Singapore 50 dollar bill

The wealth advisory arm of iFAST Financial, iFAST Global Markets, has launched a mobile app in an effort to “bridge the gap” between the adviser-assisted and do-it-yourself segments of the wealth advisory market, the company said in a filing to SGX Monday.

“The new iGM mobile app will enable clients to invest and trade seamlessly across a wide range of products, and still being able to tap on the advice of a wealth adviser,” Lim Chung Chun, chairman and CEO of iFAST, said in the statement.

The app is aimed at helping wealth advisers ensure clients receive appropriate advice and assistance even if they are investing on a DIY basis, the statement said.

iGM also comes with access to Bond Express, which provides real-time bond trading for a curated selection of bonds, with firm and executable bid/ask prices, iFAST said, adding this is the first time Bond Express has been offered on a mobile app.

The app is available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, the filing said.

IFAST Corp. is a wealth-management fintech platform, with assets under administration of S$8.75 billion as of end-March, the filing said.
