Tips for Power Searching In Refinitiv Workspace

Advanced search: Search across all reports by keyword, date range, subject/topic, analyst, analyst rating, etc.

  • Initiating coverage: Under subject, select "Initiation". Indicates when an analyst first began their coverage of a specific company. Useful for an extremely deep dive into a company.
  • Industry search: Locate reports that are not focused on one company, but rather an industry.

Avoiding the daily page download limit:

  • Select only the pages of reports that you need using the table of contents and "View Thumbnail" feature.
  • Avoid downloading large reports, or large amounts of reports, without evaluating their contents. Select only the pages of reports that you need to download.
  • Reached the limit of downloadable page in RWS? Find and download the reports you need via Mergent Online. (Note that Mergent Online lags behind RWS in terms of when reports are posted.)
