Hi joost,

Is it possible to link a dataset with ISIN (International Securities Identification Number) to gvkey in funda? I might have looked
at wrong places, but I didn’t find any file in Compustat (or WRDS) containing historical ISIN information for firms included in Compustat.

Thanks for your help!

hi Nan,

in CRSP:

historical ISIN: HISIN in SECHIST, see http://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/research/variable.cfm?library_id=137&file_id=66986
current ISIN: ISIN in SECHEAD, see http://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/research/variable.cfm?library_id=137&file_id=66985

best regards,

Joost
