative technology and the unique, actionable information we provide to investors and to companies,” said Greg Skibiski, CEO and founder of Thasos. “Thasos is committed to making alternative data accessible, including to those that lack teams of data scientists, and these awards are a testament to the importance of that mission and its success so far.”
With over five billion mobile phones broadcasting their locations throughout the world, Thasos taps the most powerful source of real-time data available today for measuring and forecasting economic activity across business sectors. Thasos uses the latest advances in artificial intelligence, distributed computing and privacy technology to turn billions of daily location events into highly accessible information that can be easily consumed, understood and acted upon by investors and business managers.
