Danel Capital is an AI company that uses machine learning and big data to produce predictive datasets, with the goal of helping improve the stock selection process in the asset management industry.

“We are delighted to offer our AI-powered predictive stock scoring, allowing asset managers to easily access our dataset. It includes the Smart Score, a global score that takes into account all the available market data for a specific stock, as well as separate sub-scores by indicator type: fundamental, technical and sentiment, to adapt to different asset management styles,” said Tomás Diago, CEO of Danel Capital. “Our partnership with Crux enables us to offer our dataset on an easy-to-use platform, with the highest levels of service and security.”

Crux on Data & Sustainability

     Efficient energy usage makes sustainability possible–but how do we address this need now for the future? For some time, renewable energy sources, such as biomass, wind and solar power have brought us closer to addressing our growing energy demand and carbon output. But with the digitization of many industries and the rise in data-driven business models, few are aware of the immense impact that technology and data processing have on our energy usage. This growth is unsustainable.  As technology leaders, we share a responsibility to understand and address our data carbon footprint. Ingraining sustainability into our practice and measuring our collective impact now is crucial to avoid the risk of future problems that can cause even greater harm.

     There is a significant energy cost associated with data, exacerbated by its exponentially growing demand and the vast amount of processing, storage, and replication happening across industries. Although storage costs per unit of data continue to come down, there are still unsustainable physical, economic, and energy costs. The carbon footprint of information and communications technology is currently measured to be 2% of global emissions, and expected to grow to 8% by 2030. With firms spending approximately 80% of their data resources in repetitive data processing, storage and management work, and only 20% on data science, we believe there’s ample opportunity to design and build better processes that avoid duplicative or inefficient data processes and enable more efficient data usage. 

     At Crux, we sit at the intersection of data and finance and see firsthand the need among firms to set their data infrastructure on a more sustainable path. In our analysis, it’s not a question of why sustainability is essential–it is simply something that needs to be done. Our community brings together data owners, data consumers, and technologists, all of whom share the energy usage of the broader data ecosystem. We embrace our role as connectors to provide a place for important conversations on sustainability to take place. By fostering this dialogue, we hope to find ways together to make the data supply chain and the use of ESG data more efficient.

     We invite our entire community to join over 25 of the leading experts and thought leaders in the sustainable technology and ESG investing sectors for 9 carefully crafted and impactful discussions on these and many other topics during our Data & Sustainability Summit on June 23rd and 24th. RSVP here.

Statement of support for racial equality and peaceful demonstration

Yesterday, on Blackout Tuesday, we listened to the overwhelming outpouring of grief, frustration and feelings of injustice.

Following the murder of George Floyd, the protests, and now the violence that is consuming many cities in the United States, we at Crux want to add our voice, unequivocally, to the rising tide of support for true racial equality and peaceful protest.

For too long both explicit and perniciously subtle forms of racism, and subsequent inequalities, have been allowed to endure. These underlying issues must be addressed and our society must change.  We hope for an immediate end to the violence and the destruction of property that distract attention from these urgent societal issues. And we more fervently hope for — and will do our part to work for — a more just society that treats every single member with equal respect, justice, and opportunity.
