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.
