In its continuing commitment to give institutional clients access to crucial financial information when and where they need it, Northern Trust has launched a new iPad application designed to provide executive-level users with performance, exposure and risk information they need in today’s mobile world.
The iPad app complements Northern Trust’s secure Passport® mobile site, which is optimized for the iPhone and BlackBerry and accessible to any smart phone. On the iPad, clients can review and share portfolio data, view account exposure by country and asset category, and can access the latest Northern Trust investment and research detail, including market summaries and video commentaries.
“Our institutional clients increasingly rely on mobile devices to receive the data and intelligence they need to mitigate risk and make informed investment decisions,” said Paul d’Ouville, Global Head of Product Management at Northern Trust. “We remain committed to not only improving our clients’ access to their data, but also highlighting key items and facilitating their ability to customize it according to their needs. As our clients adopt new technologies for business use, we will continue to improve their interaction with Northern Trust content via various Passport channels.”
Information available within Northern Trust's iPad app includes investment risk and performance measurement analyses ranging from sector and interest rate exposure to equity attribution. The application also leverages the inherent collaboration functionality within the iPad tablet.
“The Northern Trust iPad application joins our existing mobile site, desktop portal, and Data Direct access methods as part of our holistic information distribution strategy which is focused on meeting the needs of clients across multiple delivery channels," said Ted Grunberg, Head of Passport Product Development at Northern Trust. “New features, including expanded risk and performance reporting functionality, will be developed and added to the iPad app to enrich the experience for clients regardless of their location.”
