Shingan AD, a new service providing institutional investors with Japanese alternative data and data analysis, is set to be launched on December 1, 2019.

Nomura Research Institute Ltd (TYO:4307) has unveiled plans to launch a new service providing institutional investors with Japanese alternative data and data analysis. The release of the new service, called Shingan AD, is scheduled for December 1, 2019.

The company notes the growing use of alternative data in investment decision-making. Sourcing, cleansing, and preparing large amount of data for analysis presents a big challenge for institutional investors who are looking for untapped alpha.

NRI’s new offering allows institutional investors to easily access Japanese alternative data. A wide range of alternative data collected from Japanese companies and data vendors is available, as well as data processing and analysis services.

“Launching Shingan AD has been an exciting development for NRI, and we’re quite thrilled to see the already high demand for the Japanese alternative data from the global marketplace, particularly from North America,” said Shigeki Hayashi, Senior Corporate Managing Director of NRI.“ We’re proud of this new offering and are committed to helping fund managers and investors find untapped alpha in our market and support their data-driven investment initiatives.”

Shingan AD covers a wide range of data from various industries such as Consumer Transaction, PoS (Point of Sales), Mobile App, Healthcare and Sentiment Score data. Data presentation is customizable to the clients desired format, including raw, processed and/or in combination.

Combining state-of-the-art digital technology and existing data, Shingan Series, a group of NRI solutions, aims to “find the true values” of one’s assets. The first solution, Shingan, was launched in early 2019. Using AI, Shingan enables users to automatically extract Japanese data from multiple documents in different formats and relay it to a succeeding systems. Shingan AD is now added to Shingan Series as a new offering.

As the Japanese meaning of Shingan suggests (shin means “real” and gan means “eyes”), Shingan solution identifies and extracts accurate information with precision by combining Japanese language processing technology and machine and deep learning. The combined technologies make it possible to format non-standardized data that may be processed by extracting proper nouns from natural language.
