Investment Portal

Efficient, inter­active, web-based publi­cation of data-intensive content

17 Apr 24

The Investment Portal prepares and displays a wide variety of market and research data as well as our own editorial content.

In use for almost a decade

As one of its first major projects, Datahouse created the Investment Portal for a major bank. Since then, the appli­cation has grown steadily and been expanded in terms of both its design and its functions. The Investment Portal is used as the mouthpiece of the investment office and is the first port of call for customer advisors with queries on investment topics.


The Investment Portal acts as a funnel for data from a wide variety of sources. Hetero­geneous data is homogenised, prepared and updated with a high degree of automation. This reduces the amount of unstructured data signi­fi­cantly and enables employees to operate quickly and efficiently.


Indivi­dually tailored reports are generated on the basis of the homogenised data. The output includes, amongst other things, reports in PDF form, Excel lists, statistical graphics as well as the oppor­tunity to make infor­mation accessible to third-party systems via a REST interface.

Extranet and intranet

The Investment Portal is a platform tailored to your needs for the publi­cation and maintenance of your corporate infor­mation, enabling your analyses, news, market data, videos and other content to be prepared, structured and distributed in a target group-specific manner. Because of its autonomous structure and multi-client capability, the Investment Portal is suitable for use on both an intranet and an extranet.

Content management

The platform- and device-independent software facilitates the creation, editing and presen­tation of content and data. Thanks to its intuitive user interface, you don’t need any programming skills or HTML knowledge to administer the system.

„No matter how well you plan, new information can often cause projects and specifications to change and develop. This requires flexibility, even during project implementation. Datahouse offers this flexibility by taking customer requirements into consideration and jointly developing uncomplicated solutions, as well as by having short decision-making pathways. In doing so it offers important advantages in comparison to larger competitors.“
