Enskilda Securities has developed a new mobile service for its institutional clients offering them a complete Research service over their WAP phones. At the same time, a new service allowing investors to download research reports to hand-held computers is being launched. The two new services are being marketed as Mobile Research On-Line.
Enskilda Securities' clients will be able to receive research, key figures and stock quotes directly to their WAP phones. This means that portfolio managers and investors will also receive relevant information when they are out of the office.
Björn Jansson, Global Head of Research at Enskilda Securities, says:
"The Nordic countries are at the frontline in developing and using mobile Internet applications and Enskilda Securities has conducted extensive research on how this new technique affects phone manufacturers, telecom operators and program developers. Now we have also initiated a case study by developing a WAP service of our own for our institutional clients. A project which has given us not only a unique new service to offer our clients but also an even better insight into how the new mobile Internet industry affects the market."
The following functionality is offered by the new services.
· Stock quotes over a WAP phone from some 20 European and American stock exchanges.
· Possibility to generate 15 different key figures on a WAP phone for any of the 500 companies in 13 countries that Enskilda Securities has research coverage on.
· Possibility to view on the phone a brief summary of the research reports published continually during the day. Every day the 70 analysts at Enskilda Securities publish between 10 and 30 reports. A more detailed summary can be downloaded to a client's hand-held computer, e.g. to a Palm Pilot or Windows CE computer.
· Possibility to generate a chart on the phone, showing the share price performance for the past 30 days for any company.
