About Bloomberg Intelligence
Companies are the backbone of the stock and bond markets. Bloomberg Intelligence (“BI”) conducts in-depth research on large and midsize companies to help stock and bond investors effectively evaluate those companies. They analyse the unique attributes of each business, how it competes against other companies in its industry and how the business strategies and successes translate into financial results. Their analysts also research the technology, regulation, litigation and economies that will shape the environment for these companies and the related industry impact.
BI research is a combination of written analysis accompanied by interactive charting and analytics created from company reported data as well as industry and government data. Analysts review, check and curate this data into comprehensive and logically arranged dashboards to support their own research and to provide Bloomberg Terminal users a platform to view and analyse the data as well.
