Singapore, 4 July 2011 – Financial Internet media and technology company ShareInvestor today opened the forum on its financial portal, ShareInvestor.com, to non-subscribers.
The subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) held a media briefing at SPH News Centre to explain the move.
The ShareInvestor Forum (SI Forum) is a platform for financial savvy netizens to share their investment experiences. By allowing non-subscribers to access the portal’s forum, a greater number of retail investors will now be able to read the postings and learn investment strategies from other users.
ShareInvestor also introduced mobile applications for the iPhone and Android platforms. Having mobile and real-time access to stock prices and financial news is critical for investors to make calculated investment choices.
Mr Christopher Lee, CEO of ShareInvestor, said: “We are aware that with the current volatility in the market, investors need to be kept updated on the development of companies they wish to invest in. We are continually improving ShareInvestor.com to better serve investors in Singapore and the region. We want to continue to be the region’s leading provider of financial data, analysis, news and charting tools for investors and listed companies.”
Mr Lim Dau Hee, ShareInvestor’s Group IT Director and project leader for the financial portal, said: “The improvements we have made to ShareInvestor.com are the result of listening to our audience. We are always keeping an eye out for new ways to offer timely, relevant and accurate information to new and seasoned investors.”
Key improvements to ShareInvestor.com made since the portal’s major revamp last year were also highlighted at the briefing. They will not only increase the ease of managing stocks portfolios, but also enable retail investors to analyse the market more efficiently.
