We are a data analytics company located in London and Bilbao. We are developing a data science software that allows our clients to analyze complex problems and find actionable insights.

We collect and analyze data, transforming it into alternative data, to help our world class customers all around the world make better investment decisions. We can’t tell you more for now, as strong NDA’s apply, but we bet some beers you know their names ;)
