was founded by a medical doctor, Michael Leong in late 1999. The company was originally positioned as the preferred online platform for investors to learn and share. The senior management team comprises of senior executives from the public relations, finance and information technology industries.
Initially, ShareInvestor depended on online banner advertisement as the main revenue source. However, when the internet bubble burst in early 2000, the company had to reposition itself to focus on more specific customer requirements instead of just relying on banner advertisement to generate revenue.
The online investor relations service offering was first introduced in late 2000. The objective was to leverage the internet to help public listed companies communicate their investment merits to their stakeholders. The business grew rapidly and we then expanded this service offering to Malaysia and Thailand in 2004 and 2005 respectively.
Financial information was offered free to online visitors in the early years in ShareInvestor. However, with a renewed focus on creating more value for our online visitors, we introduced the market data tool service offering in late 2000. ShareInvestor focuses on delivering timely updated fundamental and charting tools for both novice and sophisticated investors. These led to the creation of both our products ShareInvestor.com and ShareInvestor Station.
As ShareInvestor became an independent financial portal in Singapore, financial advertisers were keen to leverage on our reach to promote their investment products. We repackage our online advertisement offerings in 2003 with specific focus on different asset classes.
In 2006, ShareInvestor introduced our first bi-monthly financial print publication, INVEST magazine. In 2007, we organised the inaugural INVEST Fair, a large scale 2-day conference cum exhibition drawing more than 20,000 visitors. With these successes, we expanded both the magazine and event business into Malaysia in 2008.
In late 2008, the ShareInvestor Group of companies was acquired by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH).
