DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the first time ever, everyday retail investors will be able to directly invest in fixed-income via fractional corporate bonds and treasuries with the pending launch of Apex Fintech Solutions’ new fixed-income investing platform. With bond yields continuing to rise, investors have been clamoring to add the portfolio diversification and yield that fixed-income can offer but industry and structural barriers have historically excluded retail investors from the opportunity. Soon, all investors will be able to invest in fixed-income fractionally as they can with equities today with this soon-to-be-launched offering from Apex Fintech Solutions (“Apex”), the fintech for fintechs powering innovation and the future of digital wealth management.
“There is no reason that the average investor should be left on the sidelines when it comes to fixed-income,” comments Bill Capuzzi, CEO of Apex. “Our entire mission at Apex is to democratize investing which is why we knew we had to clear an easier path for retail investors to fixed-income. Finally, you’ll be able to buy a few dollars worth of bonds the same way you can buy a few dollars worth of your favorite stock. This isn’t just a win for Apex – this is a win for every investor and every fintech empowering them. This is further validation of our commitment to innovation for the retail investor.”
This is the industry’s first fractional fixed-income investing platform. Historically, retail investors have not had easy access to the fixed-income markets which have largely been the domain of institutional investors. Previously, the fixed-income markets were dominated by large market participants, which meant large trade sizes, higher minimum investments, pricing opacity, and dealer-to-dealer relationships. Now, any retail investor can easily add fixed-income into their portfolios through fractional corporate bonds in a modern, equity-like experience. The offering is in development and due to launch in 2023. Developed in collaboration with Moment Technology Inc., the platform enables fintechs to extend an easier, low-cost, fractional fixed-income investing experience for their clients.
Jenny Just, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at PEAK6, Apex’s parent company, comments, “This isn’t just a product launch – this is a milestone for every investor out there who’s not getting a fair shot at investing. I’m inspired by what Apex is doing because this helps elevate more people into such a valuable part of investing. The ability for people – and not just high net-worth investors – to easily add fixed-income and diversify their portfolios is a game-changer.”
The platform is currently pending launch – for more information and to join the waiting list, visit this page.
