Investment Platform Lightyear Launches In-app Access to Earnings Calls
- 18.01.2023 09:55 am
Today, finance software startup Quartr and investment platform Lightyear announce a partnership to bring Quartr’s convenient access to earnings calls audios, reports and slide decks to the Lightyear platform.
Quartr has collected company information from roughly 7,000 listed companies and have, since this autumn, started redistributing this data to other platforms through an API. The next company to integrate with Quartr is the UK-based investment platform Lightyear. The partnership will bring all of Quarter’s earnings call features to Lightyear’s investors in 20 countries.
Quartr and Lightyear share the mission of bringing easily accessible stock market information to investors everywhere. Quartr brings together information such as earnings calls, slide decks and reports that have historically been difficult to access and scattered on individual companies’ sites.
The information will be presented to investors from right within the Lightyear app, allowing users to access the data audibly and visually. This additional data offering, together with Lightyear’s transparent fees and extensive product suite give customers a strong foundation to make informed investment decisions.
Lightyear was founded by ex-Wise duo Martin Sokk and Mihkel Aamer to give everyone in Europe seamless, low-cost access to global markets. Traditionally, if European investors want access to international markets they get hit with transaction and custody fees, but most notably, hidden foreign exchange fees. Lightyear aims to bridge these gaps and lower the fees for international markets for customers.
Quartr CEO and Co-founder Sami Osman comments: “Lightyear’s implementation of our API solution is a natural step on our mission of bringing the financial community closer together, creating yet another important distribution channel. We are convinced that our API will create a lot of value for both investors and online brokers worldwide, and not least for public companies as this enables them to get their equity stories told to a much wider audience”.”
Lightyear CTO and Co-founder Mihkel Aamer comments: “Easy access to stock market data is crucial for new and experienced investors alike — to build out their investment strategies and successfully carry them out over the years. Historically earnings calls and the discussions within them have not been easily accessible for retail investors; yet keeping up with companies’ quarterly results is a key part of staying up to date with your portfolio performance. We’re excited to partner with Quartr and bring earnings calls, reports and slide decks into the Lightyear app, for our customers all across Europe.”
