SEATTLE, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In conjunction with the launch of its new name, logo and redesigned website, Capital One ShareBuilder today introduced a selection of new interactive educational and research tools to help investors make informed investing decisions.
ShareBuilder's new Knowledge Center features expanded content from SmartMoney.com and S&P Capital IQ, plus interactive demonstrations focused on a variety of topics ranging from planning for retirement to trading stocks, options, mutual funds and ETFs. The content is tailored to investors of all levels from first-time investors to advanced, and users have the ability to share, rate and print content directly from the Knowledge Center.
ShareBuilder has also enhanced its research with the introduction of Markit ResearchTeam Consensus Reports, which compile ratings from more than 20 independent research providers, weighing each provider's ratings based on historical accuracy, and deliver consolidated consensus rating reports for individual securities. Additionally, ShareBuilder recently added WSJ Live video news from The Wall Street Journal, which is refreshed daily, archived and searchable by topic or key word.
"We're focused on adding powerful, yet easy-to-use tools and resources designed to help both new and seasoned investors make more informed decisions," said Dan Greenshields, President of Capital One ShareBuilder, Inc. "We're thrilled to be part of Capital One, and we're taking our platform to the next level—delivering quality tools to help Americans invest in today's markets so they can plan their financial futures and live their lives better."
The company also announced plans for a new iPad app set to launch later this month, which will offer many of the same features and functionality as the website, but on a fully customizable dashboard designed for the 10-inch tablet. Through the app, users can look at the markets and news, do research, place trades, and transfer money instantly from linked accounts.
"Our customers are becoming increasingly comfortable using mobile channels, with more than 10 percent of total trades placed via mobile device today," Greenshields said. "We believe mobile is the new frontier for investing, but regardless of the channel a customer chooses, we want to help ensure that the experience is great and that the interaction is as seamless and intuitive as possible.
