MONTVALE, N.J., Sept. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MICT, Inc. (Nasdaq: MICT), (the “Company”) wholly-owned subsidiary Magpie Securities today announces the launch of Magpie Invest, its mobile stock trading app. The Magpie Invest trading app will be available to investors in Hong Kong, and is licensed under Hong Kong SFC, the most highly regarded financial market in China.
The Magpie Invest Trading App is a proprietary platform and technology built by MICT that offers customers access to more financial markets, a wider range of stocks, more market data, enhanced analytics, market information, and an engaging user experience.
“From the moment we merged with Global Fintech Holdings we have been promising our stockholders that we will deliver state-of-the-art fintech solutions to the Asian market, today we have momentously achieved this promise. We have injected nearly half a billion Hong Kong dollars into launching Magpie Securities, a leading SFC-regulated securities business, which is introducing its first product, the mobile trading app, Magpie Invest. We have chosen the Hong Kong market to launch as it is the number-one financial center in Asia, with very sophisticated retail investors,” stated MICT Chief Executive Officer Darren Mercer. “Magpie Invest enables investors in Hong Kong with free real time data and market information and allows its users to trade on exchanges from around the globe. The Magpie Invest launch in Hong Kong is only the beginning of the realization of the Company’s business plan, as we now aim to gain regulatory approval in numerous jurisdictions for investors throughout the world to be able to utilize the trading app.”
