Chicago

September 06, 2012

New features enhance customer experience, offer in-depth insights on market activity

Performance Trust Capital Partners today unveiled a new and improved website, expanding the financial services firm's capacity to deliver insights on investment strategies and breaking market news.

The website, located at www.performancetrust.com, now features a comprehensive "Knowledge Center," which offers institutional visitors access to a library of Performance Trust articles, up-to-date market facts, news, and commentaries. The site introduces a company video that provides insight into their goal of helping people make better decisions, as well as a glimpse into the Performance Trust culture. Additional features include an interactive timeline of the firm's history, a gallery of all Performance Trust education-based videos and media appearances, and information about further educational opportunities.

The launch comes just months after the completion of a new in-house television studio, which offers broadcast newsrooms the opportunity to gain immediate access to expert financial analysts to discuss breaking news in the markets, investment and trading strategies, political developments and their financial impact, and related topics.

The studio is ready to go live and available for booking via fiber or satellite transmission. To arrange for video feeds, please contact Adam Mesirow at Res Publica Group, 312-755-3523, or am@respublicagroup.com.

"There is a tremendous value in investing in technology and communications that allow us to educate our customers and ensure they are up-to-date and informed about what is happening in the financial services world and how it might be impacting them," CEO and co-founder Rich Berg said. "These new web features and the ability to have our leadership available to television stations and networks at a moment's notice will enable us to further improve our lines of communications."
