IG Group expands language list on IG Academy mobile app
After the addition of Swedish, the app is now available in nine languages.
Electronic trading major IG Group Holdings plc (LON:IGG) continues to enhance its mobile solutions. The latest version of the IG Academy app (2.6), released earlier this week, comes with an expanded list of languages.
The broker has now added Swedish to the lineup, taking the number of languages in which the app is available to nine. Earlier this summer, IG added Dutch, Italian, Norwegian and Spanish to the language list, in an apparent move to take the solutions to a wider clientele. Let’s also note that such moves are in tune with the growing use of mobile solutions by younger clients.
IG has been keeping an eye on other features too. In an update to IG Academy released in May this year, the broker enabled traders to join live webinars with leading trading experts. In addition, the app became fully compatible with iPhone X to give traders the best experience. Users of the solution also got to manage their marketing preferences.
IG Academy, as its name suggests, aims to teach its users how to trade straight from their phones.
Downloading the application is free of charge. Users of the solution may learn about trading financial assets such as shares, indices, Forex and commodities, and find out how to capitalise on both rising and falling markets. They can also discover how to trade using leverage, execute orders and develop a trading plan. In addition, the application offers traders a way to understand risk management and how to protect their profits or limit potential losses. From a psychological point of view, the solution enables traders to gain the confidence to decide what, when and how to trade.
Regarding the status of its clients, IG has recently noted that clients who were categorised as professional on June 30, 2018, generated over 40% of the Company’s UK and EU revenue in the preceding three months, and the Group continues to expect this proportion to rise to 50%.
The regular updates to the IG Academy app underline IG’s commitment to newbie traders too.
