Get the latest news from FIIG on social media

Social media has become an extraordinary influence that is reshaping the way we find and consume news. Half of the world’s population is now online and more than 16 million Australians are using social media. Last year, a survey by professional services firm Deloitte, showed social media well on its way to being the primary news source for most Australians.

We all know Australian investors have a love affair with equities, but there is a growing appreciation of the benefits of corporate bonds. While commentary is growing, fixed income ‘talk’ remains subdued compared to other asset classes. As Australia’s leading fixed income expert, FIIG provides a regular source of dynamic news and commentary on new issues and trades, domestic or offshore, within the fixed income space.

To keep up with the latest fixed income news from FIIG and The WIRE, you can find us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter and get updates on the go. Let’s look at where you can find us online.

Facebook

This tech giant is the obvious powerhouse dominating the global social landscape and Australia is obsessed with it. With 70% of the nation’s population as active Facebook users, a 2016 report found that Australia leads the world for how often we check the social media platform.
