Due to the situation with COVID-19, we have prepared measures to access certain fixed-terminal finance databases.

  • Capital IQ - remote accounts can be requested. These requests are delivered in batches and it can take days before you will have access. 
  • Bloomberg Market Concepts - current McGill students and faculty can access the Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) online learning course for free during this time. Regular Bloomberg access is NOT available. You can register your BMC account or login with your existing account here.
  • SDC Platinum remote access can be requested for Windows users only. 

Those wishing to use Capital IQ and SDC Platinum online from home should contact Amanda Wheatley or Dawn McKinnon directly for installation procedures.

At the moment, we do not have remote access available for Eikon and Morningstar. We will update you with more information if access becomes available.
