The evolution of dividend forecasting

From individual investors to major investment banks

Woodseer began as a UK-focussed financial product with a set of tools and curated data, providing unique insights to sophisticated private investors.

The process for researching and understanding how company financials impact dividend declarations lead us to develop a codified system for forecasting dividends automatically across a large data set of corporate actions.

This lead to a pivot towards the financial services industry and in 2017 we launched Woodseer as a B2B product.

The compelling innovation then was applying an automated algorithm to a large dataset of securities and identify patterns within historical dividend data which allowed us to produce accurate forecasts.
