Our Real-Time in Mostly Driven by Data

As the economy moved to be more online-based than it had been previously, the entire market and industry players within it had to adapt quickly, meaning those businesses that didn’t shift to online simply ceased to exist or had to reduce their operations. Others, meanwhile, gradually faded away. Under the on-again-off-again pandemic-related lockdowns, businesses and organisations seeking more indicators with which to assess this new reality increasingly turned to data. And what reflects our reality in real time more accurately than online data?

Crowdsourced VPNs: your key to complete online freedom

The Internet, once founded on the egalitarian principle of complete transparency, is now routinely altered by geolocation. In short, this means that different sets of web pages are available to users depending on where they’re browsing from.

When it comes to the financial sector (e.g., private equity, asset management, wealth management, etc.) investment decisions have been heavily swayed by financial factors, such as quarterly earnings reports.

ESG investing is reshaping financial markets

Gone are the days when the Friedman Doctrine – which states that a company’s sole responsibility is to its shareholders – was the accepted way of doing business.
