Ipreo Partners with Social Alpha to Power Social Media Analytics

New York – Sep 1, 2015 – Social Alpha, a premier provider of market information to financial market participants announced today that the company has entered into a marketing arrangement with Ipreo to integrate new social media analytics capabilities into BD Corporate, Ipreo’s flagship investor relations (IR) workflow platform.

Utilizing Social Alpha’s flexible and customizable API based social analytics platform, Ipreo can now offer investor relations officers (IROs) the ability to identify investor sentiment and information on a given stock from the most relevant social media influencers, allowing them to quickly and accurately respond to potential threats and opportunities. This capability has become increasingly vital following the SEC’s decision in 2013 to allow companies to disseminate material disclosures over social media in compliance with Regulation FD (Fair Disclosure).

Social Alpha’s platform uses machine learning and natural language processing techniques to identify market-moving content and leading indicators of large price moves. Assigning positive and negative sentiments to data sources, Social Alpha also allows IR professionals to assess and recalibrate their campaign strategies by identifying the most active and influential users.

“Our platform allows data providers to leverage the power of data science to extract the most relevant insights from unstructured social data,” said Prem Melville, CEO of Social Alpha. “We’re excited to work with Ipreo to provide actionable insights to aid IR professionals in their efforts to enhance and protect the reputations of their clients across social media.”

“Providing IROs with insight into the investment community — through shareholder analysis, perception studies, investor profiles, targeting, etc. — is a core premise of Ipreo’s offering. Social media monitoring is a natural complement,”,” said Agnies Watson, EVP and Managing Director of Workflow Solutions, Ipreo. “Integrating Social Alpha into BD Corporate allows us to put information and sentiment generated through social media at the fingertips of IROs in a meaningful and intuitive way.”
