The mobile app is highly invested in social investing in order to promote community interaction, where users support and learn from one another, share investing ideas and insights about stocks.

For users who seek structured learning experiences, there are also a lot of educational courses published on moomoo as well, the firm stated in its official announcement.

On this special occasion, we’re happy to announce our launch in Australia. We hope to bring moomoo’s advanced features, which have already been validated in the US and Singapore, to every investor in Australia. Our vision is to help all investors with different experience levels improve trading skills, optimize investment strategies and take control of their wealth creation.”
