In this article, you will learn about the companies included in Benchmark’s database.
Datamaran’s company database includes over 8,000 companies worldwide, based on the largest market capitalization.
The company database is built to ensure representative coverage for all industries across developed and emerging market areas globally. We also regularly monitor our coverage of the main stock indexes, including market cap indices (e.g. S&P 500, FTSE 100, others) and sustainability indices (e.g. DJSI, FTSE4Good, others).
Furthermore, we continuously enrich and expand our database based on specific client needs. For instance, our database covers private companies, as well as smaller cap companies. In order to be added into the database, a company’s reports must be readable by the machine (i.e. contain narrative regarding non-financial issues) and comprised of at least 10 full pages of text (in order to maintain consistency of length and allow enough content to be analyzed).
This database is also used in the Search module for both the “Reports” and “Companies” tabs.
