Sharebroker Forsyth Barr has launched an iPhone app so clients can keep track of recommendations on the 60 companies it follows on the NZX sharemarket.

The app, which has been added to the hundreds of thousands of apps available at the Apple iStore, will also let users keep track of NZX share prices and market announcements.

"Markets are dynamic and they don't stop when you are on holiday or tied up in business meetings for a day. We designed this app to ensure our clients and the public can be connected to key information on the go," said Forsyth Barr managing director Neil Paviour-Smith.

"As we know, context matters and in addition to market pricing and news we have added in our investment view for all to see and detailed research for clients of Forsyth Barr."

The app will let users browse Forsyth Barr's research reports on listed companies.

There will also be access to research on investment strategy and fixed interest.

Trish Oakley, head of product development and marketing, said the development of the app followed a redesign of the Forsyth Barr website and reflected its commitment to the online space.
