Berlin, May 25, 2021 – With Vivid Classes, another free tool is launched today that makes it even easier for Vivid customers to dive into the world of investing. In addition to commission-free investing in stocks, ETFs and cryptocurrencies, Vivid customers will have access to easy-to-understand and helpful lessons in the form of free workshops to help them make better investingdecisions. Questions for beginners as well as already experienced investors will be answered: How do you build a suitable portfolio? What risks are associated with the respective investment opportunities? And which investment strategy suits me best? With Vivid Classes, customers learn to understand the financial world better to regain independent control over their finances. In addition, as of today, the Vivid app is also available on the Huawei AppGallery, allowing users of Huawei devices to access all the functions of Vivid Money – whether it’s investing, banking, or saving.

Learn to invest with Vivid Classes
With over three hours of content in five easy-to-follow lessons, Vivid Classes teaches customers how to become investors without the need for prior knowledge. Starting with "why should I invest at all,” Vivid Classes helps build up the knowledge around stocks, ETFs, but also cryptocurrencies. In the end, customers learn how to build their portfolio, assess risks and find the most suitable investment strategy for themselves. Each chapter concludes with a short quiz to reinforce and review the knowledge gained in the lesson. With simple and accessible language, Vivid Classes allow even clients who have never invested before to learn fundamentals to make more independent and informed investments. New chapters are added to Vivid Classes every month.

"According to the Deutsches Aktieninstitut (German Equities Institute), 12.4 million people in Germany invested in equities last year - more than at any time since 2001 - but many Germans still shy away from investing in equity products. Additionally, the knowledge, especially about novel investment opportunities like cryptocurrencies, is still shallow," says Alexander Emeshev, co-founder of Vivid Money. "That's why we want to give our customers all the tools they need to save and invest in an informed way. In doing so, financial education is a crucial aspect that we've always focused on to fulfill our mission of giving Vivid customers back control over their finances."

Invest in over 2,000 stocks and ETFs
Vivid allows customers to invest commission-free in over 2,000 stocks and ETFs from the EU and the US. In addition, Vivid customers can invest 24/7 commission-free in 11 cryptocurrencies. If they have any questions, customer service is available via chat day and night. Vivid Classes are now available for all customers in all markets (Germany, France, Spain and Italy) in English and the respective national languages free of charge directly in the app.

Vivid Money now also available for Huawei smartphones in the AppGallery.
In addition, customers can now download the Vivid app natively from Huawei's AppGallery. As a result, Huawei smartphone users can now invest in stocks and ETFs as well as cryptocurrencies commission-free, but also receive their daily banking needs via a native app on their smartphone. Vivid is one of the first investment and banking apps in Europe to offer its app in the Huawei AppGallery.
