BMO InvestorLine has announced the launch of its free mobile investing app for its self-directed online investing clients. The new app is available for Apple, Blackberry and Android devices or any browser enabled phone.
The secure and easy-to-use mobile investing app allows self-directed BMO InvestorLine clients to access their holdings page, view real-time quotes and charts, and execute equity, option and mutual fund trades - anytime and anywhere. The app offers more access to their portfolios, while providing the opportunity for on-the-go decision making. Additionally, when the app is in landscape mode, clients can view even more features and information.
"We're consistently working towards giving our clients greater control over their investments," said Viki Lazaris, President and CEO, BMO InvestorLine. "With the launch of this mobile app, it's easier and more convenient for our clients to manage their finances - providing flexibility to suit their busy schedules."
According to a recent BMO study, 68 per cent of Canadians own a mobile device, with 70 per cent of those saying they use mobile banking apps. Of that 70 per cent, nearly three-quarters (72 per cent) say they use them on a weekly or daily basis.
"The adoption rate of mobile banking continues to increase, showing that there is a growing appetite for this type of technology," said Ms. Lazaris. "We are committed to continuing to evolve with the needs of Canadian investors. With our new mobile investing app, clients can now take advantage of market opportunities no matter where they are."
