XtraInvestor is designed for and by investors. Most investor sites are offered by media companies and are designed as tools to “shower” the page with advertisements. They have no reason to get rid of visitors who are not credible. Other sites are operated by brokerage firms. Their motive for setting up the site is to have you as a customer and to collect fees from your trading activities. They may publish biased research reports. XtraInvestor is completely unbiased and our motivation is to make the site into a strong investment tool for you.
We will not ask for more information about you than absolutely necessary to make the site work properly. You will at all times decide how your messages should be protected. You alone decide which members may follow you and send you direct messages. Your status updates will not appear in search engines or other internet sites. Rest assured, as users ourselves, we will protect all members’ privacy.
