Why get everyone investing?
In some ways, everyone is an investor already.
We invest our most important currency, our time, every day.
We also invest our money every day. Almost everything in modern life is made or provided by companies. And, companies are the primary way wealth is created in the world.
Our goal is to give access to everyone to benefit from that wealth creation. We believe we can make an impact on rising inequality and we can make the world a more equitable place by giving access to markets and educational information.
Why are we different?
We don’t think the investing industry works well for most current and future investors. High commissions and clunky products from traditional stockbrokers can make it complicated for people to start investing. Additionally, business models built on switching investors over to high-risk speculative products can cause general distrust.
That’s why we created Freetrade — to break down barriers and open up stock market investing to everyone, creating a stockbroker you can trust. We have a transparent and simple freemium pricing model,
and we’ve built the tech behind our award-winning app from the ground up.
How Freetrade started
Our Founder & CEO Adam Dodds relocated from Canada as a Manager at KPMG and had been investing since he was a teenager.
When he arrived in the UK, he was shocked by the quality of investment platforms here, in terms of cost and usability. They were all archaic and clunky, without good design and had little concern about fees.
They were not built to include even him, a financial services professional.
If you don’t like what’s available, you start to wonder whether you should build it yourself.
