More finance company research coming

Investors and advisers are going to get access to more research following the collapse of two finance companies.

Grosvenor is expanding its Bondwatch service and Australian research firm PIR, which has already researched a number of New Zealand finance companies, is going to make its research available.

Up until now PIR has had an exclusive deal with financial planning group Northplan, where only that group could use its research.

However, managing director Kelvin Symes, has made a "generous offer" and relaxed that exclusive arrangement.

Grosvenor chief investment officer David Beattie says although the Bondwatch service is based on quantitative analysis of information in publicly available in prospectuses and trust deeds it is working well.

He says if you read and can understand these documents a lot of information can be gained.

Besides this initial analysis Grosvenor then does some qualitative analysis of the results which looks for trends.

Now the service has been running for more than five years Grosvenor has been able to pick up trends which have proved valuable to clients.

Beattie says the comprehensive ratings service will be subscriber based and will include some educational elements.
