Risk Training - Hero

Alternative data, or ‘unstructured data’, refers to the non-traditional data beyond the typical financial sources, such as geolocation, payment history and social media. The rise in the use of alternative data has enabled the financial services, including banks, to shape better decision making and credit assessment. 

This virtual live training course will explore the application of alternative data in the current financial industry and the effective practices of unstructured data set management, analysis and processing models. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to identify and address the potential challenges, pitfalls and risks in the use of alternative data.
