Investors bemoaning the lack of news coverage on Catalist-listed companies can now visit a new "one-stop platform" catered specifically for firms listed on the secondary board, which is marking its 10th anniversary.

Investor-One, launched by investor relations company ShareInvestor, is a mobile-friendly site running content exclusively for Catalist-listed companies.

Its features include interviews with chief executives, aggregated content from Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) publications and platforms, and educational articles from sponsors Prime Partners Corporate Finance and SAC Capital.

Another feature is a timer that counts down companies going for an initial public offering (IPO) as well as numbers on how recent debutants have performed.

The portal will also carry the Singapore Exchange's industry and sectoral research and analyses, as well as the popular "kopi-C" series, which profiles company founders and is aimed at highlighting the investment merits of Catalist firms.

ShareInvestor chief executive Christopher Lee said: "Catalist companies do not get much coverage in the mainstream media or from the research houses. Investor-One aims to change that.

"The portal's bite-sized content is also suitable in an age where most of us have a short attention span and want access to concise and quick information."

ShareInvestor is a subsidiary of SPH.
