Lightyear launches new web app with stock screener feature
By Gloria Methri
Investment platform Lightyear has unveiled its web application with new stock screeners, a “highly requested” feature by investors on the platform. The screeners – a directory of instruments with metrics and data – are completely available to the public.
Lightyear customers can now access a fully functional web app from signing up to investing and managing their portfolios. The app holds all the same key features as mobile, including ways to deposit cash and the newly launched order types (limit and stop orders).
Stock screeners launch alongside the full web platform today; a full directory of stocks and funds with metrics and data to enable all investors – whether Lightyear customers or not – to make informed investment decisions.
Screeners are divided into stocks and funds, allowing users to filter the entire Lightyear instrument universe based on specific criteria – from country and sector to P/E ratio, share price, daily performance and more. Users can also find out more about selected stocks or funds, see analyst ratings and use the available instrument analysing tools.
The directory of instruments is also completely available to the public, giving non-Lightyear users access to explore Lightyear’s instrument universe in full, using the same tools that are available to customers of the platform.
Although this is the newest version of Lightyear’s web application, Jani Kiilunen, Product Lead at Lightyear, emphasises it is just the foundation of future iterations of the web platform.
“Lightyear on Web has quickly become one of the most advanced and intuitive web platforms for investing – while other neo-brokers have kept their customers waiting for years or keep very simple versions of their web apps behind paywalls. Many of our customers are advanced investors who prefer investing on the big screen, which is why this has been a high-priority project for us. We want to create tools that allow users to make better investment decisions – whether you are a Lightyear customer or not. We’re only just scratching the surface of what we’re planning for Lightyear’s web application.”
