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:

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