The Star Early Edition - - PRICES -

SOUTH Africa’s lead­ing busi­ness and per­sonal fi­nance web­sites are now pro­vid­ing read­ers with ac­cess to share and unit trust data, at no cost.

In ad­di­tion, www.bus­rep.co.za and www.iol.co.za/per­sonal-fi­nance will be pro­vid­ing his­tor­i­cal data to give read­ers the in­tel­li­gence they need to make savvy in­vest­ment de­ci­sions.

All his­tor­i­cal data for all of the more than 300 JSE-listed com­pa­nies, as well as in­ter­ac­tive share graphs and Stock Ex­change News Ser­vice an­nounce­ments, are avail­able to read­ers at no charge.

The re­la­tion­ship with Pro­file Data, which is pro­vid­ing the data and in­sights, will also give read­ers an en­hanced read­ing ex­pe­ri­ence as in­ter­ac­tive graphs will be em­bed­ded within ar­ti­cles.

“What sets these of­fer­ings apart from our com­peti­tors is that the tools are in­ter­ac­tive, al­low­ing read­ers a rich­ness of ex­pe­ri­ence for which we are not charg­ing, be­cause we be­lieve it adds value and that they shouldn’t have to pay for it,” says In­de­pen­dent Busi­ness On­line ed­i­tor, Wes­ley Diphoko .

In­vest­ment data cover­ing both JSE listed se­cu­ri­ties and col­lec­tive in­vest­ment schemes will be pro­vided to the In­de­pen­dent Me­dia Group from Pro­file’s ShareData and Fund­sData ser­vices.

ShareData pro­vides a sin­gle source of com­pre­hen­sive listed com­pany in­for­ma­tion. The pro­file re­search team strives to cap­ture all rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion for ev­ery listed com­pany, rang­ing from ad­dress de­tails to com­pre­hen­sive fi­nan­cial data.

Fund­sData pro­vides a on­estop data so­lu­tion cover­ing ev­ery as­pect of the col­lec­tive in­vest­ment schemes in­dus­try, in­clud­ing unit trust fact sheets and fund-per­for­mance data, while the pro­file re­search team en­deav­our to cap­ture and store all rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion for ev­ery fund and ev­ery man­age­ment com­pany.

ShareData also in­cludes up-to­date in­dex, cur­rency, com­mod­ity and other fi­nan­cial data. “Over time, we will en­hance these of­fer­ings to make them more in­ter­ac­tive, of­fer­ing even more value,” says Diphoko.
