GFD Data Extensions
Alternative Historical Financial Data
GFD delves deep.
We use original records to extend our time series back to inception
Traditional vendors are limited by the automated data feeds delivered by exchanges and other third-party sources.
Beginning with hand-recorded documents from monasteries and continuing through the centuries of publications that followed, we have scoured libraries and archives from around the world. These historical records have now been electronically digitized and appended to the current sources to provide uninterrupted, continuous service – ending in daily close data. We have done decades of research to provide you with centuries of financial content. What insight will you uncover?
