โ˜‘ [Feature Request ๐Ÿ”ง] Nationality Declaration ๐Ÿ—บ

Would love for Freetrade to implement a nationality declaration form so that you are able to invest in defence stocks such as BAE Systems and Babcock International Group and airlines such as EasyJet, IAG and Wizz Air :smile:

I think the issue is more how would they pass that information on when doing a batch trade at 4pm?

I bet the new investment platform will tackle this issue easily :wink:

It is quite a mysterious aspect and not much has been shared yet. You can read about it in Freetradeโ€™s plans for 2019. Here is a quote:

Our new Freetrade Platform :keyboard:

Weโ€™re already changing the game for all investors with frictionless investing and beautiful user experience. But high fees and crappy apps arenโ€™t the only parts of the system that drastically need an update.

Now, to realise our biggest ambitions, weโ€™re going to go deeper and own every part of the investing process.

Since the summer weโ€™ve been working on our new Freetrade Platform. Ian, our VP of Engineering, is leading the charge and weโ€™ll be rolling it out in the first half of this year.

Thereโ€™ll be more details on this over the year. However, our work on this will enable big features and improvements. These include:

  • Freetrade Alpha
  • European expansion
  • A huge increase in the number of available US, UK and European (!) stocks
  • Even more venues for order execution
  • And โ€” drumroll โ€” fractional shares

Now with invest by Freetrade up and running will we see a nationality declaration form added to Freetrade so that we can purchase stocks like EasyJet and Rolls Royce?

Now that invest is finally launched it should theoretically be a little easier to implement.

At the last AMA I asked a question about the technicalities around nat. dec. @Viktor, I think you mentioned that there would be an update released on the forum in due course; are you hoping to release these soon?

I guess the interest in airlines may have dropped recently, but Iโ€™m still keen :slightly_smiling_face:

There will be a review of the current stock universe as we prepare to further expand it after the new US stocks, and part of that will be nationality declaration stocks. Weโ€™ll share updates as we have them. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.

I hope freetrade can add famous airlines as easy jet, ryanair, delta airline , and south west airlines.

I expect their are good investment for the future.

Welcome @amr_elkammash

You will find this is a fairly well requested sector.

Letโ€™s hope they can be added soon enough.

Airbus SE and other Airlines (Singapore, Lufthansa, Iberia, Embraer) and some Indian Stocks on Reliance JIO .

Patiently waiting like many others. I note that itโ€™s not specifically on the roadmap @Viktor but is it possible you might be able to give any insight into where this might be in the pipeline of things to do?

I do prefer the much needed features over these stocks but I hope we do see them soon :smile:

Weโ€™re sorry we couldnโ€™t prioritise this yet. Weโ€™re keeping it on top of the agenda.

Thanks for the update, Viktor. Is there a timeframe available on this? I myself (and Iโ€™m sure lots of others) would be eager to invest in airline stocks while theyโ€™re down at the moment!
