Easy Data Download
Nikkei has improved the usability of FinancialQUEST 2.0; databases are structured into Corporate Information, Stock & Debenture, Commodities and Economics to provide easy navigation and to ensure that you find the data you need as quickly as possible.
Text Search Function
The text search function enables you to find the companies and data attributes that you are looking for at ease. Searching for a whole list of companies is made easier too; you can highlight multiple companies or entire industrial sectors by conditioning search and data screening.
Detailed Search Function
The detailed search function allows you to control and filter by exact criteria, turning FinancialQUEST into one of the most powerful data search applications available and enabling you to combine data from separate NEEDS databases, for instance, corporate fundamentals analysis with quantitative equity analysis.
Improved Efficiency
Search conditions can now be saved and loaded, enabling you to repeat the same search task without re-selecting the search conditions. You also have the ability to choose the layout of the data output, which enables you to align the data to your existing spreadsheets, saving you valuable time. In addition, the MS Excel export option enables you to easily integrate the data into your existing spreadsheets; further increasing efficiency.
Corporate Security
FinancialQUEST 2.0 software runs inside Internet Explorer using the latest .NET technology. No installation or specialised IT infrastructure is required and the software runs well on corporate LAN environments. Because FinancialQUEST is web based, it can be accessed from anywhere in the world, allowing access to the data you need while on the move.
