LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 1, 2022 / The COVID-19 pandemic has made a significant impact on the stock market and investor pool. In fact, more than 26% of all investors in the market today became investors in 2020 or later. With the trend towards remote work bringing more people online than ever before, the global pandemic will continue to bring a surge of new investors into the market. The new investing patterns and behaviors that they bring may be changing the market and the way many people invest moving forward. However, there seems to be one question still missing in this burgeoning new investor philosophy: where and how to begin.
FinTech startup Tickar Financial believes that the future of investing will be automated and augmented. The industry has already taken several major steps in this direction, with apps and platforms making investment more accessible than ever. Tickar has been pushing to spark this shift in investing philosophy for almost two years now.
Leveling the Playing Field for Investors
Conceptualized in 2020 by founder Jeremiah J. Brown, the company's mission was to democratize investing and level the playing field between Wall Street and Main Street. Tickar envisioned a future where everyday investors would no longer need to pay advisors six figures for stock market guidance. Instead of waiting around for that day to come, the team decided to work towards creating it for themselves.
According to Tickar, the best way to level the aforementioned field is to furnish everyday investors with the same tools and expertise that Wall Street has at its disposal. The team believes that the only thing investors should need to get involved in the stock market is access to a smartphone.
Taking Advantage of New Technologies
Tickar created an app combining new technologies, such as augmented reality and machine learning, to potentially enhance the investing process for beginners investors. The Tickar FinTech app incorporates AR and the metaverse into its scan, learn, and invest approach. The Tickar team believes that these elements have the potential to simplify the investing experience for all, no matter their level of experience or expertise.
The Tickar app accumulated close to 25,000 downloads within the first week of launch, a feat the company is very proud of. "That's almost 25,000 new investors learning how to navigate the stock market," one team member said. "We're so happy to be able to reach so many people and provide them with the tools they need to start investing."
Pursuing the Future of Investment Advising
Speaking with the founder Jeremiah J Brown, he mentioned that Tickar is "on a mission to be an investment advisor in your pocket", and incorporates the metaverse trend and AR into this vision. The team believes that incorporating this technology can make its vision a modern reality. Promoting financial literacy is a key part of the app's purpose, and so far, it has garnered considerable interest from new investors across the globe. Tickar's team expects to reach close to one million users by the end of 2027.
The company is partnering exclusively with brokerage companies that share similar missions. It has already begun integrating Robinhood, E*Trade, and TD Ameritrade into its platform. In a world where investing is often opaque and complicated, Tickar stands to change this by empowering users to think independently and invest with confidence.
