Tampa, FL, June 02, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- After much research and careful consideration, Benchmark International has incorporated the use of Capital IQ for the most up-to-date information on mergers and acquisitions activity. Capital IQ, owned by S&P Global Market Intelligence, is the industry leader in M&A data that is used by banks and brokers globally. This platform will give Benchmark International access to details concerning more past M&A transactions than any other source. Moreover, Capital IQ provides the best lists available for private equity funds.
Capital IQ also offers access to hundreds of investment bank industry reports. These reports are a good resource for neutral third-party assessments of future industry and market growth rates, which are key considerations for buyers when looking for the high-end of their offering prices. An added feature is that Capital IQ’s database can be accessed from the desktop or from a mobile device. This is crucially important for members of the Benchmark International team who are always on the go.
Managing Director Clinton Johnston, expressed his enthusiasm and discussed this new platform and why it was ultimately chosen. “We are very happy to start our new partnership with S&P’s Capital IQ this month. We selected this provider to be our partner after a very detailed investigatory process. We needed a product that was not only the best solution for our clients, but which was also licensed in the right manner for our business. S&P’s new enterprise-wide licensing model is perfect for Benchmark International as it allows us to put that power into both the desktop and cell phone of every employee across the business, ensuring that access to data causes no bottlenecks whether in the office or travelling the globe,” he explained. “Many software vendors have issues dealing with a highly mobile workforce like ours, spread over three continents, operating in in an environment in which we must push data down to the lowest level on a time critical basis in order to assure successful outcomes. The quality of Capital IQ has always been there but S&P’s new licensing model is really built for this type of flexibility and democratization of information.”
