Overall Satisfaction with S&P Capital IQ

SNL Financial is one of the best service providers I have ever used. The aggregate data on a complex industry and provide robust and detailed search capabilities, up-to-the-minute news coverage and excellent customer service. If I need a stat on a particular company or and industry trend, they have it. If I can't find the info, they have a friendly person to help me.
  • Exceptional customer service 24/7! They are always there and always give me exactly what I need usually within an hour or for larger research projects within 8 hours.
  • Extremely well-informed people on every level. They deal with complex and ever changing data with stellar expertise.
  • Always up, always accurate and they pay you if you find an error in their data. I have collected exactly twice in 15 years over thousands of companies and documents. It is a coupe to get a reward from SNL!
  • I have never been disappointed in their breadth or depth of information or their customer service. They are the best vendor I have ever used!
  • We use them every day and they make me look smart. How does it get better than that?
They provide very detailed information, that is industry specific. You cannot find a better provider for bank website data than SNL. The ease of customization on the website program is unparalleled.
Briefing books, current and historical financial data, current and historical institutional ownership and peer analytics; all fantastic.
If you are a casual investor and don't need in-depth information, then use any search engine. If you want the full meal deal, they are worth every penny you spend for them.

Using S&P Capital IQ

The service is easy to use and robust. If you can't find something send an email or make a call.
  • Accessing current and historical financial data
  • Identifying current and historical institutional owners
  • Peer analysis
  • Knowledge is power and they give us high velocity data.
  • They offer so many things that we just don't know about. We should do more training with them (which is free and easy).
[It's the] best ever.
