Front Financial is an investing app powered by real investors and smart technology. It helps users to connect their brokerage accounts, get free portfolio scores, analyses, and get inspired by the community's points of view concerning investments.



Added a feature to the app in order to organize content and provide clarity on the content available on the Home feed.

The recommendation cards are designed to help the users to know what the best performing assets are and have an overview of what people are saying about those assets in one place.

My individual contribution

In my capacity as the Head of UX, I actively oversaw all facets of the project, delving into data, feedback, and user testing results. The identification of a user task issue on our home feed prompted me to personally spearhead the project.

I played a hands-on and integral role in shaping the project's design direction. Collaborating directly with the team, I engaged in problem discovery and ideation, personally steering the UX process from its inception to the creation of high-fidelity wireframes.

My involvement extended beyond the conceptual phase, as I worked closely with the CEO, marketing, and development teams at various levels. This hands-on approach ensured that the project not only reached its full potential but also meticulously adhered to constraints throughout its development.

Current Situation

Here's a summary of analytics and user testing results, as well as observations of people interested in investments but lacking stock market knowledge, and those who would like to receive analyzed information on the current homefeed.

Research summary

The posts were clicked by less than 5 percent of users, and almost no one posted.

Based on our data analysis and user testing, we found that the home feed content doesn't have the expected interaction. In spite of this, the users on our user testing found both, the concept and content attractive and useful, however, observing their actual behavior and the data, we found that there is very little engagement with the home feed.

Mid-fidelity wireframes - Recommendation cards.

Based on the main needs identified through studying the journey map, we have created recommendation cards to replace the asset recommendations on the home feed. This is aimed at providing users with access to the complete package of information about the asset, encompassing both social media posts and the asset's most important details.

Mid-fidelity wireframes - Asset detail page.

Consolidated the social posts on the Asset's detail page to increase accessibility and findability.

High-Fidelity Prototypes

Presented the high performing assets in a categorized format:

Having considered both the needs for asset research as well as reading people's opinions, we came up with the idea of creating cards on the homepage to highlight the best performing assets

The needed data is consolidated on one screen for easy access:

We provide an array of services to meet the user's needs during this journey. To make these services more accessible, we put them on one screen.
