This guide was created to help students locate business data for finance and accounting.

What to Expect When Searching for Company Financial Data?

Company financial information is readily available when companies are publicly traded. Regulations from the Securities and Exchange Commission SEC ensure that public companies disclose their financial data. Because privately held companies are not subject to the same rules as publicly traded companies, there is usually far less financial information available. 

The Publicly Traded page will provide search tips on which library resources are best for publicly traded companies and The Privately Held page which will contain some data for privately held companies. They are resources available to you as current Pepperdine students.
