The Trading Room at Bush House enables King’s Business School students to access computer terminals which contain both the Bloomberg Professional Services database and the Refinitiv Eikon database. These two databases are widely used by finance professionals and provide real-time financial market data, news, price quotes, and messaging across proprietary networks.
This facility gives current students unrivalled access to market data and demonstrates the commitment of the Business School to provide the highest quality facilities to our students.
King’s Business School students have access to the WRDS online platform which includes many databases including BoardEx, CRSP, Eventus, Mergent, Option Metrics, IBES, Refinitiv data (Insiders, Institutional (13F) holdings, Lipper Hedge Fund, Mutual Fund Holdings, SDC, ESG), and Standard & Poors data (Compustat, Capital IQ).
In addition, the School subscribes to Bureau Van Dyk databases (Fame and Orbis), Macrobond, Proxy Insight, Statista, WARC, and WIND.
For King’s College London faculty and students, instructions on how to access the above databases are available on the internal KEATS database webpage.
