Coegil will shape the future of finance by radically improving the ubiquity of independent and co-authored research and by making data science accessible to all regardless of their expertise. Coegil seeks to empower asset managers to ideate and explore on their terms by allowing them to work directly with data science providers and by removing many of the barriers which make this difficult to achieve today.
Our mission is to build an efficient marketplace for investment professionals, data and analytics providers, and data science practitioners to rapidly evolve their Ideas to Insights to opportunities with near-zero latency, cost and at scale. Ultimately, Coegil will become the Amazon & Uber for the Data Science economy.
Existing analytic platforms are closed and have prevented the proliferation of an efficient economy for independent research. Asset managers and data science providers are separated by a common set of challenges.
Coegil solves these problems by combining familiar consumer user experiences with Wall Street execution while removing the hurdles from building an internal, state-of-the-art research house. Now investment professionals can manage their cost of ownership and drive return on investment.
