Definitely, and I expect we’ll do that. It’s deeply interesting. Most customers care about the outcome of it, and it’s important to recognise that. We prefer to spend the majority of our limited comms resources on telling our community about the things that they actually care about.
Great to see so many of the communities suggestions on the roadmap as well. It’s a bit like the Acquired podcast w/ Xaoimi, where the users vote on a forum for what they want to see. Thanks a lot Viktor. Bookmarked!
Hey Kenny - that’s a good shout. We’re putting a talk together now for a future community event. Once dates are sorted we’ll announce on the community.
Edit: oops, missed @Viktor’s reply already!
Fractionals will include shares and ETFs. We’ll clarify this more clearly on the roadmap
Fractionals and instant deposits are the two most important things right now, they should be prioritised.
An expanded stock universe is great but most people can’t by an Amazon share cause of the cost.
True portfolio return is crucial, glad to see it actively being worked on!
One payment going being allocated to a portfolio of investments that you built: nice.
I’d love to see Lifestrategy or similar on Freetrade. There is clearly a market need for encouraging novice investors. But one problem with that and pre-made allocations might be that it’d qualify as Financial Advice, which I think Freetrade isn’t allowed to do.
They might not be qualified now - but if Nutmeg can get qualified, I am sure Freetrade could too. This will definitely be a smart acquisition strategy for novice investors who can then be educated and introduced to building their own portfolios all on freetrade.
Any chance you’d able to chuck this into the “better graphs” section?
Love a play on words and this message. Anything that clarifies & emphasises Freetrade is built for long term investing over short term trading is a differentiator.
Is the ramp up of new stocks part of the investment platform? Or still legacy infrastructure?
I’d like to see multi-currency as a separate deliverable. I guess it’s part of the European expansion, but it could come earlier, or include US$ when it does.
I might of found a hidden page on your website relating to this
All I want for Christmas are fractional US shares
Great news about hearing ISA transfers will start soon! When transfers are allowed in, will it also be technically possible to transfer an ISA away from Freetrade? I’d just rather not feel trapped, that’s all.
Absolutely, yes, in fact we already offer transfer out as cash with no fees.
Regarding the ‘new investment platform’, I’ve read previously that this will allow Freetrade to add thousands of stocks. There doesn’t seem to be reference to this above. Is there a timeline for when this will be complete and the thousands of stocks will be added?
For me, this is one of the key requirements as only having a few hundred stocks in the app really affects investment potential.
This is the one: https://trello.com/c/Tepvf8dI/2-🍄-10x-more-us-stocks
It’s a fair question though. 10x is not exactly thousands. That was the key factor (timeline wise) I bought into the most recent financing round. Can you please be more specific?
Will be good to get more ETF’s, are you going to be dropping anymore soon ?
