Thomson Reuters via WRDS

Thomson Reuters is a global provider of data, analysis and information tools. Thomson Financial Securities Data (TFSD) had been created in 1999 by the joining of The Investext Group, Securities Data Company and CDA/Spectrum. Thomson Reuters was formed when Thomson Financial merged with Reuters.

The Thomson Reuters databases on WRDS cover Mutual Funds Holdings, 13f Institutional Holdings, Insiders Filings containing transaction and holdings information filed with the SEC, and WRDS-Reuters DealScan, which has global commercial loan data.

Further information can be found on the WRDS website (see links below).
