Hey Product Hunt πŸ‘‹ I just wanted to share a bit more about our story! Freetrade was born from a frustration our team had here in the UK. We were all looking for a modern, simple mobile product for long-term investors that does not charge the typical Β£5-12 per transaction fees of traditional providers. In the process, we became a financial institution, directly authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK. We're also a member of the London Stock Exchange. 🎯 Our goal Investing is one of the best ways to secure your financial future. Our goal is to make investing accessible for everyone. We're live in the UK, soon in Europe, and eventually, everywhere. πŸ’Έ Zero-fee investing We charge no fees for our Basic Account, and you can choose from hundreds of UK and US stocks and ETFs. We'll only charge for the extras such as Instant Orders and tax-efficient accounts. Our thinking is that our revenue model has to align with our customers. We only succeed when our customers succeed. πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Customer service from real humans We believe in treating our customers fairly. Our customer service team will answer any questions you have, via chat directly in our app. πŸ‘― Community At the heart of Freetrade is our amazing community, sharing their feedback and ideas with us every day: https://community.freetrade.io/ We build the product with them, for them. For now, we're only live in the UK. If you live outside the UK, please leave your email on the website, and we'll keep you posted on our expansion. πŸ™ We'd appreciate your feedback, and we’re here to answer questions all day!

@aymancork Thanks, Ayman! There is a lot coming over the next few months. 😊
Congrats on the PH launch guys! About time πŸ˜‰ Been using it since the early Beta launch and loving it so far! UX is fantastic - it takes two taps and you have your shares (shout out to James πŸ‘πŸ») Looking forward to fractional shares!

@thisdickie Thanks, Sam! Yep, fractional shares are one of our 'next up' features! Here's our open product roadmap: https://www.notion.so/freetrade/...
I’ve been using Fairtrade for a month or so and it’s a revelation in terms of democratising investments. It’s super easy to get started, and I’m already up 10% thanks to Apple & Snapchat. One thing that needs improvements is the charts - it’d be good to see even something like Coinbase where you can thumb over the chart and it shows the price in daily intervals, rather than % increase over fixed day, week and months.

@andrewallsop Thanks, Andrew! This is spot-on feedback, and exactly what the Discovery & Insights team is working on this quarter. πŸ‘
Easily my favourite app right now, this team are unstoppable πŸš€ Everyone would be wise to keep an eye out for the next crowdfund... Looking forward to fractional shares and some ETFs with crypto exposure.
Congrats on the launch @v18n! Been a big fan of freetrade for quite some time now, think it all started when I stumbled on the design and fell in love!
