EMIS Intelligence, formerly ISI Emerging Markets, has traditionally been a great resource for exploring emerging markets. Produced by Euromoney Institutional Investor, it aggregates news, reports, statistics and company information from a wide range of providers. While the focus remains primarily on emerging markets, their recent redesign allows researchers to more easily examine world or global markets, as well as giving them the ability to find information on developed markets. While one still has the option to drill into a specific country, choosing a specific country is no longer required, making it easier to search across multiple countries and regions of interest.
The EMIS Intelligence Search page can be somewhat overwhelming because there are so many options to limit and refine your search. This example shows looking for material on armored vehicles, and limiting the results to research reports using the Publication Type filter.
Once you have run the search, you can also use the Filter options on the left-hand side of the results page to further limit by country, language and more. In the example below, two filters, Country and Publication were used to narrow search results..
Alternatively, you can use the Reports tab to explore the reports that are available. When you select the Reports tab, you will note that Analysis/Research, Ratings Analysis, News Analysis, and Analytical Commentary are automatically checked under the Publication Types list in the Filter By column.
Use the Publications Tab to find reports by a specific provider. For example, to find EIU (Economist Intelligence Unit) Industry Reports covering the automotive, energy, healthcare, consumer goods, financial services and telecom sectors, select EIU Industry Reports from the publications list.
These reports cover both developing and developed markets, and include tables that are exportable to Excel, as shown in this example of telecom data from Austria.
