As mobile investing activity rises, many look to wearables.
Tokyo, April 25, 2016 — Nakajima Holdings, a respected investment advisor on the financial markets announced today that the findings on mobile investing behaviour from a survey it deployed last month. Insights extracted from a representative sample of Nakajima Holdings’ investors indicate robust mobile investing and trading activity:
– Mobile investing is essential. More than half of all investors, and nearly all investors under the age of 40, categorize the ability to invest on the go as “critical.”
– Mobile investing activity has increased. A third of all investors use their smart phones for investing purposes very or somewhat frequently, a notably positive development since last year. Half of all investors use an investing or trading app two to three times per week.
– More than half of all investors, a proportion increasing inversely to the age group of the respondents, plan to increase the use of their smart phones for investing purposes over the next year.
Checking stock quotes remains the most popular investing activity performed on smart phones, followed by monitoring a portfolio, and checking on market movement.
The study measured interest in using wearables for investing. Although still in their early days, one in three investors want wearable’s for monitoring portfolios. Investor segments most interested in wearables include: Active traders; investors under 40; and female investors.
“Investors have spoken – mobile is indispensable. Today’s savvy investors want to be on the cutting edge of digital,” said Yasu Aso, Managing Director, Nakajima Holdings Alternative Investment Services. “They expect to effortlessly track market movements and manage their portfolios while on the go, from bite-sized information on wearables, to rich immersive content on smart phones and tablets.”
