FAME (Financial Analysis Made Easy) contains financial information on millions of UK companies. It can be used to track down certain types of company working within a geographical area, for example, companies working with steel based in Wales. This can be useful if you need to identify companies to work with or approach for information. The database can give information useful for students preparing for job applications as it gives details of employee numbers, financial status, directors, related companies, etc.
A guide is available in Blackboard.
