Private Company Information

What is 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.

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. 

How do I access it?

Most resources use your usual City username and password. Some resources need different login details. These are listed in Business Library Moodle 2021-2022. If you cannot access this page, please for details. A few financial resources are only available on specific bookable PCs.
