Swissquote mulls new event format for customers

Maria Nikolova

Swissquote’s customers are about to benefit from a new event format, allowing them to register to visit the bank’s headquarters.

Customers of Swissquote Group Holding SA (SWX:SQN) may soon be able to benefit from a new event format. In a short post on Pulse, Swissquote’s André Burri has said that the team is considering to replace the Mobile Day events with something like “Meet Swissquote”, where customers could register to visit Swissquote’s headquarters.

The new events are still not well defined yet, but we may see the first such event in 2018.

The next Swissquote Mobile Day will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2017 in Bern. As the name of the event suggests, it allows traders to take part in the development of Swissquote’s mobile applications. The company welcomes regular users of its mobile applications and those that simply want to find out more about them. Swissquote’s mobile application developers are looking forward to hearing traders’ comments and suggestions.

The latest additions to Swissquote’s mobile apps include giving users access to a dedicated Bitcoin section – the latter is available only available for authenticated customers. Users can follow their transactions and Bitcoin positions in their accounts. The trading is not ready yet, but the team has promised it will follow in one of the next releases.

Let’s note that Swissquote has been taking care of the social aspect of trading. In June this year, Swissquote’s Pulse, the social network for traders, officially grew out of its “beta” phase, about one year after its launch.

Pulse became available on iOS devices as version 6.2.0 of the Swissquote mobile app was released, and several months after that the network was introduced on Android devices.

While we are on the topic of the social aspect of trading and mobile technologies, let’s mention that users of the Swissquote Mobile Banking and Trading Solution can receive notifications when they pass near a Swissquote Lounge. The lounges offer traders the opportunity to get to know the company and the trading community better. In the lounges, traders can obtain direct stock market information in a friendly atmosphere, read the financial press, find out more about the company’s services or simply relax and enjoy a cup of coffee.
