About Us | SNL Financial LC
Home > About Us

SNL is the single best source for financial information on business sectors critical to the global economy.

  • SNL Financial

    collects, standardizes and disseminates all relevant corporate, financial, market and M&A data — plus news and analysis — for the industries we cover: banking, financial services, insurance, real estate, energy, media/communications and metals & mining.

    SNL Financial was originally founded as "S&L Securities" in New Jersey in 1987 with an initial focus on the savings and loan industry. But state law would not permit the incorporation of a non-bank with "S&L" in the official company name. So we replaced the "&" with an "N" to create "SNL." And our universe soon expanded well beyond savings & loans to the various business sectors we cover today.

    Since our founding, SNL has continuously expanded our global operations, as well as the scope and depth of our coverage and products — all without compromising the standards of quality and customer service that drive our success. Throughout our organization, SNL has infused 4 core tenets — Accuracy, Relevance, Completeness and Timeliness — and we stand behind our published information with a unique Accuracy Guarantee.

    As a result, leading investment banks, investment managers, corporate executives, ratings agencies, government agencies, consulting firms, law firms and media such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Washington Post, Forbes and Fortune rely on SNL Financial for the best possible information on the companies in our sectors.

  • SNL Financial's global reach spans 20 cities worldwide, with an ever-expanding workforce of nearly 2,600 employees. Corporate headquarters are in Charlottesville, Virginia, home of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and the University of Virginia. Other locations include New York, London, Hong Kong and Perth.
