What is a portfolio app?

A portfolio app is a web or mobile application that enables users to store, manage, and display digital assets. Portfolio apps typically include interfaces for storing user-generated content (such as photos and videos), managing digital assets, sharing content with others, analyzing historical trends in asset value, importing data from other sources, and exporting data to other systems.

Portfolio management apps often share features with banking apps and stock trading apps. They can also share features with other financial apps like personal finance apps, investment apps, and retirement planning apps. Mint is a commonly used portfolio management app.

Here are some recent portfolio app examples built with Crowdbotics:

How to successfully grow your portfolio application

A portfolio management app relies on the wisdom of the crowd to provide information about the performance of different assets, such as stocks. Portfolio management apps can use gamification strategies to engage users by rewarding them with points for performing certain activities, and they can offer advanced features in order to encourage users to become more engaged.

Risks and challenges of building a portfolio application

A portfolio management app faces a variety of risks related to the storage and handling of personal financial data. It is recommended that you leverage third-party API solutions to avoid the need for storage and processing of sensitive financial information. You will also want to ensure that you are compliant with all applicable regulations, such as SEC and FINRA requirements, which may apply to your app.
