If you've already got some trading experience and want to get ahead by creating a track record, here's more information on how to become a wikifolio-trader:
What is a wikifolio?
wikifolios are virtual portfolios, where private traders, professional asset managers and renowned financial media implement their trading ideas. Each wikifolio can serve as a notional reference portfolio to which a corresponding wikifolio index refers. The Lang & Schwarz Aktiengesellschaft issues open-ended index certificates on those that are traded on the Stuttgart stock exchange.
From the outset, all transactions in the wikifolio are publicly available and their performance can be followed closely and seamlessly. If a wikifolio finds enough supporters, an exchange-traded wikifolio certificate can be created based on it. Soon, wikifolios in English can also be represented in an open-ended index certificate in which one can invest via a bank or an online broker.
A variety of strategies for each securities deposit
Round about 6,000 stocks, ETPs and funds form the basis of wikifolios created in English*. wikifolio traders thus implement the most diverse trading ideas in their wikifolios. From widely diversified or long-term trading ideas all the way to short-term trading approaches – there may be something for everyone!
*wikifolios created in German are based on an investment universe of up to 250,000 stocks, ETPs, funds and structured products from Lang & Schwarz, HSBC Trinkaus, Société Générale and UBS.
Easy selecting and investing
Via the wikifolio search with its numerous filters and distinctions, you can find the wikifolios that may meet your needs. The top wikifolio ranking facilitates the selection.
Investing in selected wikifolio certificates is simple: Already starting from about 100 euros, you can include wikifolio certificates into your current securities deposit at your bank or your online broker offering a trading connection to the Stuttgart stock exchange.
We are working on expanding wikifolio.com so that wikifolio certificates will be available at a larger variety of online brokers.
wikifolio certificates are collateralized
As of now, all existing wikifolio certificates and each newly issued wikifolio certificate will benefit from a collateralization solution. The advantage: Losses from a general issuer risk associated with certificate investments are largely hedged.
Select your favorites and benefit from these trading ideas via exchanged-traded financial products.
Transparent insight for your overview
You can see all wikifolios at any time and observe exactly how your favorite wikifolios perform!
The transparency on wikifolio.com naturally increases the pressure on me as a trader since everyone can directly compare the wikifolios and their performance.
Fair fee model for performance
The use of wikifolio.com is free of charge. Only when you invest in a wikifolio certificate you will incur a certificate fee and possibly a performance fee (upon reaching a new high watermark, i.e. a new annual high).
On wikifolio.com, you see all price information with certificate and performance fees already deducted. The return of the corresponding wikifolio certificate corresponds to that of the respective wikifolio – without hidden costs.
Transactions and restructurings in the wikifolio are not burdened with additional costs. This way, wikifolio traders can use any market movement without reducing their return through transaction costs.
Both traders and investors on wikifolio.com pursue the same goal: I only earn money when my wikifolio generates a return that investors actually profit from.
Investors bring wikifolio certificates to the fore!
Based on customer orders, wikifolio certificates were among the most actively traded products in the index and participation certificates segment of EUWAX in 2015, next to products of Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank.
When it comes to money, security and trust must be a priority. The same applies to wikifolio.com. All transactions go through our partner Lang & Schwarz and the trading center of the Stuttgart Stock Exchange (EUWAX). These are synonymous with the proper handling of transactions.
