It said the app would give investors faster and more transparent access to investment material – including share price, key financials, relevant media articles, and analyst insights.

The app covers the more than 270 different listed companies within the Shareclarity portfolio from throughout New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong.

Daniel Kieser, founder and managing director of Shareclarity, said the initiative was the culmination of several months of hard work by a large team of developers and analysts.

“Our AR app, which we believe to be the first of its kind in our category, lets time-poor investors find what they’re after without even typing. All they have to do is point their phone at the name of one of the firms we cover - in an email, newspaper, website or street sign - and we’ll instantaneously overlay our research-based analysis and insights.

“Technology is creating new ways for people to access and interact with information all the time. While we’re obviously excited about this development, there’s even more to come from Shareclarity in the near future, including voice controls and modular research. Soon, instead of receiving a lengthy, staid broker report, you’ll be able to download, post, send and receive the parts you want via email, text, WhatsApp, Messenger and other channels."

With operations in both New Zealand and Australia, the launch of the Shareclarity app is designed for investors, wealth advisers, fund managers and financial institutions on both sides of the Tasman, and Asia.
