Hello,

Maybe Joost could answer answer this question? I am from Holland by the way smile.

I would like to get some data from Compustat but I first need the GVKEY codes for all the dutch listed companies (and some non-listed companies) in my research.
Where can I find these GVKEY codes for these companies? Can someone give some tips or a useful website where I can find these GVKEY codes?

Thank you very much!

Kind regards,

Tom

Hoi Tom,

This could be a good starting point: G_NAMES dataset: https://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/tools/variable.cfm?library_id=7&file_id=52041

If I am not mistaken, the first characters of ISIN will tell you the country of the (primary) exchange. (There is also country of incorporation where you can filter on).

If the #firms is incomplete, you could try to use DataStream to find Isins and match those onto the G_NAMES file.

groetjes,

Joost
