The information GF Data Resources works with is provided by private equity groups. Submissions are blind, confidential, and sent in large batches, thereby preventing the identification of individual deals or the participating equity firms. Reports are then generated on a semi-annual — soon to be quarterly — basis.
- Private equity groups provide transaction data via a proprietary on-line utility developed and operated by an independent technology application provider.
- Data delivery is encrypted to protect the data as it travels to our server.
- Each deal is categorized by its six-digit code under the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS).
- Completed reports drill down to the finest level of detail at which individual transactions remain anonymous (e.g., there must be at least three deals in an NAICS subcategory for GF Data Resources to report at the subcategory level).
