Presenter ProfileHow they describe themselves: Zecco is short for Zecco Holdings, Inc., which operates the Zecco.com financial portal and community. At Zecco.com users are offered the groundbreaking financial social networking community ZeccoShare, as well as powerful market data and analysis tools. Zecco Trading, Inc., member FINRA / SIPC, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Zecco Holdings, Inc. and is leading the free stock trading revolution. Zecco Trading offers brokerage customers with over $2500 in assets 10 free stock trades per month. Every month. And for those with less than $2500, stock trades are just $4.50 each. So, think of Zecco as a full package upgrade to the typical online investing routine. All in one place, supercharged and ready to go on Zecco.com.

What they think makes them better:
Related to the two basic elements of Zecco’s integrated offering, there are two compelling reasons for investors to join Zecco:

  1. ZeccoShare offers the most advanced set of social investing features, all based on the principle of users sharing real, verified data: e.g. holdings, trades, performance.
  2. With 10 free stock trades every month, Zecco Trading simply has the best offer for the majority of the online retail investors.
  3. Next to attracting existing investors that are using alternative offerings, Zecco is also opening up an entirely new market segment of new investors.
