SIRCA Data Library Update

From 9 AM to 11 AM on Wednesday, 20 July 2016 SIRCA will be updating the Data Library (DL) in order to provide more consistency to the data held within the DL repository. During this time there may be small disruptions to the SIRCA Member Portal.
The following changes are being implemented:
– The Australian Company Announcements (ACA) headline summaries will no longer be available via the DL, but they will continue to appear through the full ACA product, available here:
– The Financial Express Analytics (FE Analytics) application form will now be available via SIRCA’s Knowledge Base ( and no longer through a DL folder.
We hope the changes will improve your research experience within the SIRCA Data Library.
