The first batch of European stocks is here.

​​We have connected to the European markets, and we’re adding the first batch of European stocks to your app today. 🇪🇺

To kick things off, you can find a special collection of stocks direct from Finland as an early stocking filler. 🎅

Over the next few months, shares traded on other major European exchanges will also be available on your Freetrade app.

We’ve gone direct to pan-European exchanges to offer you the best possible experience.

This makes Freetrade one of a few brokerages in the UK offering direct access for retail investors to European markets.

What sets this new feature apart is ingrained in the DNA of Freetrade: investing time, energy and money into developing the right technology to build a sustainable business, supporting our clients throughout their lives.

In short, this is the most complex piece of engineering and operations work since we built the Invest platform in 2019/20.

Tell me more about Finnish stocks?

The Helsinki Stock Exchange opened in 1912. Like most exchanges, it started out as a cooperative owned by its members and local banks. 

Over the years the Exchange has evolved through a series of mergers to become part of the global exchange group, Nasdaq.

Industrials make up around a quarter of the Finnish market, with a strong presence from manufacturing and financial services companies.

You can now find 38 Finnish stocks from Nasdaq Helsinki on your app, including:

See the full list here.

Are these stocks available to all users?

We’ll be following the same principles for European stocks as we have for UK and US stocks.

For Finland, this means all users will be able to access stocks on the main index of the exchange, the Helsinki 25.

The remainder of stocks outside the main index will be for Standard and Plus customers only.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks and months as we roll out further European countries. 

Let us know how you're enjoying the Finnish stocks so far:
