LONDON. Users of Dow Jones Factiva can now access Oxford Business Group’s full range of research on the 35-plus emerging economies it covers, following a distribution agreement between the two firms.

Requiring little in the way of introduction, Dow Jones Factiva is a highly regarded global news database of nearly 33,000 premium sources, including licensed publications, influential websites, blogs, images and videos, many of which are not available on the free web.

Under the agreement, its subscribers can now instantly access OBG’s extensive range of reports, economic updates, Global Platform videos and Editors’ blogs via the Factiva database.

Andrew Jeffreys, OBG’s CEO, said that the partnership with Dow Jones Factiva represented both a major milestone and an exciting new era for the Group, extending its reach to a critical and sizeable set of new readers.

Dow Jones Factiva offers comprehensive content to an extensive list of clients, many of whom are keen to discover more about the emerging economies in which Oxford Business Group operates,” he said. “I’m delighted that our research tools will now be accessible via Factiva’s database and have no doubt that they will quickly become an essential resource for its subscribers, complementing the powerful decision-making solutions already available there.”

Marc-André de Blois, OBG’s Director of PR and Video Content, also welcomed the new agreement, adding that Factiva’s intelligent, customisable search tools would help its readers obtain the accurate and up-to-date information on emerging economies provided by the Group quickly and effortlessly.

We know that business leaders often find it challenging to access and verify the intelligence they require on emerging markets in order to make their investment decisions,” he said. “Oxford Business Group prides itself on the pivotal part it plays in filling those information vacuums by offering detailed, reliable data and analysis on the growing list of markets it covers.”

OBG has now signed agreements to share its research products with four business intelligence providers, namely: Dow Jones Factiva; LexisNexis; Bloomberg; and Thomson Reuters. The partnerships have significantly extended the Group’s international reach, making its research tools available to almost 1.7 million new readers.

The total number of reports distributed worldwide by OBG annually currently stands at more than 5 million – a figure verified by Deloitte and audited by the professional services firm annually. Data shows that 354, or almost 71%, of the firms on the Global Fortune 500 list subscribe to OBG’s reports.
