Borrow, earn, spend and invest worldwide from a single unified account…

Whenever you think of investing, your mind tends to go to only one asset class – the stock market.

Investors don’t think about the many other options that are available to them. And if they do, it gets coupled with the need to open a different account that specialises in that asset class.

For instance, you don’t want to have one broker that can only handle your stock market trading needs, such as Charles Schwab.

And conversely, you don’t want to just have an account, such as Binance or CoinBase, to handle your cryptocurrency requirements. Or, be with Vanguard so you can drip-feed capital into your preferred exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

But what if there was a financial management solution that integrated the ability to buy and sell stocks, options, ETFs, contract for differences (CFDs), bonds, currencies, futures and many others all from a single unified platform?

Interactive Brokers (IBKR) is a direct market access platform that is designed to remove any unnecessary intermediaries and third parties between the clients and the markets.

The platform offers full-service execution, clearing and custody.

With access to 33 countries and 24 currencies, IBKR clients can invest globally in stocks, options, futures, currencies, bonds and funds from one place – the ‘Universal’ Account – allowing an investor to easily manage multiple accounts from a single interface. 

The stress and anxiety of not needing to think if the right password has been used, or flicking between apps and website to track how certain products are rising or falling, can help an investor to focus on what really matters.

IBKR also offers the lowest commissions and financial rates, helping investors to minimise costs in order to maximise your returns, and access market data 24 hours a day, six days a week.

Being able to obtain a clear picture of the total portfolio at the click of a button is vital in helping investors manage their risk and exposure.

Investors are able to sign up with Interactive Brokers for a free trial with no commitment. For more information, head to their website.

Amazon employees walk out to protest office policies



Staff at warehousing giant Amazon have walked off the job to protest the company’s return-to-office program

Over 1,900 Amazon employees pledged to protest globally over proposed changes to the company’s climate policy, layoffs and a return-to-office mandate.

The activist group behind the rally is known as Amazon Employees for Climate Justice (AECJ), who are seeking a greater voice for employees.

“Our goal is to change Amazon’s cost/benefit analysis on making harmful, unilateral decisions that are having an outsized impact on people of color, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people,” organisers said.

Over 100 people gathered at the heart of Amazon’s Seattle headquarters on Wednesday. The company said it had not witnessed any other demonstrations.

AECJ said the walkout comes after Amazon made moves “in the wrong direction”.

The company recently has recently overturned a desire to make all Amazon shipments net zero for carbon emissions by 2030.

The company maintains a pledge on climate change.

Amazon spokesperson Brad Glasser told Reuters the company is pursuing a strategy to cut carbon emissions.

“For companies like ours who consume a lot of power, and have very substantial transportation, packaging, and physical building assets, it’ll take time to accomplish.”

AECJ protesters also sought support for the 27,000 staff, who had lost their jobs in recent months —around 9 per cent of Amazon’s global workforce.

The company has also mandated a return-to-office program.

The Great Resignation vs. The Great Burnout



As employees recover from the height of the pandemic, the Great Resignation has come to light

The pandemic saw the term ‘the great resignation’ coined as thousands of people resigned from their jobs across the U.S. in 2021 and 2022.

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”
