The Results Are In: Feedback on the Alternative Data Weekly

We asked and you answered.

In our mission to continually improve the digital experience across all channels, we recently sent a survey to subscribers of our Alternative Data Weekly newsletter to gain insight on what you most enjoyed reading, what industries were of interest and what content you would like to see more of. We had a great response to the request and thank all those who took the time to help enrich our newsletter.

The feedback was overall positive with 82% of readers stating that they would recommend the Alternative Data Weekly to a friend. We also asked what you most liked about the newsletter, to which 85% of you replied that it kept you updated on news you wouldn’t otherwise find; 53% replied that it was relevant to your field of work and another 53% of you replied that it was succinct and well curated.
