Financial and company information

About private company information

If a company is not listed on a stock exchange (i.e. a private company), it can be more difficult to find information about it because it is not legally required to disclose as much financial information as publicly listed companies are.

That said, Library Services provides access to several databases with good coverage of private companies.

Key databases with private company information

For access to CB Insights, contact the Business Library at

Accessing private company information

Most resources use your usual City email address. Some resources need different login details. These are listed in Business Library Moodle 2023-2024. If you cannot access this page, please for details. Some financial resources are only available on specific bookable PCs.

You can use this information for:

  • Coursework 
  • Projects 
  • Interview prep

Information gathered from City Library databases must not be used for commercial purposes, including for placements.
