Live Cat Bounce in Q3
November 23, 2020

Transactions completed in the third quarter of 2020 suggest a market “stunned by the pandemic, but with a cat-like capacity to land on its feet.”



who we are

Serving the Middle Market

GF Data was founded in 2006 by deal professionals committed to giving themselves and others a more accurate view of transactions being completed in the lower middle market. One of our customers labelled our reports “Truth Serum for the Middle Market” — a departure from the inflated or off-point information previously available. We liked it, and have embraced it as a statement of what we try to contribute to the profession.



GF Data principals are featured speakers at industry conferences and thought leader programs.

Please see the virtual events we will be participating in.
