Investment platform AtlasTrend has launched a voice-activated personal investment assistant called Astro, challenging traditional institutions and approaches to investing money.
One of the first voice-activated fintech bots in Australia, Astro is available on Google Home, Google Home Mini and Google Assistant devices, and uses verbal commands to allow transactional capabilities for AtlasTrend investors, and provide users with real-time responses and information on AtlasTrend’s investment portfolios and general investment info.
Following Astro’s initial launch, the team is set to develop and roll-out additional capabilities throughout the year, further enhancing its functionality and user experience. Astro will inform users of AtlasTrend’s investments, help them improve their investment knowledge and keep up to date with global investing trends.
Investment markets can be daunting, and AI-powered Astro provides users with insights to help make sense of the investment landscape.
Consumers will also be able to review investment return information and reports, ask questions about AtlasTrend, and access the month’s most important AtlasTrend investment news and information.
AtlasTrend co-founder, Kent Kwan, said, “Astro is a friendly, at-home source of on-demand investment info, designed to help users quickly check-in on their investments, as well as improve financial literacy through on-demand access to components of The Atlas, AtlasTrend’s database of financial know-how.”
One of the biggest problems with the financial services industry is the barrier to entry for everyday Australians, Kwan said, and Astro helps cut through the jargon to make overseas investing more accessible.
