Subscription bundles

Hi,

I personally don’t need to upgrade to a paid plan, as the reduction in fx fees and additional stocks are outweighed by the fees I would pay in a year. This did get me thinking though. Something that would make that subscription worthwhile for me would be bundling of third-party resources into that subscription, similar to the Revolut paid plans.

Naturally, this may have been suggested already, so please reassign the topic etc if need be.

I currently pay a bundled price for WSJ, Barrons and Market Watch. However, I would love to be able to subscribe to FT, for example, but the fees are much higher than the bundle price I paid for the three I mentioned above. I also make use of Simply Wall Street and have a subscription there. Could Freetrade offer more value in its subscriptions by negotiating with these types of companies to get better rates (as Revolut would have done for their paid plans) and offer a set selection, or even better, allow us to pick and choose which products we would like in our customised bundle. Or, perhaps a Freetrade subscription would get you a reduced price if the full price can’t be in the subscription without Freetrade making a loss.

Here are some of the products I personally like, use or would want to use if it was included in the subscription or came at a lower price:

WSJ/Barrons
Financial Times
Simply Wall Street
AlphaSense
Y Charts
Morningstar
Quartr
Sharesight

Thanks

Great idea.

Especially the FT subscription. This is so expensive to buy alone that it almost makes it worthwhile signing up to Revolut premium plans just to get the FT.

It would also attract older users and those with larger portfolios.

Great idea. Bundling in subscriptions or offering a reduced rate would add a lot of value.

We find the bundling idea interesting. Too early to say anything more, but please keep the discussion going, and we are particularly interested in which bundled subs you all would find the most value in.

For me FT subscription is the main one - and I think the one most people would want. Also a great one to drive new customers to you - especially HNW.

Maybe discounted rates on some of the research platforms such as Sharepad or Stockpedia

Paid £140 for Revolut Metal ( up front ) to get the FT subscription. A great deal.

I also pay for revolute for the FT subscription but would love to have a bundle where you can get the Freetrade and other useful stuff with it as that would be a great addition and could generate more users as you would get more for your money.

FT is the obvious one as they are clearly interested in the model too

I like this idea too.

I previously paid for Simply Wall Street to help build my starter portfolio. I liked the interface and simplicity.

I stopped the subscription after 12 months as i felt i was no longer getting value (due to lack of planned changes to holdings in next 12 months).

A bundle price would be more appealing / viable.

I would welcome FT joining up with any analysis tool to provide a bundle…Simply Wall Street worked for me but im sure there are others too.

I would agree with FT & Simply Wall Street or similar ones to those and maybe morning star

Simply Wall Street, and unless dividend reporting gets more comprehensive then something like Stock Events or Dividend Watch.
