Research your investments with Smart Investor

We now offer various options to help inform your investment decisions.

The information in the research centre is not advice to you on the suitability of investing. We don’t offer advice. If you’re unsure, seek independent advice. The value of investments can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invest.

Our Research Centre

Our dedicated Research Centre offers tools and resources to help you make smarter investment decisions.

New – research shares in our standalone platform

We’ve been improving our research capabilities and have launched the first version of a new platform designed to make it easier for you to do your investment research – starting with shares. We’ve created a superior navigation and structure, offering new functionality over how data is displayed and an improved search function; it now also works better on mobile devices.

Stay tuned for more developments in 2022.
