International Company Information

Find information on international companies by searching widely in a range of resources listed below - note what companies say about themselves in the media, and what analysts say about companies.

Private and small companies can be very difficult to find out about (particularly financial details) - use news sources to gather as much information as you can.

Passport - Search Tip

  • A predictive text function will help you identify the company or brand you want e.g. selecting the suggested McDonald's Corp will give better results than Mcdonalds. If you don't find a specific information for your company or brand, broader category reports may still provide useful information.
