Award-winning fintech firm, Shareclarity, has released its inaugural Yearbook showcasing analytical data on more than 180 Australasian listed companies.
Daniel Kieser, Shareclarity managing director, said the free 2016 Yearbook, which includes financial and valuation metrics for 185 listed firms, “demonstrates the breadth and depth of what we do”.
According to the Shareclarity Yearbook, the firm – launched in 2015 as a cloud-based ‘information platform’ – employs “a team of financial analysts who apply fundamental principles to research and value ASX- and NZX-listed companies”.
“Each has a detailed description of what it does, a chat forum and a discounted cashflow valuation that can be changed,” the Yearbook says.
The analysis extends to listed firms across the market cap spectrum including many that “are not covered by any other firm”.
The current stocks on show represent almost triple the number included on the Shareclarity platform at launch.
Kieser said the company was continually adding shares to the analytical pool with up to 400 firms expected to make the Shareclarity 2017 Yearbook “including our first Asian ones”.
Following the company’s launch last year, he said Shareclarity was aimed at anyone interested in equities ranging from “first time investors to students, from financial advisers to fund managers”.
“We’ve tried to demystify the sharemarket by building a transparent window into how companies operate and what their shares could be worth,” Keiser said at the time.
The firm operates a ‘freemium’ model with monthly subscriptions starting at $7.95 for broader access.
In September this year Sharclarity earned an entry ticket to the trans-Tasman market with an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL). The Australian regulator fast-tracked the Shareclarity AFSL under its ‘Innovation Hub’ incubator for fintech start-ups.
Keiser was named ‘emerging leader of the year’ at the May 2016 INFINZ awards.
The Shareclarity board includes former AMP Capital NZ senior portfolio manager, Douglas Lau.
