Building Freetrade

Beta testing for Freetrade Web is here

We’re rolling out the beta version of Freetrade’s web interface, Freetrade Web, for Plus members to test.

Plus members are now able to view their portfolio in their preferred browser and provide feedback to help build Freetrade Web. 

Why web?

We’re building Freetrade to be the home for your life savings. To grow your net worth over decades. It only makes sense to give you flexibility in how you view your investments and their performance. 

And a web interface has been one of the most highly-requested features from the community.

However, launching Freetrade Web is not simply a matter of making the app fit your browser.

In order to build the best experience for desktop users we’ve built a new modern web platform from the ground up. This will allow us to make use of the flexibility and extra screen space that you get with web browsers to offer deeper and richer insights.

We’re building this tailored web experience to complement your Freetrade app, so that you can track your portfolio performance in the way that works best for you. 

This is what we call a minimum viable product (or MVP). Nowhere near what we want or expect of Freetrade Web! 

We want to build this in public, working with the community of engaged Plus members to understand what features are must-haves.

This initial release allows you to view your portfolios on desktop, but not much more. We’re definitely not stopping here. 

To give you a taste of what’s coming next, our vision is to develop the perfect platform for research and execution of your investments. 

Our top priorities are to ship features that help you in the discovery of new investments, building on what we have in the app, and adding unique web focused features where feasible.

So if you’ve got a Plus subscription, head to to log in and view your portfolio. When you enter your email address, we’ll send you a magic link. Click on this link in your desktop browser to access Freetrade Web.

If not, why not get a Plus subscription today to try the new Freetrade Web beta. We are also exploring ways to bring Freetrade Web to more subscribers in future.

This should not be read as personal investment advice and individual investors should make their own decisions or seek independent advice.

When you invest, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
