Monday, January 15th, 2018

Ford Library is pleased to announce the availability of five new business and finance research resources from Bureau van Dijk, an information provider with a truly global scope and focus.  These resources offer key business and financial data via standalone web sites (ORBIS and ZEPHYR), and via the Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS) data portal.

Each resource is described briefly below with a link for access available to all Duke students, faculty, and staff.

AMADEUS via WRDS
Amadeus contains comprehensive information on around 21 million companies across Europe, with a focus on private companies. Data includes company financials, financial strength indicators, ownership data, detailed corporate structures, and stock prices.

ORBIS Bank Focus via WRDS
Information on public and private banks worldwide. This searchable database includes bank ratings reports, country risk ratings reports, news, and detailed ownership information and bank structures.

OSIRIS via WRDS
A comprehensive database of listed corporates, banks and insurance companies around the world. In addition to the income statement, balance sheet, cash flow and ratios it contains news, ownership, ratings, earnings estimates and stock data. Contains data on approximately 80,000 companies.

ORBIS
ORBIS covers over 200 million companies worldwide, with an emphasis on private company information, integrating information held across BvDEP’s company information product range. ORBIS provides global standard report formats as well as descriptive information and company financials, along with news, market research, ratings and country reports, scanned reports, ownership and M&A data.

Zephyr
Zephyr contains M&A, IPO and venture capital deal data with links to detailed company financial information. It has information on approximately 1.6 million transactions with over 100,000 being added annually.

Ford Library will offer two one-hour training classes on February 7th and February 8th for Fuqua students, faculty, and staff in support of these new resources.  Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for coming details on times and locations for the classes.

COMING SOON: For advanced users interested in directly querying and manipulating data in the statistical analysis software of their choice, or via other programming languages, we will provide access to a collection of ORBIS source data files in SQL and TXT formats. These source data files, “ORBIS Historical”, will focus on financial and historical ownership information from the ORBIS database.
