I’d like to have ability to transfer out basic & ISA accounts out to a different broker, in-sitsu (without selling everything into cash).
Freetrade is great, transfer in is great, but tides may change and it might be beneficial for someone to move to a different broker. Thus transfer out should be supported. Possibly with a fee, or like “transfer all & close account” way, to deter people from abusing freetrade simply for their fee free / low cost execution.
There could be multiple reasons for transfering out, due to product decisions of things that freetrade might not implement: lack of debit card topups, flexible ISA, investments into funds/trusts/PIBS/bonds, size of stock universe, fees, direct debit investments, etc. Nothing inherintly good or bad, just different choices and offering.
