The team at ITF puts your security as top priority. ITF Portfolios encrypts and stores your API keys with RSA encryption to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your Exchange Keys. Our limited API-connection has no withdrawal rights, meaning you and only you will have control over your funds at all times.
For now, our free plan gives you access to portfolio rebalancing, our preset investment portfolios, portfolio customization, and real-time performance tracking to help you easily and quickly view and assess your overall portfolio.
Premium users will receive all of the features above in addition to multi-exchange rebalancing, customized on-demand rebalancing periods, spread and slippage safeties, suggested portfolios, and access to our powerful backtesting engine to test your portfolio against historical data before executing your strategy on the markets.
As development progresses, we’ll add more assets, exchanges, and tools to help you view, assess, and better manage your asset exposure and your overall portfolio.
