Investors may choose to invest in the funds based on their requirements such as returns, cash liquidity and risk appetite within a single portal.

The new product expands the existing products offered by the online brokerage including the six global exchanges, equities, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), futures and stock options.

“The Covid-19 pandemic fundamentally changed the trading and investment landscape today. Investors of today are now fully comfortable with investing online — not just Gen Zs, but throughout the investor market,” says Eng Thiam Choon, CEO of Tiger Brokers Singapore.

“We at Tiger Brokers want to ensure that we offer a seamless investing experience to our investors while strengthening our offerings to keep them engaged. On the other hand, we are looking to be the go-to online brokerage for traditional investors to explore a hybrid investment portfolio,” Eng adds.

“We are excited to expand our business in Asia by working with Tiger Brokers. Over the past few years we’ve seen significant growth in markets like Singapore and Hong Kong, so partnering with leading trading firms in the region like Tiger is the logical next step for us,” says Pierce Crosby, General Manager of TradingView.

“While focused on Singapore today, we think Tiger is a great fit for our various communities in the Asia region as well, and we look forward to further expansion in 2021,” he adds.
