RAKUTEN Trade Sdn Bhd will be hosting a free Market Outlook seminar titled ‘What’s Hot This Year!’ at Loft 29 in Church Street Ghaut in George Town, Penang, on April 11.
The seminar will feature two Bursa Malaysia-listed companies, an overview of the exchange- traded fund (ETF) market and the Rakuten Trade Research’s market outlook with hot stock picks for the year.
Rakuten Trade Sdn Bhd managing director Kaoru Arai said trading can be daunting especially to those new to the equities market.
“The seminar is a way for experienced and new investors to meet the people behind the Rakuten Trade brand and for them to learn about our platform, garner investing insights from invited corporate speakers as well as top stock picks from Rakuten Trade’s research team.
“These events are designed to simplify the decision-making process by extending information through our research team and invited speakers,” he said.
He said through Rakuten Trade, Malaysian investors no longer need to walk into an actual brick-and-mortar brokerage firm to open an account.
They can open an account within two hours, top up funds via online transfer and have access to real-time market price feeds, all done completely online via its website or the iSPEED.my app.
“The fintech platform also enables clients to perform their trades at lower brokerage rates, access research reports and financial education, as well as earn rewards,” he said.
The seminar, which will be held in collaboration with The Star for the third year, is open to those aged 18 and above and will be held from 6pm to 9pm.
