ABC Lateline Business coverage of ASX Equity Research Scheme

Update on the ASX Equity Research Scheme.

This newsletter has previously covered the problem that some companies who are outside the S&P/ASX 200 index faced with a lack of regular equity research coverage. For many of these companies, generating investor interest has been challenging and raising capital has proven difficult and expensive.

The ASX Equity Research Scheme was announced as one means of trying to address the problem.

With a lot of companies struggling to get attention from stock market analysts, the Scheme has started to gain momentum across the listed equity market and was recently featured on ABC’s Lateline Business report where you can read the transcript and view the three and half minute video.

The Scheme has started with an initial 18 companies and 5 Research providers.

For more information on the Scheme, please contact Sara Makkinga, Equity Markets, on 02 9227 0622 or visit the ASX website.
