Market insights from Legg Mason’s new app
Legg Mason Global Asset Management has followed up the launch of its smartphone app last year and unveiled an app for iPad users.
The Legg Mason iPad app, available via iTunes, provides investors with regular market insights from its range of specialist asset managers and fund prices showing daily NAVs for its UK, Dublin and Luxembourg-domiciled funds.
Users can also receive news updates and get links to Legg Mason’s latest market commentaries, as well as view videos and webcasts featuring the latest interviews with portfolio managers.
Mike Evans, head of international marketing at Legg Mason Global Asset Management, said: “We are witnessing a sea-change in the way people consume information and, as a global business, we are committed to responding to this shift as investors around the world embrace digital technology.”
He said the iPad app would enable investors to access a wide range of information on Legg Mason’s funds, including daily prices, and view the latest news and insight from its portfolio managers.
For added functionality the new app, developed and powered by Kurtosys Systems Limited, enables investors to tailor content with a favourites page, streamlining the user experience.
The Legg Mason smartphone app, which was launched in March 2011, is available for Apple iOS, Blackberry and Google Android devices.
