The Archived Industry & Metro Reports is a compilation of every archived custom report ever produced by KeyValueData’s research staff, except those produced in the last six (6) months.  If you added up what valuators actually paid for all these custom research reports, it would total over $1,000,000.

The Federal & State Law Cases is our compilation of all the business valuation (BV) relevant cases and case digests going back 30 years.  This library is updated monthly with case summaries included and has always been available to members for a cost, but now it is free.  If you are paying for this service from other industry providers, save yourself $300–$500 a year because that is what they charge, and here, you have everything you need for BV case law research for free. 
Our Conference Presentations are a goldmine of cutting-edge insight, presented by the industry’s most revered leaders, covering the most important topics of the last 15 years.  The vast majority of these presentations/topics are still the focus of industry discussions today.  NACVA used to sell each year’s conference materials, but now, this library valued in excess of $10,000 is free to NACVA members. 

Our Compensation Data is hard-to-find data provided by the government.  What we have done is brought it together in one place to simplify your research.  Some providers of this type of data charge hundreds of dollars a year for a single user.  This service is free to NACVA members. 
S-1 Filings is a treasure-trove of industry information that is often overlooked by valuators because sifting through publically available SEC filings is a daunting task.  S-1 filings are required submissions for companies going public that address the industry’s economics, opportunities, and risks.  This is an incredibly reliable and rich source for your own research, providing threads to other sources and helping you to quickly become an expert on any industry.  KeyValueData is the only service I know of to make this tremendous resource available and easily searchable.  Its value cannot be ascertained because we have nothing to compare it to.  I do know hundreds of hours went into compiling it, and now it is free to NACVA members. 
Expert Witness Profiler (EWP) is a service that allows you to obtain Daubert relevant background information on any “expert.”  This service normally costs $45 each time you use it, but it is free to NACVA members.  Though the information you obtain is summary oriented, the reports are based on 40 sources that will point you in the right direction to dig up more meaningful insights on an expert you are up against.  This is a source you can use to educate and impress the attorneys you work with and provide them a winning-edge service.  If you wish, the provider of our EWP service, Daubert Tracker, LLC., will provide expanded and deeper research into the expert you want profiled for a fee.  But with EWP, you can also do this research yourself.
The Around the Valuation World® webcast is the next generation method of obtaining the latest updates, news, trends, and activity occurring in the rapidly evolving business valuation and financial litigation profession. To support you, we have assembled a team of industry correspondents and the profession’s leading and emerging experts who will be covering the profession’s leading publications and delivering in an online, interactive webcast all you need to know so that at all times, you can be confident that your knowledge is current and accurate as you navigate “Around the Valuation World!” NACVA members and KeyValueData® subscribers can view the monthly Around the Valuation World® webcast at no cost. To receive CPE there is an additional annual cost of $225. No additional discounts. This Annual CPE Subscription includes up to 27 hours of CPE, depending on attendance. Additional CPE can be earned during the subscription term from exclusive access to the AVW archives and completing CPE quizzes. This webcast qualifies for 12 bonus points toward NACVA credentialed member recertification, in addition to course CPE (A minimum of 8 hours attendance required for 12 bonus points).


A Benefit That Keeps on Giving
The EconAssist subscription comes with many other perks like our Business Valuation articles library now with 7,400+ articles archived.  Plus, there is more—other services/sources we have pulled together to help you perform your valuation research.  Two other important databases that do require a fee but for which we have worked out a special arrangement for our members are: First Research Industry and State Profiles, and BizMiner Industry Financial Reports. 
First Research is a warehouse of up to date and historical industry studies (over 900 industries) and is the valuation industry’s primary source for this type of research required for every valuation engagement.  Each report costs $139, and an annual unlimited access subscription is only $1099, an absolute bargain.
BizMiner Industry / Metro Reports:  The report includes three year’s industry market research trends.  You can select any industry for the national or local U.S. market.  The report also contains a competitive advantage analysis, mapped intelligence, industry volume, average sales, and rank.  Each report costs $109.
