The Hl Live iPad App Wins Best Financial Services Campaign at MOMAs

Thursday 22 May, 2014
HL Live for iPad, the number one funds and share trading app on the App Store in 2014, has been awarded the Best Financial Services Campaign at The Drum MOMA Awards 2014. Created for Hargreaves Lansdown by Mubaloo, the UK's leading enterprise mobility developer, the app has resulted in a drive of customer engagement and trades on mobile devices.

Chris Worle, Head of Digital, Hargreaves Lansdown ,

“The number of clients using the HL Live smartphone and iPad apps has been way above expectations. Over a quarter of a million downloads tells its own story. Mubaloo has been the ideal partner for us and this accolade is a testament to their intelligence, creativity, and ability to understand and work with the Hargreaves Lansdown business.”

After successfully designing and developing one of the first ever live trading apps on smartphone for Hargreaves Lansdown, Mubaloo was asked to extend their offering by building a brand new iPad app. The decision to move to iPad was based on customer feedback as visits to the HL website from iPads have increased more than 17-fold in the last 2 years. The app, which went live in December 2013, was downloaded 27,500 times in its first week and accounted for 2.3% of all trades.

The HL Live iPad app by Mubaloo is a customisable live investment trading app that enables users to manage their accounts, as well as place share and fund trades quickly and easily. The iPad app gives users another channel to manage their stocks and funds and find out up to date information about the financial marketplace. Users are also able to create a more personalised experience within the app by choosing their own tiles of information in order of relevancy.

Mark Mason, CEO and Founder, Mubaloo,

“HL Live for iPad was designed to be the easiest to use financial services trading app on the market. There is a huge amount of data and information being fed into the app, which needed to be displayed in a way that any user can access. The app has remained in the top 10 free finance apps on the App Store and is actively being used by non-Hargreaves clients as the go-to place for financial information.”

The MOMAs (marketing on mobile awards), organised by The Drum, identify all of the great work being done in mobile and awards those who are delivering effective strategies and campaigns. Here is the video which supported the award entry http://youtu.be/TJ71LxUx3-k
