Markit and Deutsche Bank said they are providing financial research through a single application for iPad users.

The Markit Hub Financial Research app will give institutional investors simple, portable access to any research from Markit they are entitled to receive.

Deutsche Bank also will make its research available on the Markit platform. Additional research providers will be added, Markit said.

"As financial market participants use the iPad increasingly as part of their daily workflow, the Markit Hub iPad app will provide substantial benefits to the consumers and providers of institutional research, data and analytics,” said Markit president Kevin Gould.

The Markit Hub app provides access to institutional research, data and analytics.  Users are able to search content across providers and categories, create alerts, and save and annotate documents. 

Markit Hub serves 250,000 users at more than 14,000 investment firms around the world.
