NEW YORK and TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Computershare Limited (ASX: CPU), a leading financial services provider for the global securities industry, today announced the launch of a new, enhanced version of its Investor CentreTM website for North America. The free account-tool, used by more than 2.5 million shareholders in the US and Canada, will now feature improved navigation, simplified views of holdings and enhanced security measures.
"Continually investing in technology to improve the experience of our clients and their investors is at the core of what we do at Computershare," said Jay McHale, President of Equity Services for Computershare US. "Computershare began the process of updating the Investor Centre site by conducting extensive research with existing site users."
The information that came from this research helped target the primary needs of the shareholders who use the site – whether they frequently log in to review holdings, or use it sparingly for tax or other purposes.
"We wanted to make sure the investors who use the Investor Centre site enjoy the same level of data security they've come to expect from any financial services website, which is why we've continued to enhance our security protocols," said Margot Jordan, Senior Vice President of Investor Services for Computershare Canada. "At the same time, we wanted to offer a user experience beyond the norm for financial services – with clean design and more intuitive navigation."
Investors with holdings managed by Computershare can access the website at www.computershare.com/investor.
