HALO Technologies has announced plans to push into global markets, starting with the incorporation of key United States market indices into the HALO platform signaling a new opportunity for Australians to invest directly into global markets using the same tools as professional fund managers.
These initiatives are good news for both Australian and global investors. Australians will be given access to global markets on the HALO platform, and the tool itself will be made available overseas.
Providing ordinary investors with professional tools
The fund manager who created the HALO platform, Nicolas Bryon, is a true believer in the its potential to change the investment landscape.
Much of what we do as fund managers is perceived as complex and mysterious by the average investor. While the lack of transparency doesn’t help their clients, this is the way most professional fund managers like it. HALO pulls back the curtain and empowers investors by giving them the same tools as the pros through an interface that is intuitive and easy to use
said Nic Bryon, creator of HALO.
US market indices now available through HALO
HALO has empowered large numbers of self-directed investors to successfully establish themselves in Australian markets, but until now, their investment universe has been restricted to ASX listed companies. However, 98% of listed investment opportunities sit outside of Australia.
While the ASX is dominated by banks, miners and retailers, growth-oriented industries like technology, pharmaceuticals, biotech, entertainment and luxury goods largely exist outside of Australia. Now, investors will be able to apply the same HALO technical overlay and analysis methods to overseas market indices, with detailed historical information and live trading data to be available
said Mr Bryon.
The push into global markets marks a significant boost in HALO’s reach, both for Australian investors wanting exposure to offshore companies and for offshore investors seeking superior analysis tools for application in their home markets.
The HALO App will, known as HALO Mobile, will act as a companion App complementing the capabilities of the web-based program, while also being available as a standalone tool for newer investors. It delivers professional functionality to investors on the move and marks an intention to support younger investors on their native platform.
HALO Mobile represents the first meeting of mobile investment technology – typically used by newer investors and highly automated – and high-level stock-picking analysis. The release of this App will create a high margin revenue source with almost unlimited global reach. It brings the fundamental, quantitative, macro and event analysis capabilities to investor’s fingertips, allowing them to make investment decisions much faster and easier.
HALO is positioning itself as an essential tool for the self-directed investor and a must have for every financial adviser in Australia and around the world. It’s unique combination and overlay of data makes it the most comprehensive stock analysis tool available to investors in the market today.
