This is an annual award by the International Finance Magazine in the UK, honoring organizations and businesses with outstanding achievements and development efforts in the fields of finance, banking, aviation, services, etc., in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
To select the “Most Innovative Mobile Trading App 2023”, the Organizing Committee includes experienced experts in the global finance, banking, and technology fields who thoroughly evaluate a range of criteria such as the technology factor, product improvement level, security standards, user-friendly interface design, ease of use, customer satisfaction ratings, and application user growth.
This award is the result of a technology-focused strategy from the early days of VPBankS, prioritizing the development of intelligent trading platforms to provide a seamless digital experience for customers. Accordingly, VPBankS has applied a series of advanced technology solutions, digitized its products and services, and implemented automated testing to create innovative and optimized products in the market.
NEO Invest uses cutting-edge cross-platform technology to enable fast and highly reliable stock trading, minimizing system errors. Particularly, the app helps customers easily manage all their assets from various investment channels on a unified platform. This is an attractive feature that has not been widely implemented by many securities companies.
NEO Invest utilizes pioneering Flutter technology along with modern architecture and cloud computing to provide customers with a consistent experience across multiple platforms, including Android and iOS, making the app run smoothly and perform at its best. This technology also allows for the creation of effects and animations, providing beautiful and flexible interfaces. With modern technology and superior application speed, the display of charts and order placement for customers is faster, saving time and enabling investors to seize investment opportunities at reasonable prices. In 2023, NEO Invest was upgraded and updated with a full range of products such as the Model Investment Portfolio (ePortfolio) and flexible eMargin collateral packages. In addition, the NEO Invest app is built with multiple layers of security to protect user data, prevent intrusion, and regularly undergoes periodic checks to detect vulnerabilities early, ensuring that investors can trade with peace of mind.
