This helped National consolidate investment data into one, centralized portal that employees from each department could easily access. Investor Connect gave National the ability to post both investor statements and fund reports for investors to view.
Investment Central and Investor Connect are becoming our primary vehicles for gathering and storing data related to our assets. They allow greater communication between departments and reduce the frequency of questions about individual assets.
