Our community members fundamentally want data from each other, and believe in cooperating to produce a more accurate, more representative data set without losing anything in return.

Estimize produces a audited track record of your accuracy as a fundamental analyst, and offers a deep set of analytics.

At Estimize we don’t judge estimates based on the background of the contributor, or how they arrived at their estimate. By using algorithms to review estimates before they are included in the consensus, and others to score estimates after the earnings release, we are able to maintain and extremely clean data set and prevent any gaming.

Please feel free to contribute regardless of your background or estimating methodology, many non professional analysts happen to be amongst our most accurate.

We provide the ability for analysts to remain anonymous. While all community members are asked to identify their professional or non professional status, we do not require real names, name of your firm, or your position. This preserves the ability for analysts to contribute without being compromised in any way.

At Estimize we take the need for certain members of the community to remain anonymous very seriously. Protection and privacy of your data is a core principle of our company.

Our privacy policy is crystal clear about our commitment to preserving your anonymity and observance of firm policies.

If you have further questions about compliance, please feel free to contact us, we regularly meet with compliance departments to review the platform for use within firms.

We use both a manual and algorithmic review process of every estimate entered into our system. Our algorithms look at attributes of each individual estimate, as well as the analyst’s track record, along with other factors. Estimize does not pass judgement on the reasoning behind an analyst’s estimate, only its statistical details. Unreliable estimates are excluded from the consensus.

The algorithms we use are very accurate, and are not concerned with how you arrived at your estimate, just the numbers.

Estimize was built to provide the market with an open data set that better represents the true expectations of the market. We don’t use a “give-to-get” model or charge for access to this platform as that would limit the influence of the data set.
