with Velia Carboni, SVP Mobility Apps at Fidelity Investments

 

Fidelity Investments saw smartphone use really take-off with Fidelity clients in the 2007-2008 timeframe. In this segment, Velia Carboni explains how smartphones, tablets such as the iPad and mobile apps have impacted individual investing. Investors now access their financial accounts and trade from just about anywhere. While this is good for Fidelity, does it cause hasty, spur-of-the-moment decision-making without adequate research?

Velia walks us through the kinds of investment activities people typically use these smart devices for, and tells us where the future is headed with smart wearable devices such as the iWatch and Google Glass, and how smaller information bytes might further impact investors connected to their portfolios through smart devices.
