Mar 1 2017 | 8:00pm ET

Corporate event data provider Wall Street Horizon has announced that IHS Markit’s new Hub Horizon corporate event data service, which is powered by the company's industry-leading event data, has officially launched.

Markit Hub Horizon provides extremely accurate and reliable forward-looking corporate event dates and information on over 5,000 North American and 7,000 international companies, the company said in a statement. More than 20 event types are covered, including earnings dates, dividend dates, splits and investor related conferences. The data helps investment managers avoid surprises, save time and make informed investment decisions.

The Hub Horizon data is available alongside several other datasets within Markit Hub, which provides a centralized interface for managing sell-side and independent research, industry content, economic research, company fundamentals and filings. More than 20,000 financial market professionals, representing over 14,000 investment firms, use Markit Hub to access research, news and data from global banks, news and third-party research providers.

“Investors today are increasingly looking to non-traditional sources of data to help fuel alpha,” said Bruce Fador, president and CCO of Wall Street Horizon, in the statement. “Whether it’s through satellite imagery, social media sentiment or esoteric event types like the ones tracked by Wall Street Horizon, this alternative data is providing significant value to managers of all types. We’re excited to formally go live as the data provider behind Markit Hub Horizon.”

Founded in 2003 and based outside Boston, Wall Street Horizon provides institutional investors and traders with comprehensive information and data about corporate events such as earnings dates, dividend dates, options expiration dates, splits and investor conferences. The company’s products are available via API or the Enchilada online suite, and on select financial industry platforms.
