Analyse the market

Before creating a product, you need to decide in which niche the application will develop. Of course, you can create a universal solution suitable for any type of investment. If you have about 1-1.5 million dollars, any professional company will make you such a product.

Create a concept

After defining a niche and the target audience, it is necessary to develop a concept. It will allow you to see a product that does not yet exist and understand what will happen in the end. Analyze the existing solutions. It will help you to create a user profile. Imagine that you are a customer of your own product. Describe yourself, define your needs, and write a detailed scenario of interaction with a potential application. How it will help meet your needs, describe all the features that you can use. Then arrange them in order of importance.

Prototype your app

Cost of developing an investment app

But anyway, the cost of developing an investment app with minimum viable features will range from $50,000 to $100,000. And the exact figure will depend on some factors such as the type of app, investor peculiarities or ideas, concept, type of development team, their experience and location, etc. Of all these factors, the major determinant of an app’s cost is the development team.

How Can You Earn As An Investment App Owner?

You should also consider the ways of monetizing your investment app android. In fact, the main goal of creating an application for investment is its monetization. This is a tool for generating income, so you need to think in advance about how you will monetize your product. As a rule, a hybrid monetization model is more often used, which includes several options at a time. Among them:

  • receiving interest for transactions;
  • advertising in the application;
  • personal consultations;
  • investor’s asset management fee;
  • the possibility of a premium subscription with advanced features;
  • mandatory subscription to work in the application;
  • provision of additional services;
  • conducting educational courses;
  • subscription to an individual selection of news according to the needs of the client, etc.

You may develop your own technology to raise funds. However, small percentage fees for transactions are the most common. You may charge a fee for withdrawing funds from a wallet to a bank account or similar. So financial investment apps remain free to use, but at the same time, earnings come from transactions.


Developing your own investment accounting application is quite expensive. But the product, with an incredible design, competent launch, and great features quickly pays off and brings good profits. Assess the mobile app development risks, whether it is profitable for you to invest in this area, and make a step to build and monetize an app that should be clear to users. Your customers need to understand exactly how the application works and evaluate whether it is profitable to cooperate with such a product or not. You have to think it over at the stage of analysing the target audience and your competitor’s powers.
