Pyxis Mobile, a leading provider of wireless investment software, today announced the availability of mAnalyst, a real-time research management tool for the analyst community.
For use with any BlackBerry from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM), mAnalyst becomes an extension of the sophisticated systems users have come to rely on while in the office.
In today's competitive market, research analysts must have access to real-time research and portfolio holdings at all times, from any location. Until now, market analysts were forced to view portfolio holdings and tax lot information by printing numerous reports while on the road. All too often assistants are asked to monitor activity and market data relative to the managers' directives and notify them via email or phone.
mAnalyst offers a unique solution to this problem by allowing market analysts to access disparate data sources including industry-specific news, sell-side research, and exposure analysis from their handheld. By extending these, enterprise and market users obtain immediate access to all their critical data. The net result is analysts who make better decisions, based on integrated market research and portfolio holdings-from anywhere at anytime. Via their mAnalyst Dashboard, users can access:
- Assets under management
- Open orders
- User-defined alerts and notifications
- Profit and loss
- Compliance violations
- Research notes, and more
"Research Analysts require the most up-to-date market and performance news possible. We built mAnalyst with these needs in mind," said Todd Christy, Chief Technology Officer, Pyxis Mobile. "This product is also the next logical step for Pyxis Mobile by pushing mPlatform deeper into the core of investment management. Whether institutional investors, wholesalers, fund managers, or corporate management, we understand the specific needs of these business units across the financial enterprise."
