Exchange Data International launches an African Economic Data Service.
15 May 2014 From Ventures Africa, we have a report that global securities data provider Exchange Data International has launched an African Economic Data Service.
This means that organizations and investors seeking to invest in Africa can now access macroeconomic and financial data for all 54 countries on the continent in one spot.
All data collected is normalised and classed into 13 main groups including National Accounts, Inflation, Prices & Wages, Government & Society and Politics and clients can compare sources on the same indicator.
CEO at EDI, Jonathan Bloch said the AFED was created based on the gap perceived in the market for a consolidated source of macroeconomic data that will help support investors in making investment decisions.
