The Underappreciated Power of Data Companies with Thomas Li, Co-Founder and CEO of Daloopa

The Underappreciated Power of Data Companies with Thomas Li, Co-Founder and CEO of Daloopa

My guest on the show today is Thomas Li, the co-founder and CEO of financial data company Daloopa. Daloopa is a private company that was founded by a group of former buy-side investment analysts who saw the opportunity to use technology to upgrade the research process at just about any type of investment firm; but with a specific focus on saving analysts and portfolio managers time. Just a few years into its journey, the company already has over 200 employees and has multiple offices around the world.

In this wide-ranging interview, Thomas and I discussed:

  • Where the original idea for Daloopa came from;

  • How he views the legacy data providers such as CapitalIQ and Bloomberg;

  • What Daloopa is doing to make the product a must-have versus a nice-to-have;

  • What AI means within the context of Daloopa; and

  • The importance of building a company that naturally generates a lot of cash
