Morningstar Launches Interactive "Notebooks" to Extend Access to Data and Analytics Visualizations


CHICAGO, Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ahead of the annual Morningstar Investment Conference, Morningstar, Inc. (Nasdaq: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, today announced a new analytics capability in Morningstar Direct coupling multi-faceted data sets with automated analysis to drive new insights that were previously challenging to draw out. Morningstar is accelerating the pace of interactive analytics and new research released in Morningstar Direct delivered through Notebooks, enabling investors' access to new diversity, ownership and performance insights.

"Morningstar was built on the idea that investors need access to data and research to make better informed financial decisions. As the available data has skyrocketed, so has pressure for financial professionals to harness and analyze it to help their clients and build new investment products," said Frannie Besztery, head of Morningstar Direct. "Existing Morningstar Notebooks have been well-received by clients, and we're excited to create the ability for users to code, implement, and share their own Notebooks on Morningstar Direct."

Financial professionals can use Notebooks to bring data to life in everyday research, whether it's to help analyze managers, build portfolios, or identify new sources of risk that otherwise they wouldn't have seen. Five individual Notebooks are currently available to users of Morningstar Direct today, and three additional datasets will be released via Notebooks by the end of 2021. The new data sets featured include: 

Later this year, Morningstar Direct users will be able to pilot the initial release of Analytics Lab, where they will be able to develop their own custom analytics and models. Analytics Lab is a hosted development environment that seamlessly combines Morningstar's expansive data sets and the power of Python's data science capabilities. Financial professionals, including data scientists, financial engineers and quantitative analysts, will be able to discover, analyze and engage with Morningstar's data ecosystem in powerful new ways.
