At Freetrade, we believe investing should be open to everyone. It’s one of the best ways to grow your savings, but for a lot of people, investing seems complicated, expensive and out of reach.

We want to change all that, which is why we're on a mission to get everyone investing!

We're a technology company that brings simple, free stock investing to all. We’ve built a beautiful investing app to trade in real shares, with zero commissions in a fluid, mobile-first experience.

We’re not building an app for day-trading. We will never offer things like leveraged derivatives which are proven to lose the majority of customers their money.

We’re building an app that can offer the means to achieve better, long-term financial outcomes and maybe even help chip away at one of the biggest issues of this generation; financial inequality.

As the first challenger stockbroker to disrupt the £1.2 trillion UK retail investment market, we’re poised to expand into Europe in 2021, with a Headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden.

We have recently completed our £35m Series B funding round, led by Left Lane Capital with L Catterton, and existing investor Draper Esprit.

Complimented by our 2020 crowdfunding round, this brings our total funding to £74m so far and we’re just getting started.

We have also successfully launched various new revenue streams over the past few months, including our premium Plus’ membership and self invested personal pensions.

We are on track to double in size from 120 people to 200+ by the end of the year. Our customer numbers are 600,000 and counting, and we are receiving upwards of 4,000 new customer sign ups per day as of March 2021.
