About this Database
NOTE: The economic situation has forced us to make changes to our Orbis access. The Orbis platform will not be available during the month of July. Also, as of July 1, Orbis data is no longer be available on the WRDS platform, or through the Amadeus, Bank Focus, ISIS, Osiris or Zephyr interfaces.
ORBIS is a global company database, produced by Bureau van Dijk, that is unique in its breadth of geographies and extent of companies covered as well as the availability of private company financial information (depending on the country in which the company is located.) Think of ORBIS when you want to:
• Get extensive data about a company including locations of subsidiaries
• Screen for companies based on geography, financial performance, industry, deals, ownership structure, number of employees, year of incorporation and other criteria
• Compare a company to its competitors along multiple dimensions.
