ASX-listed fintech expands to Australian property investing vertical

HALO Technologies, an ASX-listed online global equities research and trade execution software solution, has announced the upcoming launch of a new research product focused on the Australian property investment market.

Halo Property, a subscription-based research product that would be underpinned by CoreLogic Australia, will be rolled out this month to address the demand for high quality, insightful information and research from investors, with Australian economist Warren Hogan appointed as economic advisor to Halo.

In his new role, Hogan, former chief economist at both ANZ Bank and Credit Suisse Australia and former principal advisor at The Australian Treasury, will drive the development and sales of the Halo Property product.

“Our goal is to continuously expand and enhance HALO’s product offering to appeal to the ever-growing cohort of investors searching for research and insights underpinned by data to inform their investment decisions,” said George Paxton, HALO CEO. “Our aim is to be the one-stop-shop for all investors by providing data solutions tailored to the specific markets they are interested in – be that Australian equities, global equities, and now – Australian property.”

“HALO Property will put resources into combining microeconomic analytical capacity within a macroeconomic, top-down view of what’s happening in property markets and how the economy is affecting property – creating a unique and accessible end-to-end property analytics function for investors,” Hogan said. “Halo Property provides a unique proposition that combines market leading macroeconomic analysis of interest rates, funding markets, and household income with transaction level trends in property markets right across Australia. We believe there is always value in the market, and this platform will give investors the ability to dig deeper and identify it.”

HALO feed data is now available in financial planning and wealth management software Xplan, allowing financial advisors to connect their HALO Global custody holdings to Xplan via a one-way live data sync.
