German stocks have now arrived on your app as part of the European stocks rollout.

Our European stocks rollout continues.

German stocks have now arrived on your app as part of the European stocks rollout.

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.

Tell me more about German stocks?

There’s more to the German market than tech, tyres and trainers (though it is a bit of a heavyweight in all three).

The index has some big hitters in the healthcare sector like Berocca-maker Bayer, and the likes of insurer Allianz and Deutsche Bank represent a hefty financial sector.

But huge consumer stocks still lead the way, with Puma, Volkswagen and Continental some instantly recognisable names among the biggest firms.

Talking of names, look up insurer Munich Re’s full title. You don’t get spelling like that anywhere else.

You can now find 130 German stocks on your app, including:

  • Car makers BMW, Daimler and Porsche
  • Sportswear giants Adidas and Puma
  • Industrial conglomerates Siemens and ThyssenKrupp

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 Germany, this means all users will be able to access stocks on the main index of the exchange, the Germany 40.

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.
