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.
