How Technology Has Changed Investing

There is no denying that technology has changed the way we go about our daily lives. From how we do our shopping to banking, technology has had an impact on it all.

Online trading - Of course, it would not be right to talk about tech and investing without mentioning online trading. Online trading turned the industry on its head because it changed the role of a broker. Before online trading platforms became so proliferated, investors would actually call up their broker in order to place a trade. These days are long gone.

Terminals - Last but not least, another way that has changed due to tech is through terminals. These were first introduced around 60 years or so ago, so they are not a new invention. However, today's terminals are so advanced, offering cloud-based software that can be uploaded onto any type of device. This means investors have a secure network so they can access everything they need, including having the ability to chat with clients and competitors, execute trades, read the market news, and assess real-time pricing.

As you can see, there are many different ways that technology has changed the face of investing. From the computerised trading terminals that are used today to the robo-advisors investors use to make their decisions; there is no denying that technology has had a dramatic impact on the investment sector.
