Phone Feature Gives On-the-Go Investors a Way to Tap into Investing Ideas
San Mateo, CA, Dec. 21, 2012
Motif Investing, a pioneer in ideas-based investing, announced today the launch of its Motif Explorer mobile application for iPhone users. With Motif Explorer, anyone can have on-the-go access to a catalog of nearly 100 theme-based portfolios of stocks and ETFs, called motifs, which are housed on the Motif Investing Web site.
Investors do not have to be customers to use Motif’s real-world, theme-based approach to investing through Explorer. Investors can easily create favorites and get more details about any investing idea they like. The app features full descriptions of each motif’s investment thesis and segment construction, as well as up-to-date charts and information on performance, volatility and valuation.
Some popular motifs, which are composed of up to 30 stocks, include Biotech Breakthroughs, Digital Dollars, Couch Commerce and Fighting Fat. A Motif investing account can be opened on their website with no minimum, and customers can buy motifs for as little as $250 with a total commission of $9.95.
“The new Motif Explorer takes what was already a great user experience to a whole new level,” said Hardeep Walia, Motif Investing’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “Investors are increasingly researching ideas with their mobile devices, and we believe this first foray into a mobile experience gives our current and soon-to-be customers a convenience they’ll appreciate.”
You can download the Motif Explorer mobile app now from Apple’s app store.
