Company Profiles & Financials Sources

These databases include company profiles with financials/fundamentals, executive information, and more, and can be used to build a list of companies.

All of these databases have similar basic information and financials for public, U.S. companies, but their relative strengths are listed below:

  • FactSet
    • Analyzing financial data; ESG; searching filings, press releases, & call transcripts.
  • Capital IQ
    • Financials; detailed screening; people networks; filings, press releases & call transcripts.
  • D&B Hoovers
    • Easy to create lists of companies; establishment level data; IT products and vendors used & CRUSH IT strategy reports.
  • Orbis
    • Broad global coverage; good coverage of private companies' financials.
