The World's Most Comprehensive Database for the Middle East and North Africa

With a subscription to our CRiS MENA database you will gain access to a wealth of data on companies, directors and shareholders in any or all of the following countries:














Saudi Arabia



United Arab Emirates


Our MENA database contains company data on over 12 million companies and 23 million individuals across the Arabic speaking countries. Data has been translated and transliterated to enable searches in both Arabic and Romanised characters (English and French). CRiS MENA can be used to search for companies and individuals and identify connections between them via our powerful link analysis functionality.

CRiS MENA was created as both an investigative research tool – ideal for journalists, researchers, threat finance and due diligence specialists to gain access to data not previously available online in the English language – and as a resource for credit reporting, credit analysis, KYC (Know Your Customer), directorship and shareholding investigations and the identification of UBOs (Ultimate Beneficiary Owners) to aid in AML (Anti-Money Laundering) investigations. CRiS MENA subscribers can view our MENA data, download reports and order fresh investigations. CRiS MENA gives the subscribers the tools to easily access all of our range of freshly investigated credit and due diligence reports, as well as our experienced and qualified in-house analysts.

Search in Arabic & English

Due to language barriers, a culture of privacy and technological challenges, gathering data from the MENA region has not been easy. In order to enable greater accuracy when identifying companies and people, CRiS MENA allows Arabic and/or Latin character searches.
