How it helps you

Our financial strength partners are all experts in helping people assess companies. Each has a slightly different approach and methodology - giving you a range of views to use in your own analysis. 

Their models have specifically been designed to work with the financial data in our company databases. They are available within our databases such as Orbis and Oriana, and also within our Catalysts (Credit Catalyst and Procurement Catalyst) to help you score companies in our specialist platforms. 

They offer you:

  • Scores on 15 million companies - even small companies are scored
  • Metrics that you can compare across borders and industries
  • Alerts that monitor changes for you
  • Clear presentation for quick interpretation in a dashboard overview and more detailed insight in datasheets including the underlying ratios and historical data and trends
  • An immediate understanding of a company's strengths and weaknesses
