Working at
Freetrade

At Freetrade, we believe investing should be open to everyone. It’s one of the best ways to grow your savings, but for a lot of people, investing seems complicated, expensive and out of reach. We want to change all that, which is why we're on a mission to get everyone investing! We are scaling our team to Europe and Stockholm, Sweden will be the first location. As the first challenger stockbroker to disrupt the £1.2 trillion retail investment market in the UK, we're poised to expand into Europe. We’ve just closed a Series B funding round led by New York-based growth fund, Left Lane Capital alongside L Catterton, and Draper Esprit, bringing the total that we’ve raised to over £67m and we’re just getting started! We're a technology company that brings simple, free stock investing to everyone. We’ve built a beautiful investing app to trade in real shares, with zero commissions in a fluid, mobile-first experience. We’re not building an app for day-trading. We will never offer things like leveraged derivatives which are proven to lose the majority of customers their money. We’re building an app that can offer the means to achieve better, long-term financial outcomes and maybe even help chip away at one of the biggest issues of this generation; financial inequality.
