AtlasTrend, a financial investment platform, has launched a voiced activated assistant called Astro, which uses verbal commands to initiate transactions and provide users with real-time responses and information about the performance of their investments.
Following the initial launch, AtlasTrend plans to release further features through the year, based on demand from users.
According to the investment firm, users will be able to review investment return information and reports, ask questions about Atlas Trend, and access the month’s most important investment news and information.
AtlasTrend co-founder Kent Kwan said Astro is a friendly, at-home source of on demand investment info, designed to help users quickly check in on their investments, as well as improve financial literacy through on-demand access to components of AtlasTrend’s database of financial know-how.
“One of the biggest problems with the financial services industry is the barrier to entry for everyday Australians. Astro helps cut through the jargon to make overseas investing more accessible,” said Mr Kwan.
