EuropeanInvestor.com Launches in U.S.

[May 22] EuropeanInvestor.com, one of Europe's top sources of online investment information for technology stocks, has opened for business in the United States.

In the U.S., EuropeanInvestor.com plans to make its range of financial content investment tools and services available to banks, brokerages, Internet access providers, financial sites, and telecom operators. The aim, says the company, is to help individual U.S. investors take advantage of investment possibilities in Europe.

"American investors are finally realizing that it is time to expand their portfolios beyond the Dow and NASDAQ," said Piet Van de Velde, chief executive officer of EuropeanInvestor.com.

The key feature of the EuropeanInvestor.com site is its free access to real time share prices on ten major markets, including London, Paris, Frankfurt, Euro.NM, Amsterdam, Milan, Switzerland, New York, Nasdaq and Amex.

Another feature of the site is a multi-currency portfolio tracker, enabling investors to track up to 500 personally selected stocks in up to 10 different portfolios across all the various markets.

Van de Velde said he thought the timing of his company's entry into the U.S. market was excellent. Speaking about the site's capabilities he said it presented very sophisticated information in a concise, understandable format with an easily comprehensible interface.

EuropeanInvestor.com's B2B suite enables any Web site to offer what the company calls "cutting edge financial information." It will let American investors create and monitor an international stock portfolio in any currency.

EuropeanInvestor.com draws on information from third party sources, including Reuters Euro+, AFX News, PR Line, Company News, PR Newswire and Business Wire.
