Abstract

Financial services firms - from private equity to hedge funds and everything in between - are among the leading organizations in data science today.  This comes as no surprise, given the vast amount of alternative data now available for analytics. Firms looking to analyze credit card transactions, demographic trends, business landscapes, and more have an unprecedented amount of data at their fingertips. 

Economists at Goldman Sachs have leaned into their data science skills as they forecast in a year unlike any other. With the unique challenges posed by a global pandemic, POI and mobility data provide crucial details about the state of the economy and how consumer behavior impacts financial performance. When combined with other alternative datasets, geospatial data enables economists to develop models based on specific locations and generate more accurate forecasts.

Join David Mericle and Ronnie Walker, economists at Goldman Sachs, and Jason Richman, Director of Enterprise Sales at SafeGraph, as they discuss using POI and mobility data for economic forecasting and deeper insights into the financial effects of COVID-19.
