Frequently Asked Questions





What is FinanSearch?

FinanSearch is a financial search engine for top business and financial news and information sites.

It enables investors to search for reliable business and financial information while excluding irrelevant or tangential sites that would infest the results of plain search engines.

For example, a plain search would most likely turn up mountains of consumer-oriented information on a company being searched while FinanSearch will return investor-oriented information regarding a company.

4 Time Saving Tricks

Do you have a way that I can search for an exact match of a grouping of words or a phrase?

Yes, enclose the phrase or grouping of words in quotation marks.
For Example: "apple balance sheet"


Do you have a way that I can exclude a word from my searches?

Yes, put a subtraction mark before the word you would like to exclude.
For example: oil companies -Chevron


Do you have a way to search within a range of numbers?

Yes, put two periods between the numbers.
For example: 50 .. 100


Do you have a way to search for something if I can't remember or don't know one of the words but I know the rest of the words?

Yes, it is called a "wild card" and it can stand in for unknown words. It uses the asterisk character: *
Say for example you can't remember the word that starts with M in the big 4 auditing firm KPMG but you can remember the rest of the words.
You would search: Klynveld Peat * Goerdeler.
