What is Bamboo?

Bamboo is an investment platform that enables people to invest in stocks listed on the U.S. stock market.

What is the Stock Market?

The stock market is where companies go to sell parts of their total value to the general public.

By joining Bamboo, we give you the ability to purchase a part of these companies and become a part-owner!

We help our customers bypass the whole stress of dealing with brokers directly as we are the link between you - the investor, and the broker.

We simplify and make the process more efficient for all parties involved.

We currently have over 3,000 stocks available.

How much do I need to start investing?

You can start investing with any amount you like!

Bamboo allows you buy shares in fractions so even if you don't want to buy 1 whole share, you can buy less. You can buy any stock with any amount you wish to, regardless of the share price.

However, you will need to have money in your Bamboo wallet with which you can start buying stocks. The minimum amount you can deposit in your wallet is $20.

How do I make profit from investing in stocks?

There are two primary ways to earn money from investing in shares:

  1. When the share/stock price rises and you sell at a higher price than when you bought. This is known as capital appreciation. For example, if you buy shares at $209, and the share price goes up to $250 and you sell the shares, you have made $41.

  2. When a company, whose shares you have bought, distributes dividends (a company may distribute profits to its shareholders by declaring partial or full dividends). Companies pay dividends from the profit they make within a period, or when they sell an asset. Not all companies pay dividends.

Making profit is dependent on the rise and fall of share prices on the stock market.

You also earn 0.05% interest annually on money in your Bamboo wallet which you have not used to buy shares.
