Villanova students and faculty now have access to Dealscan. Dealscan provides data on the global commercial loan market. The data from Thomson/Refinitiv and hosted on the Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS) platform provides detailed information about lenders, borrowers and loan deals, tranches, pricing, terms, and conditions.
Loan data is widely used by financial, economic, and accounting researchers. Some recent topics examined with Dealscan data include the following:
- Trade war impact on international borrowing
- Mitigation of cost of debt for innovative firms by disclosure readability
- Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives impact on loan covenants.
- How loan covenants affect takeover targets
Villanova community members can register for on and off campus access to WRDS access by registering and using DUO two-factor authorization.
