The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) says it has partnered with Google Finance to offer clients and investors JSE equity price data via Google Finance.
Google Finance enables people to get financial information from 35 stock exchanges, globally.
JSE equity market data is now available to both local and global clients as well as investors, enabling them to track the market activity of their shares on the JSE.
All equity listed instruments on the JSE are provided with a 15 minute delay, the bourse noted.
Ana Forssman, director of market data at the JSE said: “We are excited to offer our clients and potential investors with an additional platform to get exposure to our equity market via Google Finance.”
“Technology and accessibility to information is a critical enabler for exchanges and with more and more people accessing market data online, it made sense for the JSE to be more broadly available.”
In 2013, 45% of the JSE’s data was subscribed to outside of South Africa, indicating international demand for South African equities and exposure to African investments in general, the JSE said.
It noted that the World Economic Forum ranks South Africa second in terms of raising finance through the local equity market.
