Say Goodbye To 'business As Usual'
Saturday November 24, 2007
BUSINESSDAY is more, far more, than the section you are holding. It is a fully integrated journalism product that includes your computer and handheld devices.We are delighted to tell you the website that is such a key part of BusinessDay has been upgraded, making it Australia's leading free tool for investors. The site has been given a fresher, cleaner look - making it easier to navigate and allowing each user to place themselves at the centre of their own investment universe. You can monitor your investment portfolio and receive price and news alerts on the device of your choice. We'll tell you which directors are buying and selling shares and which companies are reporting changes in substantial shareholdings. The tools we give you to analyse the performance of your actual and potential investments have been buttressed with one of the most powerful charting packages in the world.Deeper price and news information on currencies has been added. There's more foreign news, too, augmenting our breaking news coverage. We've also added journalism on personal finance and small business.BusinessDay is also leading the way with breaking views. The best in the business - led by Malcolm Maiden and including blogger and commentator Leon Gettler and markets columnist Vanessa Burrow - bring you video, audio and print commentary within minutes of major news. Which means, unlike many of our competitors, BusinessDay is not in the business of telling you what happened in markets, companies, economies, policy and politics yesterday. It tells you what's happening right now, and what it means for the future. It's not only news you can use, it is exclusive intelligence you can not afford to miss. With its 24-hour rolling coverage in the newspaper and on the website, BusinessDay delivers what the others are still trying to design. -- MICHAEL SHORT, EXECUTIVE EDITOR
