Overview

Orbis has information on over 275 million companies across the globe. It’s the resource for company data. And we make it simple to compare companies internationally. Use Orbis to find, analyse and compare companies for better decision making and increased efficiency. 

We go further than just providing information, we carefully capture a wide variety of information, then we treat, append and standardise it to make it richer, more powerful and easier to interrogate. In fact, we capture and treat data from almost 160 separate providers, and hundreds of our own sources, to create Orbis.

Who's the owner?

We are masters of corporate ownership and the go-to resource for beneficial ownership. 

Our corporate trees reveal the ownership of your potential and existing business partners and third-party associates, including the beneficial owners, so you can review their corporate group as a whole and check it for adverse news as well as PEPs and Sanctions. 

We can even show you indirect links from companies to sanctioned entities.
