Today FinanceAsia.com launches a subscription service for articles on our website that have been available free to readers for seven days. However, stories that are less than a week old, as well as the FinanceAsia Daily and Weekly Capital Markets E-mail Newsletters, will remain FREE to read.
The service has been introduced due to strong demand for archived material. There are over 4,000 articles in the archives that our journalists have been filing daily since the site's launch in November 2000. This store of financial news and commentary has proved extremely useful to readers who use the site for research purposes.
However, retaining the tradition of being the only free online source of English-language Asian capital markets news, users will be able to download stories for up to seven days before they are archived.
The new subscription service follows a comprehensive upgrade of the site's search functions giving users more flexibility when it comes to accessing stored information. Readers can now filter their keyword search criteria by country, industry and story head, or they can request articles written by a particular author. The inclusion of story heads in the search criteria allows readers to access articles that are relevant to their topic of interest whether this be debt capital markets and mergers and acquisitions, or mutual funds and cash management.
As of today, articles that have been archived will appear on the site with a small lock icon. Users who wish to read these articles will be asked to log on using an individual username and password. Subscribers can buy a single article or can purchase bulk articles through monthly and annual packages. Payment can be made by phone during Hong Kong office hours, or by credit card using PayPal's secure payment gateway.
