    Alternative Data - it's new, it's different, but what is it?

    'Alternative Data' is a relatively new topic but it offers so much. How should our industry embrace something so new and so different that many of us - maybe even most of us - do not understand it. We have all heard about monitoring the carparks at Walmart and satellite study of crops but what other data is 'Alternative' and who is offering it - and in what format? Furthermore is 'Alternative' always good and always useful?
