99% of what is important in U.S. business must be filed at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
But much of what is filed is not very important.
SEC Info℠ helps you quickly find what is important to you.
Our Information is not just about Securities, it is business intelligence about public companies and their owners.
We are not the SEC and neither affiliated with nor endorsed by the SEC.
Our Users say we are much better...|
SEC Info℠ is not simply about finding SEC Filings,
which you can do at the SEC and other websites, albeit with more difficulty.
It is instead about extracting the useful Securities Information in SEC Filings and organizing it to make it easily accessible to you.
We do this in many ways, to save you time and effort.
SEC Filings by themselves are static stand-alone documents.
SEC Info’s artificial-intelligence parsing engine understands the content and context of SEC Filings, and it does two things:
It parses the content of Filings and, understanding context, updates our “entity” database, the most sophisticated SEC Filings database in the world.
It then “webifies” the Filings’ Documents, by adding billions of links, so that,
if you are reading a Document and encounter a reference to another Filing or to something in our database, you can click to get more information.
The database itself is what our site, essentially Our App, is built upon.
Most of the pages in Our App relate to information from our database, allowing views of data aggregated from many Filings.
Only a few pages handle the displaying of Filings’ Documents that have been “webified” by us.
Other sites allow you to see static Filings, but have no way to find information in them or get to related Documents.
Our goal is to save you time finding the information you want, and getting you quickly to useful information you may not otherwise know exists.
Having the database also allows us to offer Other Services to address your individual information needs.
We can provide personalized pages tailored to your unique situation, with customized queries and presentation formats.
We can also provide proprietary data sets, which you can import into your own database.
Please see Our Demos.
