Sentifi launches algorithm based financial event detection for investment decisions

June 12, 2015

Zurich, June 12, 2015 –, a leading Crowd-Intelligence platform for financial markets, releases today a beta version of a new artificial intelligence based service identifying important events and issues related to listed stocks worldwide. This increases the efficiency of market monitoring for market participants and allow them to receive signals not available in classical financial information systems.

The final objective is to offer a 360° view of all aspects with a financial impact on any listed company. The impact of events and issues can be seen on a company level or on a portfolio of companies. In this way it is possible to see in one view for example which of the FTSE 350 companies being associated with M&A activities – updated every hour. Blog1_01

Signals and insights from the crowd are generated from machine based text analysis of publicly available news, blogs and tweets. Using financial big data and self-learning technologies, Sentifi structures more than 6 million messages per day from the above mentioned 1.2 million stakeholders. Each message that can be allocated to one or more of the 40’000+ listed companies, indices, currencies and commodities which Sentifi analyses will then be matched with several million variations of financial events and issues. Finally every message is ranked according to its financial relevance so that readers can focus on the most important ones only.

“This is an important milestone in Sentifi’s strategy to build and keep its position as a global leader in Crowd-Intelligence for global financial markets” says Anders Bally, Founder and CEO of Sentifi. “Similar to other disruptive crowd-based models such as Uber, Spotify and Airbnb, Sentifi continues to invest heavily in building and expanding a scalable technological platform to interact with the crowd” he adds.
