You may have noticed that my posting frequency has slackened over the past couple months. This is due to a couple new projects that I’m really excited about. And I’d like to unveil one of them today — the African Financial Statement Library.
If you spend much time researching or analyzing African stocks, you’ve likely spent a lot of time tracking down financial data. Many African companies still don’t have websites with proper investor relations sections, and the data provided by the stock exchanges themselves can be spotty.
So, we’re going to try to address this problem. The Library is a free collection of downloadable annual reports and financials for African listed companies. You can access it via the “Library” tab in the menu at the top of the page.
We’ve currently archived roughly 1400 reports. This is far from a comprehensive archive, but we add new reports regularly, so the collection will become more useful with each passing day.
Finally, I invite you to help us build the library. If you would like to contribute a financial report that doesn’t currently appear in the library, just send it my way at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll make sure it gets uploaded.
