In the wake of the financial crisis, credit managers today are more proactively using technology, big data, business intelligence and portfolio management in their credit risk assessments. Credit specialists need a transparent, coherent and global view of their customers. 

Providing comprehensive coverage of private companies across the world.
Our company reports are in comparable formats so you can use them for international benchmarking and financial analysis. We also have extensive coverage of public and private banks on Orbis Bank Focus.

What we offer...

Robust financial data

Corporate ownership structures
We show you how companies are linked. Using our products you can see the financial viability of the group, or parent, as well as the company you're assessing.
