Financial-Information Companies Under-Performing Rest of Content Market: Another important study on the financial information services market, by information services research firm Outsell. Growth in the company, credit and financial-information industry remained relatively flat for the past year, according to the study. The total size of the segment, which covers the spectrum of financial-market-related data, reached about $19.4 billion last year, declining about 0.4 percent from the previous year. The study tracks 75 companies such as Bloomberg, Thomson Financial, Reuters, S&P’s, Experian, D&B, Equifax, and Dow Jones, among others.

“The study found that Bloomberg, Thomson Financial and Reuters remain in the top revenue producing spots for information providers, with Bloomberg growing by about 24 percent and Thomson growing by about 26 percent, largely attributed to its acquisition of Primark. Reuters’ financial-information units though reported only about 2 percent growth.”
