The Financial Times has launched an online news and interactive data service for European private investors.
FTMarketwatch.com's chairman and CEO, Larry Kramer, said "We aim to capture the same market in Europe with the Financial Times because individual investors are desperate for real-time information."
The www.marketwatch.com website is split into three main sectors, with the latest news on equities, funds and bonds and including commentary in a similar vein to that of the FT.com website.
Investors can use a personalised, password-protected portfolio option to monitor their investments. Initial registration is free.
The site will allow investors to track their holdings in over 20 currencies and chart them against various sectors and indices. The move is aimed at mirroring developments across Europe such as the London-Frankfurt iX exchange.
