FNArena started life in June 2002. From the get go there was a build-in desire to break down barriers and to innovate. The Australian Broker Call Report, the first service offered by the company, was at that time totally new and controversial, before it became widely copied and imitated.
The upgrade of the FNArena website in early 2017 marks another leap towards achieving that ultimate target; to offer the most sophisticated service available for researching Australian equities.
