Real-time Alerts on Corporate Insiders

There’s nothing worse than giving a frontline officer ‘stale’ information on a prospect or donor. Imagine scheduling a visit only to find the prospect has changed jobs or companies, or the data you’re working with is from two or three years ago. Your advancement teams need real-time alerts on Wealth Disclosures and Career changes.

Many efforts in prospect research and wealth screening focus only on compensation and stock sales, but there’s much more to be learned from specific elements of SEC filings. Where press releases and news can be rather generic in reporting a new hire, filings deliver the details.  Recently a well-known company, hired a new C-Level person. The press release read like this:
