Cheap alternative to Capital IQ

Hi all,

I worked in a local investment banking boutique for some years and have just resigned to start my own M&A advisory firm. I used to work with Capital IQ, but have just noticed how expensive this is. I wonder whether you guys can suggest me a cheaper alternative to Capital IQ? I just need a platform for business valuation, so basically need to be able to screen trading comps (to extract multiples, betas and capital structures) and transaction comps.

I just found TagniFi but I'm still not aware about the price.

Thanks!

You can't get cheap transaction comp data. That's the most important and difficult thing to utilize for private M&A deals.
