About Invstr

At invstr we’re making finance social by democratising access to financial information and empowering everyone to take charge of their financial lives by providing the education, resources and opportunity to become real investors.  

We are doing this through a micro-investing app that allows everyone to learn about the financial markets in a fun and safe way.

We have received various Fintech awards including “Most Innovative Finance App” by Corporate LiveWire, and dubbed the “Facebook of Finance” by the Daily Telegraph.  

We continue to receive excellent validation in the press across notable broadsheets, TV and trade press.
