Merrill Edge announced a comprehensive redesign of its mobile app that lets investors personalize their mobile experience on iPhone or Android devices.
Clients will benefit from better navigation, dynamic help capabilities and heat maps showing key investment trends, as well as interactive charts and streamlined investing capabilities as a result of the redesign, Bank of America Merrill Lynch says.
“We know our clients are on the move, and we are right there with them, offering a bird’s eye view of the market and the guidance they need to plan for their financial goals,” said Aron Levine, head of Merrill Edge, in a statement. “We are continually developing innovative ways to serve clients and to make their financial lives easier.”
The new mobile capability includes access to Merrill Edge’s Guidance & Retirement Center, which provides resources, interactive tools and calculators to help with planning for retirement, investing, paying for college and other major life events.
Merrill Edge is a streamlined investment service that provides access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch along with Bank of America banking.
Prudential Investments Changing To PGIM Investments
Prudential Investments will change its name to PGIM Investments effective Monday, April 3.
Prudential Investments, with $82 billion in assets under management as of Dec. 31, is the retail manufacturer and distribution arm of PGIM, the $1 trillion global investment management business of Prudential Financial.
The names and ticker symbols for the company’s mutual funds will remain the same.
The name change more closely aligns Prudential Investments with PGIM. The change also allows the firm to adopt a single name globally. The company already operates as PGIM Investments outside the U.S. with its UCITS platform.
The renaming follows the recent rebranding efforts of Prudential Investment Management to PGIM in January 2016, Prudential Real Estate Investors to PGIM Real Estate in May 2016, and Prudential Fixed Income to PGIM Fixed Income in January 2017.
