Boston - Wall Street Horizon has announced that IHS Markit's new Hub Horizon corporate event data service, which is powered by Wall Street Horizon's event data, has officially launched.

Markit Hub Horizon provides forward-looking corporate event dates and information on over 5,000 North American and 7,000 international companies. More than 20 event types are covered, including earnings dates, dividend dates, splits and investor related conferences.

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.

Commenting on the partnership, Bruce Fador, president and CCO of Wall Street Horizon, said: "Investors today are increasingly looking to non-traditional sources of data to help fuel alpha. Whether it's through satellite imagery of parking lots, 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."
