Led by founders Antoun and Christina Massaad who believed that MENA credit data should be available in one place and searchable in both Arabic and English.

This goal has been achieved and gives companies around the world greater opportunities to trade securely with those in the Arab world.

Antoun explains the Cedar Rose vision "I see us eventually becoming the go-to source for instant global business intelligence, risk rating and verification on any company, director or shareholder in the world with full link analysis.”

Strive for Excellence is the company's motto and a term that has contributed to the Cedar Rose success story.

Excellent ME resource to have in you credit toolbox!

Since beginning to use Cedar Rose, our company has gained invaluable insights into corporate structures in jurisdictions that were previously closed to our researchers. Cedar Rose’s data access and credit reports are of superior quality and their breadth remains unparalleled, particularly in their ability to build credit profiles in the Middle East, and North Africa region. They also offer excellent customer service in assisting their clientele, and have developed a superior user interface, ensuring a seamless experience for their customers. We have been exceptionally satisfied with Cedar Rose’s services and would be pleased to expand our partnership and database usage.

The firm has never failed to deliver what was promised. On time. On budget. Cedar Rose leadership is visionary. They have created a unique organization that is at the same time reliable while also being exceptionally flexible in adapting to the widely varied requirements we have imposed. The integrity of Cedar Rose reports is of the highest order. The firm has shown an admirable capability to adapt the reporting to fit the needs of our clients. Of special note is the expansion of Cedar Rose investigations into the field we refer to as human intelligence – going beyond the data and document search to interpretation of the information collected. This is especially difficult, but essential to the needs of our clients.

We would like to express our thanks to you and the pleasure we have had in collaborating with your Company for more than 5 years. Indeed, thank you for your professionalism and availability as well as the attention that you bring to meet all our requirements.

I have worked with Cedar Rose for more than 5 years.

My confidence in Cedar Rose and their products has allowed me to grow my business and expand the scope of services to my clients on a global scale and in particular, in areas of the world where data is difficult, if not almost impossible to collect. I truly value my on-going relationships with Antoun, Christina and the Cedar Rose Team.
