PHILADELPHIA–The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania announced today that Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS) has created the WRDS SEC Analytics Suite, allowing for researchers to effortlessly retrieve and export customized subsets of the most common SEC filing reports. WRDS is the leading, comprehensive, internet-based data research service used by academic, government, and corporate firms.

The WRDS SEC Analytics Suite allows for advanced data-mining – allowing you to parse and extract any entity reported to the SEC’s EDGAR database since 1994. WRDS SEC Analytics Suite is positioned for broad business usage from due diligence and forensic accounting to disclosure research and investment management.

“WRDS’ researchers can build custom-tailored data sets, searching across multiple entity filings in one easy process. Researchers also benefit from the powerful combination of being able to link their customized filings extract with prominent accounting and financial market databases, including Capital IQ’s Compustat, CRSP, Thomson-Reuters’ IBES, IVES’ Audit Analytics, and NYSE Euronext’s TAQ,” said Robert Zarazowski, WRDS Senior Director.
