Nature of Business
Zercatto is an online platform that enables investors to maximise returns on their own portfolios by giving them access to the trading strategies of some of the most successful market experts. Designed to ensure investors do not incur unnecessary fees, Zercatto enables investors to follow expert strategies for a fixed weekly fee, but investors are only required to pay if the strategy they are following is profitable; there are no commission fees, no management fees, and no charges per trade.
Zercatto was founded on the following principles:
- Management fees and charging a commission on the trades you make, regardless of how low they are, are unnecessary.
- As an investor, you should only pay when you make a profit.
- A single banker or single team of bankers does not know what is best for your investment portfolio – especially due to the fact that people are now investing all over the world and across different sectors and instruments.
- You should not rely blindly on algorithmic trading; you should have complete control over your own portfolio.
- Indices should not be tracked; they should be beaten!
