The UK-based financial data provider Perfect Information (PI), which is owned by Centaur Media, has appointed DPC DATA to support its customers in the United States. DPC DATA Inc. is a provider of data-related outsourced services, and a publisher of municipal securities reference data and disclosure documents.
The partnership agreement follows the launch of Perfect Search, which aims to provide access to the Perfect Information repository of more than seven million company documents including annual and interim reports, shareholder filings, and international bond prospectuses and news, including all US corporate and SEC-filed documents.
“As we further our presence in the US, DPC DATA is a logical partner. We are both service-driven data providers and leaders in our realms. Our customer bases are very similar,” says Greg Simidian, Managing Director, Perfect Information. “With DPC DATA’s track record in outsourced services, the benefits are significant. We have gained increased capacity to satisfy the demands of our global marketplace, as well as a partner in new business development.”
DPC DATA’s staff in Fort Lee, New Jersey, coordinates with Perfect Information’s London and Hong Kong operations to provide an around-the-clock help desk. DPC DATA also provides on-site training for PI customers in North America for the full range of disclosure, analysis, forecasting and market data products offered by Perfect Information.
“Perfect Information works with the same companies as DPC DATA, and offers highly complementary data coverage in European and US corporate securities,” says Michael Ruvo, president of DPC DATA. “We understand the needs of people who analyze and structure securities. It simply makes sense for us to work together, serving customers and expanding Perfect Information’s reach into the United States.”
Established in 1991 and headquartered in London, Perfect Information, a subsidiary of the leading B2B media group Centaur Media, has over 60,000 contracted users. Products include PI Filings, PI Analysis, PI Research, PI Debt and PI Conferences.
