The Bell Direct Apple Watch app will allow investors to identify new opportunities and obtain detailed ASX security quotes while monitoring their portfolios.

Bell Direct chief operating officer Lee Muco said app updates will introduce smart notifications and seek to incorporate feedback from clients.

“We’re continuously looking to identify innovative, smarter ways in which we can help our clients manage their trading and investing,” Mr Muco said. “We’re striving to make investing as smart and effortless as possible.

“Apple has said  its watch is their most personal device ever and similarly we believe that for our clients, there are few things more personal than taking control of their financial future,” he said.

“We saw great promise in the potential for the Apple Watch to make many aspects of our daily lives a little more effortless. With that in mind, we set about developing a simple and elegant app.”
