Aperçu général

(Cette page produit est en cours de traduction, nous vous prions de bien vouloir nous excuser pour la gêne occasionnée)

Orbis Bank Focus is a database of banks worldwide. It currently contains detailed information on 33,000 banks (25,000 US and 8,000 Non US). We source the information from a combination of annual reports, information providers and regulatory sources.

Orbis Bank Focus coverage  is increasing by around 1,000 banks a month to reach a coverage of 12,700 active Non US Banks by end of 2016 with 5 years’ history for listed banks and 3 years’ for unlisted.


What makes Orbis Bank Focus unique?

Orbis Bank Focus provides ‘as reported’ financial items available both in English and local languages, local GAAP and IFRS formats whenever available. For example, the ‘as reported’ format of US banks includes more than 3,000 line items. It also covers new types of institutions such as US Credit Unions and integrates new data sets such as credit default swaps (CDS). 
The Global Detailed format in Orbis Bank Focus has been designed by experts in credit, risk and corporate finance - ADEVA Partners - and includes more than 500 line items.  

A new set of ratios is structured in the CAMELS approach that is used by regulators to rate a bank’s overall condition. 
It's the most detailed and contemporary format available and is ideal for cross-country comparison. It’s constantly updated with the latest accounting disclosures, including:
  • Basel III CET1
  • transition vs fully loaded regulatory requirements
  • total loss absorbing capacity
  • minimum requirement for own funds and eligible capital
  • net stable funding
  • holdco double leverage
  • market risk e.g. stress VaR, interest rate risk, FX risk
  • derivative netting and collateral

Annual report data is input with amounts tagged to figures in the source document, so it’s easy to trace figures back to source (this functionality also works within the Excel Add-in). All numbers will be input separately – not as aggregated figures – for more accurate results.  

We've been working on this project for a significant time, and sourced partners who can help make a robust and contemporary solution. The new templates have been developed by leading experts in training bank analysts. They have been created post financial crisis for more current research and analysis, and include the latest regulatory requirements (TLAC, MREL). The Orbis Bank Focus database will develop considerably over 2016 as more content is added and it’s delivered via a new and contemporary user interface.

And we're investing significant resources into making Orbis Bank Focus - it will have key data benefits over alternatives as it links with Bureau van Dijk’s other extensive datasets including: 
  • ownership
  • bank structures
  • directors
  • AML documents.
You can access the information on Orbis Banks via our usual interface, our Add-ins or via a data feed delivered by API or a custom flat file. So it can easily be incorporated into existing models and workflow tools. 

What about data quality? 

We've applied more than 200 validation controls to the data to make sure it reaches the highest quality standards. A quality management team checks data on an entity by entity basis and to provide specialist technical assistance to the customer support and sales teams. The templates, and all sourced data, are regularly reviewed and updated with the latest regulatory requirements.
