We're experts in company information
Our strength is in combining data sources and creating links between them. We supplement, and link, the corporate ownership and contact information we receive from our IPs with our own research, and integrate our own M&A data, creating reciprocal links between deals and company financials.
These are some of our areas of expertise:
We have detailed information on listed companies, but our private company coverage is unrivalled
. Over 99% of the companies we have information for are privately owned. We have regional and international coverage.
We have information on over 70,000 listed and major unlisted and delisted companies worldwide.
Bankscope over 30,000 banks worldwide
Isis over 12,000 insurance companies
M&A deals and rumours
Zephyr has information on deals and rumours, with editorial, for deals worldwide.
Proprietary BvD information
Our teams of researchers and journalists monitor deal activity worldwide. We collect information on deals and rumours and create links to the financial information we hold on our products.
Corporate ownership information and company hierarchies
Our corporate ownership information is becoming increasingly important to our customers’ research processes. When we were initially developing our international products, it became clear that there was no viable source of pan-European, or international, company ownership information. We decided to merge and link the information from our IPs, and complement this with our own research.
This has now become an important part of our offering and a significant operation. Our bespoke research includes many sources such as local stock exchanges, newswires, companies’ reports and accounts and direct contact with the companies themselves. We show very detailed, direct and indirect, ownership information, a company’s level of independence in relation to its shareholders plus the global and domestic ultimate owners. Our company hierarchies
are widely used across a number of business functions and particularly valuable for anti-money laundering to research beneficial ownership.
We have proprietary research on companies’ activities, history, the countries they operate in and their main products and services, for approaching one million companies around the world.
Directors and contacts
We research and supplement information on the contacts we get from our IPs - directors, executives, shareholders and advisors - to create a global database of individuals associated with companies.
