Q.
Alternatives to Bloomberg

What databases can I use that have much of the same data and functionality as the Bloomberg terminal?


A.

When data download limits on the Bloomberg terminals have been reached and/or to avoid non-compliance with the Bloomberg Terminal conditions or bypass API limits, you can check out these alternatives:

  • Capital IQ: Company and markets data. Excel plug-in available
  • LSEG Workspace: Company and markets data. Excel plug-in available
  • Datastream: fast downloads of market data.
  • Factset: Company and markets data. Desktop client available by request.
  • Alpha Vantage: Provides free APIs for market data.
