Big Data is a popular term used to describe extremely large sets of data which can be analysed using advanced technologies to reveal patterns, trends, and associations. Big Data changes how we shop, eat, network and how we invest, transforming companies, sectors and the broader economy. Using technology and data to deliver cutting-edge investment insights, the Goldman Sachs CORE® Equity Portfolios employ a disciplined application of quantitative techniques to capture both the fundamental as well as the behavioural aspects driving companies’ stock returns.
