We’re proud to announce the formation of an Advisory Board of FinTech leaders and experts to drive the next stage of our growth and distribution.
“We’re excited about the deep expertise and strong relationships that John Meserve, Evan Schnidman, Ph.D. and Bruce Fador bring to our new Advisory Board. Their combination of strengths is making an immediate impact,” said David Trainer, CEO of New Constructs.
New Constructs has recently received numerous academic and private sector accolades, including Core Earnings: New Data & Evidence, where Harvard Business School & MIT Sloan professors empirically demonstrate the novel, unique value-add of New Constructs data. Similarly, Indiana University professors recently published Man versus Machine: A Comparison of Robo-Analyst and Traditional Research Analyst Investment Recommendations showing New Constructs’ investment ratings outperform human analysts’ ratings. In the private sector, Ernst & Young co-authored “Getting ROIC Right” to demonstrate New Constructs’ superior analytics.
“With all the validation of New Constructs data and research from prestigious institutions and clients, I believe the company is poised for enormous growth. I look forward to helping the firm build on its already impressive roster of clients in nearly every market for fundamental data and analysis,” said John Meserve of Cragmoor Capital Advisors. See full press release.
“I am thrilled to be working with New Constructs, they have truly pioneered modern techniques for parsing financial filings. The combination of industry-leading data accuracy with cutting edge automation makes New Constructs the undeniable leader in Robo-Analyst technology. Cost pressures on the asset management industry and current financial market volatility make this technology, and the resulting data, more valuable than ever.” said Evan Schnidman.

From Bruce Fador: “I am very pleased to be working with David and New Constructs to help grow revenues and distribution. With their automated approach to sourcing data, New Constructs has truly leveraged machine learning to provide better, faster and cheaper way to source fundamental data.”
