Data really is in our DNA. At Bureau van Dijk, a Moody's Analytics company, providing our customers with the best quality data, is our most important objective. We have unique experience in the information world. Data defines who we are and what we do. Our dedication to quality means we won’t tolerate unreliable data. We are committed to certain standards, providing the best breadth and depth of information in the market.
We enhance company information with specific proprietary data sets that are unique to us:
Our teams of researchers and journalists monitor deal activity worldwide. We collect information on deals and rumors and create links to the financial information we hold on our products.
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.
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.
Provided by 7 independent companies, all experts in their fields, we have models that have been designed to work with our data to help you assess companies' financial strength and probability of default.
