In 2014, BMI (Business Monitor International) Research was acquired by Fitch Group. BMI Research is now Fitch Solutions. As a result, the title of the reports may begin with BMI or Fitch Solutions.

- Nexis Uni: go to the Menu drop-down list (top left) and select All Sources > in the Search Within Sources box (left side) enter BMI and click search button (magnifying glass) > select a BMI title in the results list [NOTE: Use the link above for direct access to BMI reports via Nexis Uni]
