TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quandl, the leading provider of alternative data, today launched an exclusive Corporate Aviation Intelligence (CAI) platform, which allows investors to monitor corporate jet flights globally to gain insight into various business transactions. This new dataset monitors more than 26,000 private aircraft to help predict potential M&A activity as well as corporate investments, partnerships and expansions.
Quandl has partnered with multiple organizations to provide the unified intelligence necessary to generate this unique dataset. With this data, investors can see in real-time where companies send their private jets and identify travel patterns to key locations.
As the preeminent alternative data platform and provider, Quandl is once again leading the market, meeting and anticipating client demand with a new generation of high-value insight and synthesized data products based on multiple data sources, analytics and data science.
“Aviation intelligence is the new essential dataset for investors,” said Tammer Kamel, CEO of Quandl. “With daily updates on jet movements available for nearly 70 percent of the S&P 500, our clients will be the first to know about market-changing corporate activity."
Jet movements have been proven valuable in predicting key corporate events. For example, in January 2017, the Johnson & Johnson jet stayed parked near Actelion HQ for five days, one week prior to announcing the $30 billion deal.
The CAI data feed is available exclusively from Quandl, with data beginning in late 2016. Quandl’s platform tracks 26,000 private aircraft representing travel patterns for 1,200 ticker-mapped public companies and 3,100 private companies as they fly to over 25,000 destinations worldwide.
