What is Whalewisdom?
Whalewisdom is an aggregator of publicly available financial information. Certain financial institutions are required by law to file forms with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for purposes of increasing the fairness and efficiency of the securities market. Whalewisdom collects these filings on a daily basis. Filings are processed and organized to produce actionable insight for users.
Whalewisdom was created in 2008 with the simple goal of providing users with the ability to compare changes in 13F portfolios quarter over quarter. The site has since expanded to include processing of other SEC filings such as 13D/G, Form 4, N-Sar, and Form D.
Data Collection Process
Whalewisdom.com SEC filing data (13F's, 13D/G's, Form 3/4) collection is done in house and is entirely automated with little to no human intervention. Without human oversight, there is a greater risk that data error may exist since we are relying on the filer to provide accurate information. Use at your own risk.
