DeVere offers investment app in FinTech drive
Written by Hannah McGrath
Financial advisory firm deVere is bolstering its FinTech offering with the launch of a new investment app.
Available for Apple and Android, the app will offer its client base - largely made up of expatriates and international investors - a platform to monitor investments in real time, keep up to date with news that could impact returns and access to a chat system or direct line to an advisor.
Nigel Green, chief executive of deVere Group, said the company had taken the decision to develop its FinTech proposition after seeing a “seismic” shift in client expectations in the financial advisory industry.
He said: “Increasingly clients not only want bespoke financial advice from an adviser, they are also demanding personal instant access to their portfolio anywhere and at any time.
“They want all their financial services needs to be dealt with online and/or on their mobile devices.”
The move follows the launch of a series of app-based financial vehicles for the group this year, including deVere Vault, deVere Crypto and deVere Investment.
Green concluded: “FinTech is fundamentally redefining and reshaping the sector. It is helping us meet evolving client demands in our ever-more connected world and helping to fill the void left by traditional financial services companies.”
