Russell Investments has launched an iPad-friendly version of its Helping Advisors web site.

Launched in 2009, the website gives advisors access to tools such as the Economic Indicators Dashboard and the Business Cycle Index.

A 2010 study by Cerulli Associates showed that more than two-thirds of asset managers planned to introduce downloadable applications for mobile equipment, said Timothy Noonan, managing director, capital market insights for Russell’s US advisor-sold business.

“In a similar vein, we developed our iPad-optimized version of Helping Advisors in direct response to feedback we heard from financial advisors — that mobile computing devices help them meet their client needs more rapidly," he added.
