Coalesce.Info, a research application that combines machine learning with human expertise for intelligent investment research, is pleased to partner with PitchBook, a private financial market data platform. Through the partnership, Coalesce will now provide API access to PitchBook’s superior information for use in the entire lifecycle of private capital investing.
For more than a decade, PitchBook has provided information on the global private capital markets, including financing rounds, valuations and deal terms. Coalesce, a pioneer of AI in the financial sector, uses IBM Watson to dramatically increase investment research productivity by filtering and analyzing vast quantities of textual content faster than humanly possible.
Investment researchers and analysts are overwhelmed with data, especially with the exponential growth of unstructured content. Users of Coalesce teach the system to perform repetitive searches on their behalf, dramatically improving their research effectiveness and resulting in highly actionable targeted information and competitive advantage.
“At PitchBook we work to arm professionals with the most comprehensive data on the private capital markets as well as the tools to make the data actionable and easy to analyze,” said Steve Carver, Managing Director of PitchBook. “We’re able to extend that effort through our latest partnership with Coalesce’s platform that uses AI for content analysis, and integrates our data into our clients’ workflow where they’re already doing their work.”
“We are excited to include PitchBook’s comprehensive information on private capital markets in our product,” shared Greg Woolf, founder and CEO of Coalesce.Info. “The richness of PitchBook’s data combined with IBM Watson for intelligent searches dramatically improves productivity and provides a competitive advantage to our mutual clients.”
