Cons

S&P Capital IQ

  • Sources. In Bloomberg, when you click on a figure anywhere it leads you to the source. That is a great feature, as in finance everything has to be backed with the original source.
  • Cannot always find the needed information, the menu is too complex.

Alternatives Considered

S&P Capital IQ

We had Capital IQ in addition to Bloomberg. It was much easier for a new person to use Capital IQ than Bloomberg. The ease of use was a huge selling point for us. Yahoo finance on the other hand is free, but you cannot gather all the data you may need in one location like you can in Capital IQ.

Return on Investment

S&P Capital IQ

  • It provides a good source for an analyst in researching certain information relating to companies and industries that the organization is investing in, having a reliable source for this kind of information lets us avoid losses caused by inaccurate data.
  • Given that it allows analysts to search more efficiently and effectively, overtimes attributed to further research requirements are lessened hence contributing to cost savings.
