We can’t remember the last time we did a monthly round up and there was nothing much to say!
**takes deep breath**
Firstly, on October 1st, media buzz was opened up to the entire index (was top 200 only). This means any player can win media dividends across the index.
Secondly, on October 18th, Football Index announced the new dividend structure and renaming of match days.
Gold days (previously triple match day) now offers up to 16p per share for star man! And if he’s a EPL player, there is also the added bonus of 3p media dividends.
If this happened to a player like Kevin De Bruyne who is currently priced at £5.50, then that’s a 3.45% return in dividends from just 1 game/day. Now the probability of him winning multiple times means returns could be huge even for premium players over the course of just this season.
Here at IndexGain, we had an announcement of our own. powered by Opta, we are now able to provide reports for every single match event on the match day scoring matrix.
The first report, Advanced Player Screener (OMD) allows you to view every single player on the index and view scoring breakdowns for every match they have participated in. Not only that, but you can also view aggregated data such “who has the most key passes per game?” or “crosses per game” or “shots on target”.
Premium members can log in now and play with the report. If you’re not a member then you can watch this video to see what data is available and how to use it to help find the next investment for your portfolio.
We’ve had some great feedback so far!
