An investing platform can be referred to as an equity trading account, a fund trading account. They are online or app-based services that allow you to keep all your investments in one location. In addition also your trading history and investments you’ve purchased or sold.
Investment platforms have two different categories. Those that allow you to decide on the specific investments you will make. Or, those that will build a portfolio or wrap investments for you based on your investment goals and risk attitude.
The investment platform chooses the available investments.
Many investment platforms often offer their clients news, collaborative resources and forums. Hence, the idea of using an investment platform is to monitor and customize your investment choices to suit you. However, this ensures all your investments are made on a ‘execution-only’ basis, making you solely responsible for these choices, and if you suffer any losses, you will have no insurance or comeback.
