How we help

Navigation short description:

Harness the power of corporate group information

We are masters of corporate ownership. Our solutions can help you understand complex corporate groups in seconds and show you:

  • where ultimate owners are based – globally and domestically, to help you find decision makers
  • if two companies/directors are linked to each other
  • a company’s “family” to help you find and track opportunities across corporate groups and linked companies

Strategic analysis and planning

With global, regional and domestic coverage, and comparable data, our solutions can help improve your strategy and planning.

Our products can help you to:

Understand a new market or region
Our heat maps and pivot analyses give you instant visuals on the corporate landscape – by size, activity, location etc. - wherever you’re researching.

Compare peer companies
Our software helps you identify peers and then run sophisticated peer analyses.

Use alongside your Office tools
Our contemporary add-ins mean you can use our solutions to seamlessly populate your templates in Excel or PowerPoint.

Understand corporate ownership
Our Ownership Explorer tool helps you instantly visualize direct and indirect ownership. You can create filters and use colors to analyze structures.

Strategic searching for business development

We make creating strategic searches easy. You can combine as many search steps as you would like to find companies with very specific profiles, so, you can find companies:

  • with consistent growth rates
  • with new owners
  • that are private equity backed and likely to have expansion plans
  • with slowing growth or negative growth
  • that deliver very specific services or products

You can also use Boolean logic to create 'and'/'or' searches. 

And once you’ve identified a group of companies by your chosen profiles you can set alerts to see when new companies join your group.

Get sales triggers via sophisticated alerts

Our products will watch sets of companies for you and alert you to changes that may create, or remove, an opportunity for you. These include:

  • new financials filed
  • a change in management
  • a change in ownership or rumor of M&A activity
  • news about a company – you can filter for just negative news
  • a change in a company’s financial strength – positive or negative
  • an office move
  • a change of status (active/inactive/rescue plan etc.)
  • that a company now fulfils, or no longer fulfils, a profile you’ve createdA
