Our Vision

Global Financial Data's goal is to provide the most comprehensive historical economic and financial database available anywhere. GFD specializes in providing Financial and Economic Data that extends from the 1000s to present—beyond what traditional data vendors provide. For over twenty-five years Global Financial Data has been accumulating and transcribing rare data sources into research-quality databases. While we distribute the current market data from traditional data feeds we also offer the historical data that are not available from these common electronic sources. The data we provide have been compiled from original source documents including academic journals, newspapers, periodicals, books and numerous other archival sources. GFD has produced continuous chain-linked data sets by appending the current data series with the historical data which have been verified, cross-referenced and transcribed prior to their inclusion in any GFDatabase.

We have built our reputation on building complete, clean, accurate Databases that are used to support all types of internal, commercial and academic analysis. Over the years, thousands of analysts from around the world have used our data for building superior models, making attractive investment presentations and displays, formulating superior investment strategies and making stronger investment decisions, creating stunning charts and graphs, as well as, the authoring of reports, newsletters, books and white papers.

Our comprehensive financial databases span global markets offering data never before compiled into an electronic format. We create and generate our own proprietary data series while we continue to investigate new sources and extend existing series whenever possible. GFD supports full data transparency to enable our users to verify financial data points, tracing them back to the original source documents. GFD is the original supplier of complete historical data.
