Unique Dividend Forecast Data Methodology

In these times of accelerating change our tech-driven approach gives us a powerful and disruptive edge over the older, more traditional forecasting methodologies.

Working from EDI’s global corporate actions database (dating back to 2012) our dividend projections are based on a combination of stated dividend policies and predictable patterns. The estimate data is generated by a dedicated London team working with our proprietary algorithm and enhanced with manual analyst input where required.

This algorithm+analyst approach gives estimates with both huge scale and strong accuracy – our forward-looking data runs two full fiscal years ahead for well over 32,000 securities including equity, ADR and ETF future projections.

Our Woodseer single stock forecast data-set went live in January 2017, and the ETF dividend forecast product launched in July 2019 with detailed forward projections (dates and amounts) for over 1400 ETFs including 700+ US-listed. Working closely with a specialist ETF data provider we combine their compositional ETF data with our own underlying security estimates to produce accurate ‘bottom-up’ forecasts.

Clients include asset managers and custodians, index providers, options market makers, hedge funds, single stock and index traders.
