Australian Equities Database

About the Project

The ACFS Australian Equities Database is a unique digital database of Australian equities from 1926 to 1995. The database fills gaps in existing Australian databases, and provides a more comprehensive base for the analysis of portfolio formation strategies and capital asset pricing models over the longer term.

The following data is currently available through the AED and can be downloaded in CSV format:

  • Coverage of just under 6,000 companies
  • Monthly data on 18 variables
  • Market and company level price and accumulation indices
  • Web based charting capability
