Key takeaways:

  1. Financial literacy is more important than ever. Data storytelling in finance & investing must be emotionless. Machine learning blurs out FUD and FOMO. It is beyond traditional quant. Data-backed interpretation of the current state is a foundation for human decision-making.
  2. Dealing with reporting for multiple stakeholders is a headache. Start with audience personas, system design, and reporting purpose (operational, analytical, executive one).
  3. Dynamic vs static reports. Static reports are satisfactory when you want to convey one message. Interactive reports give more flexibility for data exploration, including dynamic historical trendlines and what-if scenarios.
  4. Don’t show all raw data at once. Show high-level info as a starting point. Then jump to the context and more descriptive details.
