The app, which is the first of its kind in the German market, offers a wide range of digital services. For example, it allows investors to easily manage personal certificate portfolios and track the lifecycle and performance of investment and leverage products while on the go. Investors can also issue and immediately buy customized certificates for their portfolio right in the app. Custody account push notifications update investors on events relevant to their products as well as market opportunities from the Vontobel blog. The new app is available as a free download for Apple and Android smartphones.

Once registered, the Vontobel deritrade app helps investors set up a profile with their personal investing preferences. Based on this profile, investors receive – thanks to Vontobel’s SmartGuide technology – personalized product suggestions every day, along with all relevant product details. Investors no longer have to spend so much time and energy selecting products, but can respond more quickly to market movements. They can also see what certificates are currently popular and being actively traded within the Vontobel deritrade community. The app is integrated with the Vontobel certificate blog, which contains daily posts on investment ideas, market opportunities, product information, infographics, or video and audio podcasts.

"The Vontobel deritrade app takes our certificate universe mobile and gives smartphone users access to our world-class expertise in certificates and leverage products. Today, private investors can search for Vontobel certificates and reverse convertible bonds, find product inspiration based on their investment preferences, issue customized products, and set up a certificate portfolio that they can monitor with an extensive, personalized notification service without regard for any time or space constraints," said Roger Studer, Head of Vontobel Investment Banking. "No one has ever before launched this combination in the German market."
