We are very excited that ayondo is the first FinTech company to be listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange’s Catalist Board. ayondo aims to revolutionise the retail trading and investment space, by providing a one-stop offering and unique tools to help our clients become happy and successful investors.
The company is honoured to receive support from investors during the private placement exercise. We also secured investment from Pheim Asset Management (Asia) Pte.

ayondo is a global Financial Technology group with subsidiaries authorised and regulated in the UK (FCA) and Germany (BaFin) and additional offices in Singapore, Spain and Switzerland, offering innovative trading and investment solutions for retail and institutional customers. The Group is considered as one of the FinTech pioneers in Europe which has capitalised on the opportunity arising from emerging digital technologies and changing trends in the financial industry.
By combining trading and investment with elements of social media, the Group is disrupting the traditional asset management industry by offering an alternative way to trade and invest through Social Trading, a community powered concept. Social Trading represents a fast-growing innovation, with a high growth rate which allows retail investors and traders to monitor and copy trading strategies of market experts in real time, proportionate and fully automated. Key benefits, amongst others, are knowledge transfer and performance replication.
The public offering will open on 16 March 2018 and will close at 12.00 pm on 22 March 2018. The shares are expected to commence trading on the SGX-ST on a “ready” basis at 9.00 a.m. on 26 March 2018.
