Interactive Data, a provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, has launched PrimeTerminal Mobile, a BlackBerry application that enables users to follow developments in the financial markets in real time and monitor their own portfolios at any time and from anywhere.
PrimeTerminal Mobile offers access to a broad range of real-time quotes, historical and reference data, charts, business news and market overviews. Portfolios and watchlists can easily be accessed to check the performance of individual positions or an entire portfolio, and relevant news, events and other information on a specific security can be quickly retrieved, providing added value when making investment decisions.
“Investors, financial advisors and wealth managers need to stay in close touch with the financial markets while they are on the move,” said Carsten Dirks, global managing director of wealth management products at Interactive Data. “With PrimeTerminal Mobile, we can provide our customers with much of the time-sensitive content and functionalities defined within their desktop solution. This type of access can help them to quickly adjust their investment decisions in changing conditions even if they are out of the office.”
