Home > About Us

S&P Capital IQ and SNL is the result of the McGraw Hill Financial acquisition of SNL Financial in September 2015.

  • SNL Financial

    was originally founded as "S&L Securities" in New Jersey in 1987 with an initial focus on the savings and loan industry. NJ 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." Our universe soon grew well beyond savings & loans to the various business sectors we cover today: banking, financial services, insurance, real estate, energy, media/communications and metals & mining.

    Since our founding, we have 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, we have infused four 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 S&P Capital IQ and SNL for the best possible information on the companies in our sectors.

  • SNL Financial's global reach spans 23 cities worldwide, with an ever-expanding workforce of over 3,000 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.
