Estimize is an open financial estimates platform which facilitates the aggregation of fundamental estimates from independent, buy-side, and sell-side analysts, along with those of private investors and students. By sourcing estimates from a diverse community of individuals, Estimize provides both a more accurate and more representative view of expectations compared to sell side only data sets which suffer from several severe biases.
Over 3,500 analysts contribute to Estimize out of a registered user base of more than 20,000, resulting in coverage on over 900 stocks each quarter. The Estimize consensus has proven more accurate than comparable sell side data sets over 65% of the time.
The firm was founded in 2011 by former quantitative hedge fund analyst Leigh Drogen, with the belief that the financial ecosystem was ready for an estimates platform built with an open and transparent philosophy.
Estimize data is now available on major financial research platforms such as Bloomberg.
