A Wall Street fintech firm is finally bringing its brokerage business North of the border.
New York trading platform Webull already operates in many countries, providing tens of millions of users access to equity trading and other financial tools.
Earlier this year, for example, Webull established footing in the United Kingdom.
Next, Webull continues to grab growth by the horns with a charge into Canada.
The fintech platform will now allow Canadian residents the ability to trade Canadian- and US-listed equities its app, according to a statement released by the firm.
Wall Street’s Webull functions squarely at the intersection of finance and technology, where it believes the future of all finance lies.
“Technology is the investor’s best friend,” the firm states online. “It vastly expands the human’s trading capabilities in terms of time, scale, and technique.”
From Webull, application of this tech-forward philosophy is rendered in the fintech’s Smart Advisor, which leverages artificial intelligence to automate investing through a personalized portfolio within an individual’s preferred risk tolerance.
“Our priority has always been to provide traders with the tools they need to make more informed decisions about their investments,” chief executive officer Anthony Denier stated last year. “We are excited to continue making advancements that further propel the industry forward.”
Other features include Paper Trading—a stock simulator that helps people test trading strategies without risking real capital on an actual stock exchange—and Charts & Tools, which offers an analytics dashboard enabling advanced trading strategies and data-crunching.
