MEGATHREAD: German stocks 🇩🇪

Hi everyone,

We’re starting the year off with a bang with the arrival of German stocks to your app! :boom:

You now have access to some of the world’s most famous brands including sportswear giants Adidas and Puma, vehicle powerhouses Volkswagen and BMW and titans of industry like Siemens and Thyssenkrupp.

Like other markets, we’ll be making all the largest German stocks by market cap, those that feature in the Germany 40, accessible to all customers.

In order to access the full list of stocks you will need to be a Plus member. Details on how to upgrade today can be found here.

Freetrade is one of only a few platforms to enable UK retail investors direct access to the European market, rather than having to invest via a CREST Depository Interest (CDI).

Keep your eyes peeled as more European markets will be added over the coming weeks.

The full list of German stocks is below and you can find them on the Discover tab of your Freetrade app now. All German stocks are ISA and SIPP eligible.

Investments may go down as well as up and you may get back less than the amount you invested.

Great work everyone. Are there plans to expand the number of German shares in future? I’m particularly keen on HelloFresh (HFG), the Berlin-based meal-kit company.

Got one share of E-ON. I’m quite bullish on energy and utilities sector full stop.

What are the opening hours for the German markets?

Any reason why SAP SE aren’t included? I believe they are a member of the DAX40. I know I can buy ADR $ versions but prefer to buy the euro ones at the moment.

I have read that German security dividends are taxed at 25% + a 5.5% ‘solidarity’ tax on the the 25%.

Not sure if there is a reduction for UK residents. Anyone know details?

Best regards

Can you update the Stock List page on this as well

Good job Freetrade, keep it up!!

Looks like whole shares only for now.

That’s right I believe for German residents. If your tax residency is outside of Germany, you are not liable for this tax, the logic is that you would be taxed in your home country.

I think you are talking about Kapitalertragsteuer. For those who can read German, this article is pretty clear steuerauslander
