History

In 1983, Informa Research Services was originally launched as Meyer Interest Rate Survey. In 1993, the company was purchased by the BISYS Group. The same management team led the company to further successes and increased growth. New divisions were developed as new areas of research and the resulting products became in high demand.

In June of 2000, the company was purchased by Informa plc and was renamed Informa Research Services, Inc. The resulting success came from an increased focus on new research areas and enhanced technology systems and solutions. [http://informars.com/main/Company/CorporateHistory.aspx]
