On March 15, senior leaders in digital wealth gathered at the O Bar in Sydney for an afternoon of insightful discussion around key market trends and shared experiences. Co-hosted by Trading Central and LSEG, the event sparks engaging dialogue in the interest of moving the industry forward together. Now onto its fourth edition in the region, guests included 10 local brokerages including Superhero, Pearler, Stake, Nabtrade, and Commsec.
Attendees had the pleasure of listening to two keynotes from Dr. Irene Guiamatsia, Head of Research at Investment Trends, and Kate Browne, Editor in Chief at Yahoo Finance Australia who each shared unique insight into Australia’s retail online investing industry post-pandemic.
The industry has seen a surge in the number of retail online investors who entered the market since 2020, with Australia and the U.S. leading the increase, where over a third of the market is comprised of new investors.
