Welcome to Fintech Referrals. My name is Thaddeus McCarthy, and I'm a Retail Trader and Investor from Wellington, NZ. I have been trading the markets since 2006. I am passionate about researching products, companies and stocks. To reduce risk, I trade through a number of brokers, and invest across different markets and sectors.

The purpose of this website is to provide easy access to a few of the investment platforms that I use. 

My role is not to provide financial advice, but to provide easy access to some great trading and investing software. I only work with companies who offer double-sided Referral Programs; so we will both get paid when you sign up! Any thoughts that I do share through my blog should not be intended as financial advice.
