We have updated our Database of Statistics that, we believe, provide clear evidence of the globalisation of the world's capital markets and of the need for global financial reporting standards.

The latest updates reflect 2007 US SEC data on foreign registrants:

Number of non-US companies registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission:

  • 1,058 companies from 52 jurisdictions at 31 December 2007
  • 1,145 companies from 53 jurisdictions at 31 December 2006
  • 1,236 companies from 53 jurisdictions at 31 December 2005
  • 1,240 companies from 55 jurisdictions at 31 December 2004
Detailed 31 December 2007 data: Additionally, 684 foreign companies whose securities trade in the US claim exemption from SEC registration because they are registered in, and file comparable information in, their home jurisdiction or another jurisdiction.
