MILAN, Italy, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MarketWall, a fintech company specialising in finance and trading IT solutions, has set up the new investment firm InvestoPro Sim.
The idea behind the project stems from a plan conceived by the shareholders of MarketWall – the Canadian artificial intelligence company AnalytixInsight (TSX-V:ALY; OTCQB:ATIXF), Intesa Sanpaolo (MI:ISP) and Marco Roscio Ricon, CEO of MarketWall and of the new entity – to create a highly innovative SIM dedicated to private investors intending to manage their assets independently, characterised by a wide range of investment tools and offers, the quality of the information flow and the ability to provide advanced digital solutions.
InvestoPro Sim, which received authorisation to trade from Consob, is launching InvestoPro.com, an online and digital trading platform that includes financial analyses, news, research, educational formats and other exclusive content created by teams of experts with the aid of artificial intelligence, high value tools that help investors familiarise themselves with the operating logics of the financial markets, receive guidance within a very wide range of offers and recognise opportunities that best match their objectives and risk profiles.
To date, thanks to the early launch of a beta phase in recent months, InvestoPro.com can already count a community of over 2.5 million visitors per month from all over the world through its channels: website, social network, smart TV, mobile app and progressive web app.
Intesa Sanpaolo customers will soon have the opportunity to access InvestoPro.com and activate the online trading service with their credentials.
InvestoPro.com is a multi-device platform characterised by intuitive and fast usability with a high level of customisation: investors can build their own customised user experience, combining features and contents according to their specific needs, thanks to very straightforward and user-friendly tools.
InvestoPro.com is at the same time a marketplace for third-party financial content that extends the range of information services available to users to support their investment decisions. The platform devotes ample space to training, providing training courses and a growing range of webinars that make it possible to make informed decisions and define investment strategies wisely and independently. The Virtual Trading feature also enables users to put into practice what they have learned and gain experience without running risks, by investing virtual capital.
Marco Roscio Ricon, CEO of MarketWall and InvestoPro Sim: “Technology pervades our everyday life: digitalisation, social networks and artificial intelligence are now essential aspects in the creation of innovative products and services. With this in mind, we have created InvestoPro, the first FinTech Sim. A first step as part of a broader disruptive innovation process that will soon see the offer of payment services, social trading and much more.”
