Online Banking Report Publishes â€œOnline Investing Communities: Will Social Networking Revolutionize Saving and Investing?â€
SEATTLE--An in-depth new research report from Online Banking Report explores the growing trend of online â€œsocial investingâ€ and online investing communities. Social investing is the exchange of information about stock, bonds, CDs, and other investment vehicles within an online community. This new technology taps the same trends driving dramatic growth of social networks like MySpace and the â€œalways onâ€ nature of young peopleâ€™s lives in order to help people optimize their investments. The new report, â€œOnline Investing Communities: Will social networking revolutionize saving and investing?,â€ looks at how investment companies and financial institutions can become involved in the social investing space and successfully leverage this new trend to attract users, increase their sales, improve their service and enhance their branding. The report also provides primary consumer research which surveys online users age 21 and over regarding their interest in online investing communities and uses the data to develop a 10-year forecast for household usage of social investing features. Finally, the report includes a Social Investing Expert Roundtable in which executives from leading social investing startups answer questions about this trend and their products. This exclusive research is available only from Online Banking Report and is a must-read for any financial institution that wants to learn more about social investing and how they can take advantage of online investing communities.
