This is worldflow’s first partnership with a US organisation and this app follows the launch of the EuroIRP App in June. ‘Investorside App’ allows institutional investors to access co-mingled Investment Research over a range of mobile devices, through a single sign-on. Depending on user preferences, content can be sorted by provider name, sector or date.

Pat Shea, Executive Director of Investorside Research Association says “As the number of customers accessing research from multiple devices continues to grow, we are delighted to provide our members with this new free service in partnership with worldflow. Our mission at Investorside is to promote research that is financially aligned with investor interests – and being able to provide this over an intuitive and easy-to-customise app gives our members and their clients another channel with which to access this independent, investor-focused research.”

Steve Jarrett Director at worldflow comments "As new ways to distribute content continue to emerge, so does demand for investment research. This partnership between worldflow and Investorside Research Association brings together the best of both organisations – award-winning research and cutting-edge technology - providing all member research companies with a new distribution channel for their independent research without prohibitive capital expenditure or disruption to existing distribution.”

The app can be downloaded for free from Apple iTunes store beginning today.
