Toronto, May 15, 2019 - KASI Insight, Africa’s leading provider of sentiment data, today announces a partnership with global financial markets data and infrastructure provider, Refinitiv, that will allow users to access KASI Consumer Confidence Index (KASI CCI) on its desktop and mobile app, Eikon.
Launched in 2016, KASI CCI is Africa’s first monthly consumer confidence index and provides a focused view on the consumer sentiment in key African cities where the most spending on the continent is concentrated. The survey provides a simple measure of consumers’ optimism about their economic prospects in the near term and attitude towards making major purchasing decisions.
Refinitiv users will access monthly data, via Eikon, Datastream or Feeds as well as visibility into historical analysis with various levels of granularity - a 7 nation aggregate but also country data. The Index covers South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Cameroon and the Ivory Coast with the plan to expand into more markets (Ethiopia, Senegal) in 2019.
“We are excited to partner with Refinitiv to offer emerging market economic data from Africa that will reach investors worldwide,” said KASI Founder, Yannick Lefang. He added, “We provide unique African data sets with the breadth and depth that give a key competitive advantage to investors as Africa moves towards an open market. The partnership with Refinitiv is another sign that investors are looking for African data to help them make the most informed investment decisions.”
“Our partnership with KASI will add much value to our existing African data. Africa, as one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, is garnering interest from the global financial markets. The availability of KASI CCI via Eikon, Datastream and Feeds will provide the global financial community with expanded coverage into Africa,” said Nadim Najjar, Managing Director for the Middle East and Africa at Refinitiv.
