Global Financial Data adds Data for over 600 Insurance Companies

Global Financial Data has added price data on over 600 U.S. insurance companies covering the years 1928 and 1972. The data are over-the-counter quotes and provide the Bid, Ask and Average of the Bid and the Ask for each company. The data are end-of-the-month bids and asks and provide data on hundreds of insurance companies not available from any other vendor. Most insurance companies traded over-the-counter prior to the formation of the NASDAQ in 1972. Many insurance companies were small and operated in only a few states, or offered limited insurance coverage, so they were unable to meet the capitalization and other requirements of the New York Stock Exchange and the American Stock Exchange. This means that until now, this treasure trove of information on insurance stocks has been unavailable and thus neglected.

Now, this information is available to subscribers to Global Financial Data’s U.S. Stocks Database. The newly added data includes price data on almost 400 companies that were previously not included in the U.S. Stocks Database. Ever state within the United States is covered by these insurance companies. This data links up to almost 300 series that traded on the NASDAQ or on the NYSE or AMEX after 1972, providing more extensive and more complete data series to analyze long-term trends in the insurance industry. Several of these companies were included in S&P’s and Moody’s Insurance Indices that they calculated between the 1920s and the 1970s. The data is currently available to subscribers to the U.S. Stocks Database. Those who are not current subscribers, may want to add the U.S. Stocks to their subscription to access this unique set of data unavailable anywhere else.
