About Us

TrustPedia is a leading financial review portal founded by a team of financial experts. We are a research agency and independent financial services comparison firm targeting the retail client niche.

History

TrustPedia was founded back in 2015 as the founders were concerned about the growing number of trading software and algorithmic trading bots available on the market. They recognized that some of the software was promoted inappropriately, which might mislead retail clients having no prior knowledge about the financial services industry. Therefore, by creating TrustPedia, our team wanted to help individuals make informed decisions when using online financial services.

At the time, there were already some financial review portals, but none of them were truly independent and unbiased. Those websites either had a vested interest in promoting certain products or services or were not specialized in providing in-depth reviews of online financial services.

TrustPedia aimed to fill this gap in the market and become a go-to resource for individuals looking for unbiased and accurate information regarding financial services.

Initially, the team was small, and the company was primarily focused on providing reviews and trading software comparisons. The company continued to grow its services and offerings during these years. As the website received more public attention, the team expanded by bringing additional professionals to broaden the coverage and include various public company stocks, ETFs, and crypto reviews, to name a few.

What problem do we try to solve

With the growth of algorithmic trading platforms, it can be intimidating nowadays to decide which one to choose and whether to use any of those. These are relevant questions since although some of this software is solid, in other cases you have to avoid it at all costs.

Thus, the idea behind starting the company was to help people make informed decisions when using any online financial service. Because we know that sound trading software can make superior, reliable, and accurate buying/selling decisions with you or on your behalf.

We do not provide investment advice

That is right, we are not a financial advisor and we are currently not offering any investment advice. In case you need any specific advice related to your finances or wealth, you will need to consult with the appropriate professionals who run such practices.

We simply use our expertise to review the available financial products to bring to you key highlights which are necessary for informed decision-making. As such, we are just doing the research and comparing the products by saving you time, at the same time, sharing with you the knowledge required to perform such analysis.

Our team

Our team comprises certified financial planners, public accountants, financial accountants, consultants, chartered financial analysts, financial risk managers, and investment counselors. We also bring together data specialists, content specialists, and designers who all work together with the “customer first” mindset.
