For the 3rd of February we’re launching 3 new European markets on your Freetrade app! You can now access stocks from Belgium, Portugal and Austria.
Like other markets, we’ll be making all the largest Belgian, Portuguese and Austrian stocks by market cap accessible to all customers. These are stocks that feature in the Brussels 20, Lisbon 20 and Vienna 20.
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 new stocks is below and you can find them on the Discover tab of your Freetrade app now.
Investments may go down as well as up and you may get back less than the amount you invested.
Glad to see some good stocks there and plenty of Free ones.
Bpost is Pro, but frankly I could never invest in them because I hate bpost with a vengence and should never invest out of principle. They charge all my clients excessive fees and the amount of stuff I got returned from Royal Mail to me from Belgians who refuse the import administration fees was significant. Rant over
BNB is missing - Banque National de Belge. They are a large bank
Glad to see Belgium, looking forward to Poland stock exchange (WSE). I’m seriously upset that you haven’t included Lotus Bakeries (LOTB:EN Brussels) from Belgian Euronext Brussels.
Lotus Bakeries are makers of Biscoff, which is taking over cafes, pastry stores and supermarket shelves internationally and despite a recent draw down, their stock has been doing better than most.
Please add Lotus Bakeries from Belgium soon!
How does this work when we buy? Is there an equivalent of W8BEN form to sign or does FT just tax for us and none of our details are passed onto the relevant country, or do we get the payments gross and submit tax declarations to the relevant tax authority?
The devil is in the details, so please spill these for us to dive in? Each persons’ situation might well differ.
