Matty is a unique trading platform that combines algorithmic trading with custom interest-focused investment portfolios to help achieve financial growth and smart money management.
Matty, headquartered in the US, was founded in 2021 by CEO Jon Bryson. During the height of the meme stock craze in 2020, Jon was concerned by a majority of new investors participating in frenzied trading with little to no knowledge of the market, which resulted in many people losing substantial amounts of money. At the time, trading apps weren't doing enough to educate these investors.
This prompted Jon to create a trading platform that is not only simple to use but also educates individuals on how to manage their money and investments. Jon poured his heart and soul into the creation of this idea and strategically partnered with senior developer Barclay Layman to bring his vision to life. With Jon’s passion and Barclay’s extensive experience in the development space, Matty was established. The name “Matty” is short for “mattress,” referencing cash under the mattress as a safe and dependable place to save money.
Matty strives to help individuals to trade and save with its first-of-its-kind trading platform that promotes financial growth and smart money management for all.
After creating an account, investors are prompted to set a specific saving goal, whether it be to buy a home, save for college tuition, vacation, and more. Matty then analyzes their social media platforms in order to generate and suggest a list of companies that match their unique interests to create custom lifestyle (Patent Pending) investment portfolios. Once designed, Matty uses self-driven and precise algorithmic trading technology to automatically trade shares of these custom-made portfolios within specific sectors and industries.
Built on the power of community, Matty also empowers investors to share their specific saving goals with everyone from their social circle or even contribute towards someone else’s saving goal with a touch of a button.
