Bloomberg has launched the Bloomberg App Portal, a new platform that gives Bloomberg subscribers access to a range of specialty tools and applications delivering data and news from the Bloomberg Professional service.
Applications on the Bloomberg App Portal are developed by software companies, financial institutions, academics and other third parties. The Bloomberg App Portal enables Bloomberg subscribers to enhance their user experience by adding specialty features and tools that complement those available on the Bloomberg Professional service.
Currently, there are more than 45 applications available on the Bloomberg App Portal across a variety of categories including, data analysis, news and research, portfolio management and risk analysis, valuation and pricing, data visualisation and technical analysis. Institutional clients can also use the Bloomberg App Portal to deploy proprietary software tools to their own employees and clients.
“Software developers with a great idea, but limited global reach, can work with Bloomberg to get in front of financial professionals around the world virtually overnight,” said Stanley Young, chief executive officer (CEO) of Bloomberg’s enterprise products and solutions business. “Our intention is to complement Bloomberg’s existing functionality with third-party applications that enable our clients to achieve success.”
