What is Gainy? 

Gainy is a thematic investing platform that allows investing in stocks, ETFs, and TTFs. 

Gainy's Thematic Trading Fractionals (TTFs) are a solution for investors who want flexibility and control but may not have the time or expertise for extensive stock research and portfolio optimization.

The Gainy platform is an optimal way to diversify your risk, invest in themes you believe in, and increase your gains.

What is TTF?

Thematic Trading Fractionals are optimized model portfolios typically made of 10-15 stocks devoted to one topic, cause, or investment strategy, e.g. FinTech, Cybersecurity, or Inflation-Proof Portfolio. TTFs are automatically rebalanced when a new company becomes available or an existing stock is underperforming. It is the most convenient way to invest in what you like and believe in.

TTFs offer a balance between diversification and investment focus that is not found in ETFs.

Gainy will regularly optimize and rebalance TTFs for clients, ensuring their portfolios are always up-to-date with the latest relevant companies and performance.

Using Gainy's recommendation tools and financial data, users can choose from over 70 model portfolios based on industries (e.g., Electric Vehicles), investment styles (e.g., Low-volatility stocks), and market conditions (e.g., Inflation-Proof portfolio).

Is investing in TTFs different from stocks and ETFs?

Unlike in stocks, when you invest in TTFs you don’t have to spend hours researching individual companies. We’ve researched the best stocks in each TTF based on their fundamentals, volatility, and returns. You can have laser focus investments in specific ideas but diversify your risks by investing in TTFs.

TTFs don’t have hundreds of unknown companies like ETFs that disperse all of your growth but typically 10-15 stocks hand-picked by professionals and optimized with algorithms with a goal of delivering diversification and balancing risk/return of the portfolio.

Is Gainy a RIA (Registered investment adviser)?

Gainy is a registered investment advisor with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We can legally provide advisory services to investors in the United States. Please see full legal information about the company in the legal hub.

Is your investment platform free?

We don't charge any trading commissions and you can place as many orders as you like. Our advisory service monthly fee is 0.08% on assets under management or $8 for accounts with less than $10,000.

How does the money deposit process work? Is it instant? 

It takes up to 3 business days to route your funds to the platform. However, as soon as your account is approved (usually almost instantly) you can place order requests right away on the amount of investments that you sent to Gainy. In this case these orders will be executed as soon as the funds arrive. For example, if you open an account on Monday and place an order, and your money arrived on Tuesday morning, your order will be also executed on Tuesday often within 15 minutes, but no later than at 10:30 am EST. If you are opening your account on Friday, then your funds and your purchase (in most cases) will happen on Monday next week.

How does trading work? Is it instant?

All the purchase orders are executed no later than the next business day at 10:30 am EST. It’s designed that way to optimize your trading activities with TTFs and for automatic rebalancing of each purchase of a TTF. In this case, if any new company becomes available for a TTF or any market related optimization happens to a TTF, it will be rebalanced automatically without any work on your end. However, you can see the whole history of all the past and upcoming transactions in the app. You can place more transactions or cancel upcoming orders before they are executed.

Is it available in any country?

Research and analysis functionality is available in all countries except for those not supported by the App Store. Investing capabilities are only available for the US residents due to SEC regulations.
