Recognising the increasing demand of personal trading services in China (including Hong Kong), Ix Fintech hopes that by developing a diversified and integrated option trading platform, investors will have a clear understanding of relevant investments. The team of professional and expert option traders at Ix Fintech is able to objectively answer any questions regarding the users’ investments.

“Ix Fintech is dedicated to promoting financial product literacy through the launch of one-stop option information app, ixOption.” said Ms. Irene Wong, founder and CEO of Ix Fintech. “The first phase of ixOption focuses on the development of financial technology education. Meanwhile, the team is committed to the research and development of artificial intelligence, investment regulations, know your client 3.0, big data analysis, FinMed (Financial and Medical) fields. We target to introduce new app features such as option learning aids and blockchain courses by the end of this year, to provide users with comprehensive and reliable financial technology information."
Given the volatility of the stock market and the influx of online financial analysis platforms, investors struggle with understanding and distinguishing the authenticity and objectivity of the marketing content. Ix Fintech understands that many Professionals, Managers, Executives and Businessmen (PMEB) including lawyers and accountants, have little knowledge on structured products and option trading, leading to difficulties when dealing with business matters. In view of this, Ix Fintech launched Hong Kong’s first option information app "ixOption".
Considering the needs of the investors, besides being able to analyse their investment habits and preferences, the app also provides real-time market information and prices for both Hong Kong and the mainland market which allows investors to have the first-mover advantage. ixOption focuses on risk management, trading and wealth management services and is committed to enhance the credibility and security of monetary transactions and investments to assist investors in making the best investment decisions.
