New features on WOWEB to be introduced in the near future

BEE Scorecard Peer Analysis

This facility will allow users to rank sectors and companies for overall BEE scores as well as for each component of the scorecard.

Company Transparency Ratings

There is an inexorable trend towards transparency in the global fight against corruption, money laundering and terrorist funding. WOW researches approximately 1,000 companies per month and has developed a transparency rating that ranks companies in terms of their willingness to disclose, with an emphasis on those companies that promote transparency as a corporate ethos.

Sector Volatility Ratings

  • WOW has developed a volatility rating which measures each sector based on its sensitivity to environmental changes, namely Macro-economic, Regulation, Demand-Supply dynamics, Market Structure, Inputs & Resources, Financial performance and Technology advances.
  • In future the volatility rating will be used to guide the sector report update cycle.


TakeOver Talk (TOT)

  • TOT will identify Foreign Direct Investment transactions and enable users to identify the source of and target country for each investment.
  • In addition, for each transaction the user will have access to the PDF version of the original document.
