The Future of Brokerage Transactions
Ahrvo is a fintech company founded in March 2017. Ahrvo’s proprietary stock ranking system and resulting AhrvoScores™ help investors and traders of all backgrounds make timely and profitable investment decisions among more than 8000 stocks and ETFs. AhrvoScores looks at over 4 dozen subfactors that are highly correlated with price performance, subsequently grouping them into four main factors — Quality, Value, Growth, and Momentum. For the past ten years, the system has consistently outperformed the stock market (benchmark Russell 3000 w/dividends). The model’s performance report was generated by a third-party firm, EQM Capital LLC. The platform is available on iOS and Android. AhrvoDEEX allows Ahrvo to vertically integrate its existing business. AhrvoDEEX is the first blockchain exchange (brokerage) that rewards you in cryptocurrency for trading equities. Once launched, the Ahrvo app will run on AhrvoDEEX.

AhrvoDEEX platform will trade traditional equities, not tokenized equities. Our focus is on accelerating the adoption of blockchain within equity markets by integrating into the brokerage system. As a result, AhrvoDEEX can onboard clients from traditional brokerages through the automated customer account transfer system (ACATS), providing access to trillions in brokerage assets from inception. This allows the network to scale due to the ease of adoption- users can roll over existing brokerage and retirement accounts without liquidating their portfolio.
