Markit, a global financial information services firm, announced on Tuesday that it has added global fixed income research from Nomura in the latest version of its iPad app.
The Markit Hub iPad app is an extension of the company’s Web-based research platform, Markit Hub. The Web platform was first launched in 2002 under the name Bond Hub, by a consortium of investment banks, Heidi Johnson, managing director of Markit Hub told AdvisorOne.
“It was primarily focused when it was founded as a way to access fixed income research, but in the past year we’ve increased access to a combination of asset classes, including equities,” Johnson said.
The iPad app was launched in April 2011 and allows users to access research, commentary, news, data and analytics from Nomura, among other providers like Roubini and Dow Jones.
