Introducing Company Watch

Founded in 1998 with backing from the global trade credit insurer, Atradius, Company Watch is now privately owned by Denis Baker and Lance French, two of the original co-founders, who are still actively involved in the business. At our heart we are an analytics company rather than a data company, and that is what sets us apart from the other Credit Reference Agencies.

Our clients don’t just want to be given information, they want to be able to understand the insight we provide –

that’s why transparent scoring and a clear layout is something we pride ourselves on.
