Gen Z investors opt for global stocks

Where do bright young Gen Z financial investors put their money?

Online brokerage firm, Tiger Brokers, which has been operating in New Zealand since 2015, has analysed its 100,000+ Gen Z investors around the world and found their portfolios are made up of approximately:

• 45% long-term stocks such as Apple, Boeing, and Carnival

• 10% high volatility stocks, such as Afterpay, Kodak, and Vaccinex

“Gen Z investors tend to create a globally diverse investment portfolio,†says Tiger Brokers New Zealand CEO Vincent Cheung, who heads a team of 45 people in Auckland.

Tiger Broker’s mobile and online trading platform, Tiger Trade, enables investors to trade in equities on multiple exchanges around the world all in one integrated account.

Mr Cheung says Tiger Brokers research into its Gen Z investors – which represent 15% of the company’s 740,000+ customers worldwide – show they are balanced in their investment choices.

Mr Cheung said Gen Z investors love to use multiple technical tools on the Tiger Brokers’ app, Tiger Trade, to help with decision-making. The Tiger Trade app offers real time stock quotes, multilingual customer service and 24/7 finance news updates.

Victor Zhu, who is studying finance at the University of Auckland, is one of hundreds of New Zealand Gen Z users of the Tiger Trade app.

Mr Zhu was attracted to engage and invest in the stock market by a competition hosted by Tiger Brokers. “In that competition I was able to apply the knowledge I learned from my course into the real market. It also allowed me to learn trading strategies from other competitors and discuss the daily political issues and economic impact on society. It gave me the confidence to start trading and learn about wealth management through the stock market.â€

Mr Cheung said the average fund deposited in a Gen Z Tiger Brokers trading account was US$3,435.
