Introducing… BMI from FitchConnect


FitchConnect’s BMI service is one of our favourite resources for industry and country data and analysis. 

Industry and sector reports

To access the sector research, ensure that you are on the top-level tab for ‘BMI’.

Accessing BMI

For a comprehensive listing of industries covered, click on the ‘Industries’ sub-heading and browse…

BMI’s industry coverage

Selecting an industry from this menu will take you to the industry homepage where you can either use the search function, head directly to analysis on specific countries or use the filters on the left to browse to the content you require.

Country risk reports

Country risk reports can be accessed in a similar way to industry content. Simply select the ‘Country Risk’ option from the Fitch homepage to access the main dashboard. Either search all country content, select an individual country from the dropdown menu on the right or browse content via the menus on the left.

Country risk dashboard in BMI

Each country has its own homepage with key information and useful tabs where you can navigate easily to different kinds of content. For documents, including country risk reports, regional and FX analysis, use the ‘Reports’ option. If you’re interested in your country’s position in the Risk Index, you can find there here too.

Data and forecasts

If your country or industry research is data-driven, head straight to the ‘Fundamental Data & Analytics’ page from the Fitch homepage and select ‘Data Tools’. The option for ‘Bulk Data Export’ allows you to source the data you require.

For step-by-step instructions on using the Bulk Data Export tool, read our post here on Sourcing industry and economic data in FitchConnect

If you have any questions on FitchConnect’s BMI service or on any of the data and reports this service includes, please contact the School of Management Library.
