Online trading platform Tiger Brokers (Singapore) will be launching its 8.0 mobile application as part of its eighth-anniversary celebrations.
The app will go live on July 1, which will provide users with access to market experts through live streaming sessions and knowledge hubs, such as Tiger Live.
“This is especially important at a time when market uncertainties and concerns of rising inflation and ongoing geopolitical tensions mean investors will have to be nimbler and better-informed in their decision-making,” reads the statement released by the company on June 14.
According to Tiger Brokers (Singapore), the launch of the app is a “significant milestone” for the platform, which has seen its customer base reach some 2.5 million customers worldwide as at May 2022, from the 1.8 million users the year before.
With the new app, users can now tailor their homepage and stock detail pages, according to their preferences, allowing them to focus more on the investments that matter to them.
Furthermore, the app will feature improved user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) designs, which facilitate ease of use and improve accessibility to frequently used features.
For seasoned traders, profit and loss analysis capabilities will improve transparency, even for more complex trades.
Eng Thiam Choon, CEO of Tiger Brokers (Singapore) commented, “Over the past eight years, we have used next-generation technology to offer investors low cost and unrivalled access to a fast-growing suite of investments products, across a wide range of securities and funds. At the same time, we have extended our offering to cover multiple global markets and currencies and have also rapidly expanded our range of ESG products on offer. To mark our eighth year since [our] founding, we are pleased to announce the launch of our 8.0 App which builds on our existing platform, to provide investors with greater access to a broader range of education and community tools and features.”
“We remain committed to promoting financial literacy and investor education as key pillars of our business and believe this to be especially important against today’s backdrop of volatile and uncertain financial markets. Fostering the creation of larger and stronger communities within our user base is also core to our values and we believe that the advanced features of the 8.0 App will facilitate the development of a thriving ecosystem of investors. Through the 8.0 App, users will be able to easily share and exchange trading ideas and insights, as well as news and research materials. We strongly envisage this being the key to better equipping our community with investment tools necessary to make better informed investment decisions.,” he adds.
