About Us

We developed the most complete and structured database for Italian SIM. This unique wealth of information captures the main balance sheet ratios for the Italian SIM sector combining each company financial statements for the period 2010-2013.

At the end of each fiscal year, the database is automatically updated with the financial statements of the following year.

We have created a business intelligence service for the benchmarking of financial and economic performance accessible through SimView.it, a web platform. SimView.it operates a subscription-based service for institutional investors.

Customers can single out specific company performance and obtain relative value positioning to its peers.
