Stocks within exchanges inside the EU bloc? Or Europe in general? Thinking of Mosco Exchange, Iceland Exchange & Armenian exchange as the larger exchanges not within the EU? The latter two being part of nasdaq nordic which is HQd in Sweden, and of course many other exchanges around Europe. Are we looking at a specific scope? Euonext? euronext and nasdaq nordic? Or European continent?
I noticed on the FCA page passporting for Gibraltar… GSX access?
For me Orsted, Neoen, Fastned and NEL are clean tech stocks I would love access to. Lack of EU stocks is holding me back from building an ISA and SIPP on Freetrade ATM so progress on this front would be a big one for me!
Freetrade is a very new and relatively small broker, so at the moment they are only able to deal in stocks that are listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE and AIM), New York Stock Exchange, and NASDAQ. As they grow, they will eventually set up arrangements to trade on European stock exchanges, but they’re just not big enough for that yet.
They are not though. if you search for Europe expansion on this forum they been talking about this for years. I invest in USd stocks though, but managing expectations is kind of important if you promise something.
Also, I see way more value in US-listed stonks because of tech, biotech, etc…
thats why you hire people and delegate. Revolut seems to be just as old as freetrade?
I would certainly call Freetrade very new: they only started doing stock trading in late 2018. The established major brokers have a huge head start: Hargreaves Lansdown (1981), Interactive Investor (1995), iWeb (2003), and so on. Yes, Freetrade has had ambitions to include European stock exchanges probably since they began (and also to serve European customers, which is what they mean by ‘European expansion’), but I’m not very surprised that they haven’t achieved that yet – and personally, I think there are other features that are higher priorities. Presumably they haven’t raised enough funding to accomplish everything they would like to do yet.
Revolut is even newer to stock dealing, they only started that in 2019 (they were a banking app before that). And Revolut only deals in NYSE and NASDAQ stocks, so they are still behind Freetrade.
Freetrade is more often compared with Trading212, which started offering stock trading in 2017 (they were a forex company before that). They do offer several European exchanges, which could be related to their earlier start, or perhaps European exchanges were a higher priority for them because they started in Bulgaria.
Hi @Bolatov welcome to the community hope you stick around and find this a useful place to visit.
The EU roll out is expected ‘shortly’ starting with Sweden before heading into France in 2022. I don’t know how much you know about ADR’s which until recently we’re not supported on the platform. A week or so ago we saw share chats added for both Danone & Nestle which means they’re due to go live soon. If you comment on the threads you should hopefully get a notification when that happens.
