Our data

Detailed data

Refinitiv’s quantitative analytics capabilities provide pre-defined or customized analytics calculations to internal and external customers as a fully managed service.

The deeper the data, the more confidence you can have in your decisions. We offer the industry’s most comprehensive market data, including real-time and historical data going back 120+ years. Refinitiv provides, Company fundamentals, I/B/E/S Estimates and Guidance, StarMine analytics, Company Filings, Ownership and ESG data.

Point-in-time data

As the only dataset to include all reported values, timestamped to the moment that they were made available to the market, Point-in-Time data is unique in showing you exactly what information was available and when. This allows quants to backtest against real conditions – eliminating look-ahead, removing the need for inaccurate lag assumptions, and allowing for more accurate assignment to groupings. This ultimately provides more accurate results, and a truer analysis of how a portfolio or strategy would have performed.

With two Point-in-Time fundamentals databases, and the market’s only Point-in-Time estimates data, we offer the industry’s most comprehensive offering of Point-in-Time data. Every datapoint is regularly updated, and has the high standard of accuracy you expect from Refinitiv.

Alternative data

Establishing itself as the vital other side of the fundamental data coin, alternative data is a crucial counterpart to high quality fundamental data. Our partnership with BattleFin makes the combination of alternative and fundamental data easier. The Refinitiv suite of fundamental data can be found on BattleFin Ensemble and we are continuing to add 3rd party alternative data to Refinitiv Quantitative Analytics.
