Getting Started with the S&P Capital IQ Pro Platform

To create an account and to use all the functionality of Capital IQ Pro, you will have to connect through the University's Full Tunnel VPN. You can find information about downloading the VPN here.

If you already have a Capital IQ account, login to www.capitaliq.com and follow the highlighted links to Capital IQ Pro. Then proceed to step 5. If you do not have a Capital IQ account start with step 1 below.

Step 1: Navigate to libguides.umn.edu/63504231 to begin the registration process. Once on this page, select “New User Sign Up” -> “Capital IQ Pro New User Sign Up”:

Step 2: Next, enter your University email on the “New User Sign Up page”.

Step 3: Check your email (or spam folder) and follow directions to register. This may take up to 15 minutes to send.

Step 4: Fill out the required basic information as prompted.

Step 5: Fill out the Profile Information however you want. Any selections can be edited later in the profile section of your account.

Step 6: Select your Specialization. Any specialization can be changed later. Select “Generalist” for the broadest platform view.

Step 7: Create your password & accept the Terms and Conditions.

Once this is completed, you should now be able to access the Capital IQ Pro platform. If you have any issues, please reach out to our 24/7 support (support.capiqpro@spglobal.com).
