COFISEM’S 30th ANNIVERSARY
Founded in 1988, Cofisem is celebrating thirty years of existence. The firm, whose activity involves provision in several languages of fundamental information on listed companies, is renowned for its quality of service. Its customer base is made up of banks, online trading web sites, the press, accounting professionals and analysts. The constantly changing scope of listed companies monitored by Cofisem today amounts to more than 7,000 throughout the world, with particular focus on Europe and Africa.
Cofisem has continually developed to assist its customers: since its beginnings when it published its data in the form of hard-copy directories, then via CD-ROMs and later through XML feeds.
Today, it also distributes its data via Web services.
With the concern of meeting new requirements expressed by its customers, the firm is conducting in-depth restructuring of its database in order to enhance it with new information.
As a result, emphasis will be placed on data related to environmental and social governance, accompanied by reinforcement of the traditional fundamental financial aspects, with the introduction of more understandable and relevant business ratios in particular.
At the same time, two new services are set to be introduced in 2019 offering users the possibility of carrying out their own searches, both from the data and from source documents.
As such, Cofisem would be very interested to receive the wishes of potential users of such tools (to be sent to the address cofisem-data-research at cofisem.com), which would enable the firm to enhance its search engines with functions that it has not yet conceived.
Cofisem, a long-standing player in information on listed companies, is convinced that investment in listed shares is an excellent means of financing the economy and is happy to play its part in this business.
