Growth Update: helping you find investments faster ⚡

It’s great to be sharing my first growth update, since joining the team last week :wave:

Deeper insights

This week we’ve been adding more details about stocks and funds, that’ll help you to find securities to invest in faster, evaluate the trustworthiness of a company’s accounts and their exposure to economic changes in different regions.

Speed is key when searching for new investments and industry classifications are a useful filter of course but we want to give you more sophisticated alternatives too. So when the new app launches, you’ll be able to search for stocks based on sector e.g. consumer or financial. We’ll also list a fund’s theme, which might be ESG, water or ageing population etc. If there’s particular themes that you’d like us to add, let us know :ear:

We rely on company’s financial results to judge their performance but sometimes they can be misleading. So while deciding what to invest in, you’ll be able to see how a company ranks for accounting strength compared to the rest of our universe. This is based on a number of factors that indicate whether a company is sticking to accounting best practises or if their financial results need some extra scrutiny.

Lastly, I won’t mention the B word but obviously there’s a few reasons why you might want to check which countries or regions the majority of a company’s revenue is coming from right now and we’ll make that easy to evaluate, with a breakdown of company’s revenue by region :world_map:

Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing collections of securities from our universe, based on theme, sector or other characteristics, such as how frequently a company pays dividends. Join the community to see those first.
