Bank data analysis
100% data accuracy guarantee Tired of banking data that
misses the mark?

Data quality and accuracy can be major issues with other financial information providers, but SNL ushers in a new standard of quality for worldwide bank analysis. We gather data from multiple sources, scrub it for accuracy, standardize it on our interactive platform, and publish it faster than any other provider. Plus, SNL is the only provider with a 100% accuracy guarantee. If you find an error, or if our data's out of date, we'll send you a U.S. $50 reward (or local equivalent). Our typical turnaround for earnings releases is just 8 hours!

Standardized banking data Is your data getting lost in translation?

Bank analysis across different countries isn't easy. You face numerous languages, currencies, incompatible standards and different sources. SNL Financial provides a single, standardized source for accurate data on 30,000 financial institutions and publishes translated versions of all company financials. No more manual work by risk analysts around currency, reporting frequencies, translation, corporate structures or incompatible standards. Making meaningful apples-to-apples peer comparisons is now simple.
