Platforms and Tools for Investors 

PAMM MT5 Global: With the platform, you do not need any professional education before making money. You get to pay a commission for the results. Managers manage your money, and you pay them from the profit. The PAMM investment covers investment in different markets, especially the forex markets.

Asset Management: With its collaboration with FINAM, a Russian investment Holding, the broker provides a medium for managing clients’ capital by investing in the stocks of leading US and International Companies traded on major exchanges like NYSE, BAT, NASDAQ, and so on. The platform provides a range of asset management solutions for wealthy people who want to invest their funds in stocks.

The investors’ platform does not require any form of trading knowledge. Your funds are managed by professionals who have been trading the market for years.

You should still note that every form of investment is a form of risk-taking. Mo investment has a guaranteed return and at the same time, investing your money is the proven way of creating outstanding wealth. 

For the different range of opportunities, I would rate the broker high in this section too.

Research

News: The broker provides the latest news from the world of economics and finance. They are relevant to the markets and could be used to judge future market moves. 

Economic calendar: Traders and investors can also keep track of economic data using the economic calendar provided by the broker. The economic calendar also has a list of upcoming events.

Research subscription: There are also stock market forecasts, market analytics, and trading signals from the broker. You can subscribe to any of the options available to get constant updates. The options available include forex daily, forex weekly, world markets weekly, and trading ideas. Trading experts from different fields make these forecasts and ideas. 

You can also access the archive or research note and the brokerage firm blogs to see trading information that can help you at every level of trading you are. The blog also serves as a form of education for traders. 

The research instruments are also wide and useful. Getting constant market analytical updates requires paying subscription fees, which automatically means extra cost on the traders. The blog posts are also not constant enough.

Rating: 4/5

Education  

The broker does not have strong trading education, and it is not recommended for learning purposes. Some of the research provided can also pass for educational purposes. An example of this is the blog. The problem with this is it is not all-encompassing, and it is not useful for beginner traders. 

I recommend that the broker provides a proper trading school to teach and coach its investors about different aspects of trading. Such school should also be in stages such that beginner, intermediate and expert level traders can also benefit from it.

Rating: 2/5

Mobile Trading 

The MT4 and MT5 are available in mobile versions. They are created to be working tools that allow traders to trade on the global market from anywhere they are. The mobile apps provide the necessary tools to analyze price dynamics and use automated trading programs.

You can trade a range of markets from the mobile app (either on the IOS or Metatrader).

Final Thoughts

From all that has been considered so far, I can conclude that the broker is safe to trade with because a Tier-1 financial broker regulates it. The provisions it has (like the MT4 and MT5) make it possible for different traders to trade even though it is more suited for advanced traders. 

The broker does not provide educational tools that can be useful for learners, but the research tools are many and dynamic to service traders of all levels. 

Investors will make money through professionally managed accounts too.
