Tammer Kamel spent some formative years as a quant. Now a self-declared "Wall Street refugee", he runs five year old Quandl (https://www.quandl.com/), a data outfit tailored for quantitative analysts. Quandl burst on to the scene by making data sets more useful, delivering data the way a modern quant wants data. The company has recently expanded into developing its own alternative data sets that are being used by some of the smartest investors around.
Tammer joins us on the Tearsheet Podcast this week to talk about how the data business is evolving around the changing nature of quantitative investing. We talk about where demand is coming and how his firm is coping with the challenges of building for scale.
