What can you use the app for?

Cake Financial can make it much easier to track and manage your investment portfolios. It is a social investment platform which can be used to track all of your portfolios from the convenience of one place. This is a very helpful service and also makes it possible to analyze your past performance; up to 10 years of data can be analyzed. It’s also possible to take a look at the real time portfolio and share the performance with their family, friends and top investors. All of the data is kept secure and you do not expose anything you don’t want to. One very useful feature is investment blogs, these are where any user can write about which securities they have brought or sold recently. This is a great place to go to get advice and also ask for it if you don’t know what you’re doing. Most western people are very secretive when it comes to their personal finances and don’t like the idea of disclosing any of their personal financial decisions. However cake financial makes sure that only safe information is disclosed. You can even choose to make your account anonymous so that you don’t have to tell anyone your name. They use very high end security, the same system that’s use by Citicorp and PayPal. When you have a network of trusted people they can automatically receive alerts when ever anyone in the group buys and sells anything. You can also use the match me up function on the site to find similar investors that you might want to talk to.
