What are the pros and cons of Finny?
Here are some pros and cons you should be aware of if you’re thinking about using Finny:
- Free trial. Finny comes with a seven-day free trial so you can experience the Premium version to decide if it’s right for you. But fair warning — you’ll pay a $99 annual subscription fee if you fail to cancel before your trial expires.
- Basic free version. The only thing you can do with the free version is read basic analyses of securities. Almost everything else requires you to “Unlock Finny Premium.”
- No stand-out features. Most investing platforms have stock charts and analyses where you can get in-depth comparisons of securities. Other sites have free money guides and blog posts where you can learn how to make informed financial decisions.
We had the opportunity to ask Milan Kovacevic, co-founder of Finny, some questions about the platform. Here’s what we asked:
- Are there any new features planned that you can tell us about?
We’ll be launching a free, game-based financial education app next month.
- What makes Finny different from other robo-advice platforms or human advisors?
Finny is not an advice platform and should not be compared to robo-advisors or human advisors. Finny is an investment research app.
- Who do you see as the target audience for Finny?
The new generation of investors who are looking to learn about investing, and do their own research quickly and efficiently.
- How delayed is your stock information?
