The Team:

Company Financials is responsible for the data management of company and broker disclosed fundamentals data through the disclosure life cycle for a company, from broker estimates, consensus building, analyst recommendations, to the company reporting its first financials through the IPO process all the way to the quarterly reporting process from earnings to preliminary results to audited full financial results. The teams are organized with a focus on industries, and cover data ranging from the primary financial statements to product and geographic business segments, including the most critical revenue drivers. The group possesses a deep understanding of market disclosure patterns to source unique, value-added content while leveraging technology to acquire and process available information in a timely fashion. This aggregated, cleansed, and normalized data fuels a variety of key functions and enterprise products, supports News, and enables our clients to make well-informed investment decisions. The flagship {MODL} application is a tangible illustration of the power of the fundamentals data and the earnings estimates data coming together in a continuous time series to help our clients analyze companies. More than 320,000 business leaders rely on the real time financial information available on the Bloomberg Professional Service. Our products are fueled by powerful information.
