The goals of this project were to produce a research database of financial documents for Angelo Gordon to support the firm in deciding their future investments and to simplify the comparison and analysis of these documents. Using a combination of Python and R programming, we created a central structured database of financial reports, comprised of information regarding both public and private companies. We simplified the analysis process by automating the extraction of specific values from some PDF reports of public companies. We demonstrated the extraction by testing it on a group of 185 reports from 13 companies. This project will significantly reduce the time an investment analyst needs to collect and review large amounts of information.
