The S&P Capital IQ platform has been freshly reviewed by Jinfo for 2017. Read about the enhancements that have been made to the sophisticated web-based platform and how the product continues to provide deep financial data and information on millions of companies, as well as data on markets, industries and people.


When choosing a premium platform for the global analysis of corporate, people and market data, idea generation, and workflow management, S&P Capital IQ is likely to be on your shortlist.

Excellent tools and workflow

S&P Capital IQ is a product of New York-based S&P Global, who specialise in financial information and analytics.

Described as a "single source for a powerful array of financial data, analytics and research", the product dives even deeper; covering information on private and public company executives, board members and investment professionals. 

Since Jinfo last reviewed S&P Capital IQ in 2015, regular product updates and enhancements to the user experience have been made, warranting further investigations.

Andrew Lucas, author of the 2017 report, explains:

"In Jinfo's view, the S&P Capital IQ platform provides an excellent set of tools and workflow capabilities for the analysis of corporate, people and market data."
