Freetrade which is set to launch in mid 2017 is an app designed to make investing in stocks and shares easier and commission free. It is a platform that makes investing in the stock market easy and affordable.

This is a breath of fresh air considering most brokerage platforms in the UK charge commissions of £10 per investment. It is also worth noting at this point that trading platforms such as ig, cityindex and etoro offer ‘free trades’ but these platforms are used for short-term traders as opposed to long term investors such as myself. So if we look purely at the platforms that investors use, freetrade is the cheapest by far.

Freetrade also allows investors to buy fractional shares. This means that if BP is trading at £5, you’d still just be able to invest £1. This is similar in concept to the other free platform in the US, Loyal 3

Are there any hidden charges with Freetrade?

As the app has not yet launched, I cannot be sure about this. But from what I understand, the platform offers fee free share dealing for trades executed at the end of the day. This looks like a really good deal!

Instead of charging a dealing fee, Freetrade will look to make money by charging you a monthly fee for holding shares in a tax wrapper such as an iSA or SIPP – like all the other brokers do. The charge for holding shares in an ISA looks to be £3 a month which is still way cheeper than most other platforms.




When is Freetrade launching?

Freetrade looks set to launch the app on iOS (apple) in the next few month giving us a timeline of mid to late 2017. It looks like Freetrade will employ an invite only approach at launch so follow this link to get access.

The Android app will take a little longer to launch and I am expecting this to come online at some point in the second half of 2017.

I for one will be waiting for the launch of Freetrade eagerly and see if it makes sense to transfer my investments to them.

If you are interested in Free Trade and want the latest information on the release date and how the app works, have a look at my new article titled: Freetrade – A look at the new fee free share dealing platform.
