Creditsafe Database now includes immediate insight on 90% of South American Companies

Creditsafe USA, the global business intelligence experts, has announced that it has extended its global database to include information on private and public companies in Argentina and Chile.

Argentina and Chile represent over 20% of the South American economy and $54.1 billion in two-way trade with the US. Nonetheless, the economies of these two countries are currently headed in different directions with Argentina marked by a shrinking economy and Chile’s economy expected to grow over 4% this year.

“Anyone looking for business clarity in a complex region can find solace in knowing that by using Creditsafe’s global business intelligence, they’ll now have one source of information on the companies that make up 90% of the South American economies,” said Matthew Debbage, CEO of Creditsafe Asia and Americas.

In addition to Argentina and Chile, Creditsafe already has comprehensive business data for companies in Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, and Ecuador. Specifically for Argentina and Chile, Creditsafe provides customers with immediate online intelligence for many aspects of a company’s key information including company name/address, financial, industry code/description, Negative data, Payment behavior, shareholder information, and group structure.

“With data now available instantly on companies in these countries, we provide unrivalled access to insight on South American companies,” said Debbage. “I try to avoid hyperbolic language, but no one else comes close to providing data-rich business intelligence on companies throughout the region.”
