There is a range of assets available so you can build your fund the way you want. Stocks, Indices, Commodities, Cryptocurrencies and Forex (Foreign Exchange, sometimes referred to as FX).

A stock is a security which represents fractional ownership of a corporation. These are traded across the worlds' many stock markets.
A digital asset designed to work as a method of payment or exchange. Generally, these digital currencies are stored on a digital ledger or database and copies of this database are held by many thousands of different sources, making the ledger unalterable and immutable.

It is likely that you have added your maximum number of assets already. You can currently add a maximum of 20 different assets at any one time.
You can request the asset you are looking for by going to the fund manager section, clicking on add asset and then following the link at the bottom of the screen - 'can't find your asset?' We don't guarantee to add every stock or asset that's requested but we do plan to build the number of assets up over time to give you plenty to choose from.
