Invezz is a team of finance experts who care about helping people achieve financial freedom. Founded in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2012 in the bedroom of John Alexander Adam, today Invezz has offices in 3 countries and is headquartered in London, UK. The site has grown to have 40+ full-time staff and 30+ contributors, who publish content in 13 different languages for a readership of millions worldwide.

Since its inception, the site has been a collective effort to demystify investing and give regular people the tools they need to build a secure future. We publish informational guides, courses, and news that are jargon-free and accessible even to the newest investor. This is how, in under a decade, Invezz has grown to become one of the UK’s most trusted financial comparison brands, constantly striving to provide new tools and content to help our users make better financial decisions.

Invezz is owned by Investoo Group and backed by Kinetic Investments. Both of these organisations have been key to accelerating the growth of Invezz into an internationally recognised brand.

How does Invezz work?

Copy link to section

Invezz works in two ways: educating and comparing. 

We provide information to help users make smarter investment decisions, and then compare the different products and services available to them. Our content includes:

  • Breaking investment news. We help users keep up to date with the markets by reporting any major news as it comes in.
  • Live market data. If you want to find out how markets around the world are performing right now, you’ll find what you need on Invezz.
  • Educational courses. Our range of courses are freely available to any users who wish to learn more about specific investment and trading topics.
  • How-to guides. The guides on Invezz will take you through any financial process you’re confused about, step-by-step.
  • Product and service reviews. To help you make better informed decisions when investing your money, we publish in-depth reviews including easy-to-navigate comparison tables.

Through Invezz’s content, we aim to educate our users about the options available to them and make sure they’re making the best possible moves with their money.

As a separate party to the platforms we review, we’re not able to take responsibility for the information displayed on their sites, nor can we make any guarantees about the services they provide. You can find out more about our commercial relationships in our Editorial Policy.
