The panels are slimmer and mounted at a flat angle against the side of the building. The previous ticker had to be angled down because of its older LED technology.
As well as displaying stock prices, the ticker can be used to provide information relating to special events ranging from community, sporting, business and cultural activities, along with significant announcements relevant to the greater Wellington population.

“The waterfront has always been a centre for commerce in the capital. Having NZX here adds to the variety of buildings and shows Wellington is a business-focussed city.
