New York City, United States 03 Oct 2022
The CFA Institute Research Foundation, a research arm of CFA Institute that sponsors independent, in-depth research on investment management issues, and Calcbench, the leading interactive financial research firm for data intensive analysts, today announced a new partnership to provide CFA Institute members with instant and systematic access to all the data in financial statements. Through the Investment Data Alliance, members can now benefit from free access to as-filed 10-Ks, 10-Qs, earnings press releases, and more.
Through Calcbench’s platform or Excel Add-in, CFA Institute members now get data that’s true to financial statements, in line-item detail, all traceable back to the source. In addition, users will be able to search financial statements by topic (for example, share repurchase programs) or section (Risk Factors, Management Discussion & Analysis, and so forth) and can compare peer performance over time.
“We’re delighted to provide CFA Institute members with free access to the Calcbench platform,” said Bud Haslett, Executive Director of the CFA Institute Research Foundation. “Now members can get all the data in financial statements, including the details within the footnotes for free.”
