As the research arm of Bloomberg News, we collect and host data on 100+ industries and 4,000+ companies for a wide range of clients. We also give them context for the data through independent analysis from 130 experts in a wide range of subjects – including Washington, litigation, credit and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data. They help our clients see the hidden factors that influence their worlds, and how to understand current and historical trends.

I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you as well. I think its been incredibly tough for me to deal with learning that I have dyslexia and navigating what this means for me in terms of my career and it has at times really affected my confidence but I am really grateful to you and Employability because its nice to know people care about people like myself.
