FinTech the world of partnerships! Openfolio has teamed up with Robinhood to enable in-app trades. This means that an Openfolio user who is looking at trading activity can make a trade without having to switch into Robinhood’s app.
Robinhood grabbed our attention for years while it was still on the drawing board. The company succeeded in rocking the financial boat when it launched in Dec 2014 as the first mobile-first, fee-free brokerage, allowing users to trade stocks without commissions or account fees right from your smartphone. Today, the company is announcing partnerships that will let users of financial services StockTwits ( one of Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies in Finance in 2012), Openfolio, and Quantopian trade directly using Robinhood’s platform. (Educational finance company Rubicoin will also integrate Robinhood services when it launches in December.)
