Morgan Stanley launches financial technology app for iPhone and iPad

25 August 2010

Morgan Stanley has launched an app for the iPhone and iPad which will enable investors to access financial research while on the move.

According to the investment bank, its institutional client-base will be able to use the Morgan Stanley Research App to view a number of reports on currencies, fixed income markets and over 2,600 stocks.

FX Pulse, Best Ideas, Global Debates Playbook and Investment Perspectives will be among the publications accessible via the new piece of mobile technology software.

Barry Hurewitz, chief operating officer of Investment Research at Morgan Stanley, said: “This pioneering app provides instant access to Morgan Stanley's unique research platform anytime, anywhere on the mobile Internet.”

He added that the new technology utilises “market intelligence to identify the investor debates driving a stock; scenarios accounting for a full range of plausible outcomes; and evidence-based research that helps investors maximize the returns for the risks they choose to take".

Institutional clients will be able to tailor their investment profiles to ensure they only receive investment reports relevant to them.

The app will be available for free via the iPhone and iPad App Store.
