NAME

Finance::Quote::FTfunds - Obtain UK Unit Trust quotes from FT.com (Financial Times).

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    $q = Finance::Quote->new;

    %info = Finance::Quote->fetch("ftfunds","<isin> ...");  # Only query FT.com using ISINs



DESCRIPTION

This module fetches information from the Financial Times Funds service, http://funds.ft.com. There are over 47,000 UK Unit Trusts and OEICs quoted, as well as many Offshore Funds and Exhange Traded Funds (ETFs). It converts any funds quoted in GBX (pence) to GBP, dividing the price by 100 in the process.

Funds are identified by their ISIN code, a 12 character alphanumeric code. Although the web site also allows searching by fund name, this version of Finance::Quote::FTfunds only implements ISIN lookup. To determine the ISIN for funds of interest to you, visit the funds.ft.com site and use the flexible search facilities to identify the funds of interest. The factsheet display for any given fund displays the ISIN along with other useful information.

This module is loaded by default on a Finance::Quote object. It’s also possible to load it explicity by placing ftfunds in the argument list to Finance::Quote->new().

Information obtained by this module may be covered by funds.ft.com terms and conditions See http://funds.ft.com/ and http://ft.com for details.

    Stocks And Indices

This module provides both the ftfunds and ukfunds fetch methods for fetching UK and Offshore Unit Trusts and OEICs prices and other information from funds.ft.com. Please use the ukfunds fetch method if you wish to have failover with future sources for UK and Offshore Unit Trusts and OEICs - the author has plans to develop Finance::Quote modules for the London Stock Exchange and Morningstar unit trust services. Using the ftfunds method will guarantee that your information only comes from the funds.ft.com website.

LABELS RETURNED
