About this Database

Provides financial data and corporate filings for publicly listed companies around the globe. Reports range in format, from summaries, to standardised reports, to raw data.

Osiris has companies' financials in various formats so one can can look at individual companies in depth as well as compare companies across borders. Companies, banks and insurance companies all have their own detailed formats that account for variations in their financial structures. The financial reports range from summaries, to standardised reports, to raw data.

One can see how a financial item is derived from the more detailed accounts. Osiris also includes accounts as they were originally filed or presented in companies' annual reports.

Access is also available via WRDS. Use the Bureau van Dijk link within WRDS under Current Subscriptions and then navigate to the database (also available to Harvard users and authorized Baker visitors).
