Premium Shareholders

What is it?

We are introducing our first release of Premium Shareholders.

Before, Shareholders data was only available for US tickers. We built it ourselves with publicly available SEC filings. Now, we also offer a new Shareholders dataset, which covers most tickers globally, and which is based on data licensed from Refinitiv

Premium Shareholders include:

  • More tickers: Most tickers on Sentieo are covered (over 87k, breakdown by region below)
  • More owners: Premium Shareholders covers over 560k owners globally. This includes
    • Owners from outside of the US, who are not required to disclose to the SEC their US holdings, and their ownership inside and outside of the US are also covered; 
    • Additional owners such as Hedge Funds and non-US Mutual Funds are also fully covered (previously, full Mutual Funds coverage was limited to US funds).
  • More relevant data: all owners are now categorised by type and subtype, giving insight into their nature and investment style (see detailed list below).
  • Longer history: US data now goes as far back as 1997 (previously: 2014). Non-US data history varies by country (some markets in Asia go back to 1999, but some in Eastern Europe start in 2005).
