Company Refs Acquired

Slater Investments and Stockopedia have issued a press release saying they have acquired the Company Refs financial analysis service. Company Refs was devised by Jim Slater, the father of the current Slater Investments Chairman and was originally published in paper form as a summary of all the key financial information on public companies on one page. It was later digitised but active marketing of the service has not taken place in recent years. But it was a truly innovative solution to help both professional and private investors when first devised.

Stockopedia provides a very similar service and the press release suggests that current REFS subscribers will be integrated into the Stockopedia service while Slater will use the financial database and intellectual property for internal research purposes.
