  • 1.1m users, over 600% since May 2020’s crowdfunding
  • £1bn in client assets
  • £50m oversubscribed Series B in 2020 with world-class growth investors
  • Rolling out EU stocks in anticipation for launch across Europe

IdeaEdit

Freetrade is an award-winning, commission-free investing app. Our mission is to get everyone investing.

Investing is one of the best ways to grow your money over the long-term, but high commissions and clunky products have made it complicated for people to start and grow their investments. We have a simple, freemium pricing model, and have built the tech behind our award-winning app from the ground up.

The 18 months since our last crowdfunding has seen Freetrade become a mainstream provider of general investment accounts, stocks and shares ISAs, and self-invested personal pensions, with over 1.1m users and £1bn in client assets.

Earlier this year, we raised £50m in an oversubscribed Series B with world-class growth investors including Left Lane Capital, L Catterton, and Molten Ventures.

Our proprietary brokerage system, the Freetrade Cloud Platform (FCP), has supported this surge in customers while keeping costs low. It’s the foundation we've used to roll out new products and features like live pricing, instant bank transfers, and pensions. In the next few weeks, we will start rolling out access to European stocks. As a part of this, we connected FCP to the European market infrastructure, which will enable us to launch in Sweden and the rest of the EU.

We are raising with the aim of supercharging our growth, allowing us to grow engineering & marketing internationally.
