Cedar Rose: 25 years of striving for excellence

Cedar Rose has been delivering high quality credit risk reporting and analysis, business intelligence and investigative due diligence on companies across the world for more than 25 years. We initially grew as specialists in the Middle East and North Africa, building the world’s largest database in that region. Now, we’ve grown to be a global player, offering information on 405 million companies worldwide.

Our core belief is simple: by facilitating trust we can help our clients create valuable opportunities and sustainable long-term business relationships. With solid and reliable information on business partners, transactions are made safer and more secure so that your company is best placed to continue its business growth.

Our state-of-the-art AI-powered process and technology captures, edits and presents information so that reports are accurate, up-to-date, and delivered fast.

Cedar Rose’s data-driven services are more individually tailored to our clients’ requirements than any others on the market, with services now including company credit reports, full due diligence, electronic identity verification (KYC and KYB), compliance checks, and many other risk analysis and verification solutions.

From day one, our aim has been to ‘Strive for Excellence’. It is not a marketing slogan. It is an operational reality. This approach has enabled us to maintain successful relationships for more than two decades as our clients return again and again, working with Cedar Rose as a long-term partner.
