Launched in March, the Virtus Mobile app is a resource for financial advisors, investors, and market followers, providing access to the firm's most up-to-date blogs and commentaries, including the monthly market indicator calendar from chief market strategist Joe Terranova.  It also offers a way for advisors to connect with Virtus' regional sales teams.

"Smartphones and tablets are essential, day-to-day tools for financial professionals, and the app is a testament to our commitment to deliver actionable market insight, in real time, through the most convenient channels," said Jeff Cerutti, executive vice president and head of retail distribution.  "It is an honor to be awarded the first Best Investment Mobile Application award."      

Virtus Mobile was judged against an overall standard of excellence in the Financial Services category, having been evaluated on seven criteria: creativity, impact, design, content, interactivity, ease of use, and use of the medium.

"We continue to look for additional features to expand the app's capabilities for subscribers," Cerutti noted.  "Investors and their advisors need to make well-informed decisions.  With the Virtus Mobile app, we are able to help them better interpret the constant fluctuations within the capital markets."   

Developed by CASE Partners of Hartford, the free app is available for download through the iTunes App Store and Google Play and is compatible with iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches using Apple ® operating system 4.3 or later, and with devices using the Androidâ„¢ operating system 2.2 or later.
