Library Services are pleased to announce that we now have access to Audit Analytics: Corporate and Legal through the WRDS Platform. Audit Analytics is a company intelligence tool useful for topics like investments, accounting, insurance, law, and regulatory issues. We already have the sister dataset to this product, Audit Analytics: Audit and Compliance, which you can use to investigate how firms have been audited, changes in company directors and other officers, and look at things like auditor fees, financial restatements and non-timely filings. This new product gives us a wealth of data on bankruptcies, SEC comment letters, federal litigation, IPOs, mergers and acquisitions data, and more, including the hot topic of shareholder activism.
We are very happy to be able to bring you comprehensive data in this important area for our accounting and finance students. To access WRDS datasets, click ‘Register’ on the WRDS homepage. Register using your City email address. Under ‘User type’, postgraduate and undergraduate students should select ‘Students (Masters/Undergrad).’ Follow the instructions in the email to finish setting up your account, which will be approved within 2 working days.
