Ana Forssman, Director of Market Data at the JSE says "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.   It's a great development that Google Finance will facilitate this exposure to a comprehensive audience within SA and globally."


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.  According to the World Economic Forum, South Africa is ranked second in terms of raising finance through the local equity market.
