Presentation Studio makes it possible to create highly customized reports and presentations that reflect a company’s brand. Easy-to-use tools help build communications ranging from fact sheets for individual investments to a complete workbook comparing multiple managers. Users select report components from a library of professionally designed charts, data tables, and graphs that quickly communicate complex investment information. Supporting data comes from Morningstar’s database, as well as from imported proprietary investment data. Available charts present data for single investments, comparisons of two investments, or an entire lineup.

An optional web-based Report Portal helps firms make sure their sales groups, advisors, consultants, and global teams always have access to consistent, up-to-date communications. Administrators at the firm level can create branded and customized templates for product fact sheets, pitchbooks, and more, then distribute them simultaneously to groups everywhere. For flexibility, administrators can build in specific customization options, such as investments or benchmarks, so end users can adjust their reports to meet changing needs. No matter where they’re located, salespeople, advisors, or consultants need only to log in, find relevant templates, and adapt them as required. The reports display well on mobile devices such as the iPad®, for easy presentation to clients. Firms can also gather feedback from the Report Portal to determine how often users are downloading specific templates and which investments they’ve included in the reports.
