The US share markets are huge. With Hatch, you can invest in over 5,800 companies and over 1,900 exchange-traded funds! One of the biggest fears we've heard from new investors is that they'll make the wrong decision. Spoiler alert, you will. We all do. Investing isn't about getting it right all the time, it's just about your money increasing in value overall.

How to browse companies and funds in Hatch

We've tried to make browsing shares easier by allowing you to slice and dice them in a few ways.

Browse by industry

Want to invest in Healthcare, Transportation or Entertainment industries? Filter by industry to see companies and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in those industries, and add them to your watchlist.

Filter shares based on certain criteria

Use our filter to find your next investment on your terms. Want to invest in dividend paying companies like Coca-Cola (KO), Walgreens (WBA) and McDonald’s (MCD), or, perhaps take a look at ETFs that pay dividends?

More of a numbers person? Filter companies and ETFs based on their value (market cap).

Check out the biggest movers and shakers 

Along with your classic sort options, you can also sort shares based on what's being traded the most on Hatch.
