Investment research made easier

Our data comes directly from sell-side analyst models. Over 100 brokers contribute models to Visible Alpha Insights.
How do you create consensus?
We process full working models from the sell side; apply machine learning to extract all of the assumptions buried deep within analyst models; create detailed consensus models across all of a company’s products, segments, geographies and business drivers; and continually update consensus with every new analyst model and revision received. This provides you with a normalized view of all the relevant metrics and key drivers in a clean, comparable consensus model.
How is Visible Alpha different than other consensus estimates providers?
Our underlying source data comes from full working sell-side analyst models, as opposed to the traditional method of scraping estimates from research reports. In addition, instead of relying on our users to provide us with the models, our sell-side partners send us direct feeds of their analyst models, enabling Visible Alpha to quickly process revisions and new models to provide you with real-time consensus estimates.
Does Visible Alpha add new companies to the platform?
We are continually adding new companies across the globe to the platform. Users can request coverage on any company from within the platform.
Does Visible Alpha ever onboard new brokers onto the platform?
We are always increasing coverage with new and current brokers. If a broker you work with is not contributing to our platform, we will work with you to onboard their content. If you are a broker who would like to start contributing content to Visible Alpha, please contact us.
