RFI Global, the global leader in data and insights for financial services, today announced that it has acquired DBM Atlas, a leading Australian financial services data and insights provider from the Illuminera Group. This exciting acquisition will further enhance RFI’s unique data and insights proposition by bringing together the two most comprehensive financial service customer data sets in Australia.
Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, DBM is one of Australia’s leading specialist research and insights consultancies. Founded in 1992 by Dhruba Gupta, DBM boasts a rich record of experience and expertise used to benchmark the performance of Australia’s most successful organisations. Their focus in financial services is delivered via the power of products DBM Atlas and DBM Audiences – Australia’s most comprehensive financial services customer datasets.
Combining RFI Global’s Australian capabilities with DBM’s Atlas proposition will provide benefits to both companies’ client bases in the form of enhanced services and solutions, including access to the largest financial services data set of customer behaviour and attitudes in the Australian market and a connected experience across DBM Atlas and RFI insights.
RFI Global’s CEO and Co-Founder Charles Green said in his announcement of the acquisition: “RFI has long admired DBM Atlas and the work that it does in the Australian market, and we believe our product suites and client bases are very complimentary. We are therefore very excited to bring together the two most comprehensive financial service customer data sets in Australia for the greater benefit of our clients.”
RFI Global was founded in Sydney in 2006 to provide financial intelligence for the Australian financial services market and has since grown into a global company serving 49 markets. Backed by its LA based investment partners, Diversis Capital, RFI Global is on an exponential growth trajectory, having recently established a local presence in New York, Dubai, Paris and San Francisco to add to its existing presence in London, Sydney, Singapore, and Toronto.
In 2010 and 2011 RFI Global was recognised on the BRW Fast Starters List and featured on the BRW Fast 100 List (listing the fastest growing companies in Australia) in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 – only the second company ever to reach this milestone of 5 consecutive years on the list.
CEO International of Illuminera, Chris Riquier said: “The DBM Atlas team are truly excited to be joining RFI Global to write a new story in Australia. DBM’s client base has always benefited from a focus on robust and reliable data and we know that, like us, RFI is constantly exploring ways to deliver richer insights and strategic guidance. We look forward to continuing this journey together.”
DBM Social Research and 3arc will remain with the Illuminera Group with DBM Social re-branded as 3arc Social.
