Legg Mason launches app for iPad
Legg Mason Global Asset Management has launched an app for iPad users, which provides investors with daily pricing data as well as market views from its asset managers.
The data pricing covers Legg Mason’s daily net asset values for its UK, Dublin and Luxembourg domiciled funds.
The market commentary includes access to videos and webcasts. Users of the app can tailor a “favourites page” with more specific content.
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. “
“The success of our smartphone app since launch last year has clearly demonstrated the appetite for ‘on-the-go’ fund data and we will continue to seek ways to make our content easily accessible to clients.”
