CircleBlack, www.circleblack.com, the financial data aggregation and empowerment platform for financial advisors and their clients, today announced that it has extended its mobile offering to Android users. This latest development moves the technology platform one step closer to its stated objective of making wealth reporting simple, smart, relevant, proactive and mobile.

In this mobile digital age, CircleBlack is making it possible for investors to access current, relevant and reliable information about their wealth when and where they want.

"CircleBlack is the digital platform that makes today's financial advisor more efficient and keeps them closely connected to their clients. We help advisors and their clients focus on what is important in a clean and simple way, allowing them to stay above the day to day market noise. It's more important than ever for clients and their advisors to remain connected through mobile enabled technology" says John Michel, CEO, CircleBlack. "We believe that today's financial advisors and their firms need to take advantage of the latest technology available to them to remain relevant and competitive, and, we're helping them do just that."

The Android version of the mobile offering has an equally sleek look and feel as the iOS version. CircleBlack's mobile application provides actionable intelligence about client portfolios, performance reporting on both assets under management and assets held away, and market share information that help advisors better manage and increase client relationships. The cloud-based platform also offers automated updates and push notifications which help demonstrate that the portfolio is being supervised, enhancing advisors' relationships with clients, providing grounds for more frequent and fulfilling interactions, and keeping the advisor top of mind.

"We live in an 'on-the-go' world, so our objective here is better connectivity, adjustable based on client/advisor preferences" said Carlos Simoes, chief technology officer. "CircleBlack is standing at the crossroads of electronic and human interaction -- by extending our mobile platform, we're empowering investors to take control of their wealth without the limitations of time and place."

According to the 2014 comSCORE Smartphone Subscriber Market Share report, Android was the #1 smartphone platform in December 2014, with a 53.1% market share. With this new offering, users are now given the flexibility of choosing the smartphone that is right for them.

Advisors that leverage CircleBlack's technology provide investors with richer, more connected wealth management relationships.
