To help alternative asset professionals conduct better company searches we have completely reclassified how we are categorizing businesses, and hve updated over 220,000 portfolio companies with more granular, in-depth information.

NEW: Introducing Verticals
Verticals are markets that involve a group of companies that can operate across multiple industries. Examples of verticals include AI, big data, blockchain, e-commerce, fintech, Internet of Things (IoT) and social media.

As part of Preqin Pro’s most recent update, customers can now search our transactional and portfolio company database using more than 50 industry verticals. Firms operating in newer or niche industries are now easily and quickly identifiable within Preqin Pro, removing the manual process to extract this information.

UPDATE: Industries
We have also added more than 40 industry sub-categories, taking the total unique, searchable industries to over 220. In conjunction, many industries were reclassified to remove ambiguity and inconsistency, as well as to better reflect the modern economy.

Highlights include:

  • New Primary Industry Tree and Sub-Industries: See here for details on the changes.
  • Industry Reclassifications: We removed ambiguity from industry trees and made all asset classes consistent across Preqin Pro.
