The Alpha Factor Library is used to assisting customers to identify or validate attractively priced stocks with strong underlying fundamentals. The utility was also developed by S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Quantamental Research Team, which is leveraged and supported by institutional investors to formulate investment strategies and track the performance of investment styles.

Given the new agreement between the two venues, SGX Index Edge will gain immediate access to the research and datasets that are available through S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Alpha Factor Library. As an aside, the access will also enable SGX Index Edge to better identify and quantify sources of alpha and enhance its existing index research and design capabilities.

The area of focus for the joint initiative will be the APAC region, aimed at developing additional customization capabilities of index offerings for issuers, asset managers and investors in the region.
