This promotion is available to SIPP customers who have not funded their account as per 22nd November 2021.

Step 1: Head to your SIPP account in the Freetrade app
Step 2: Click the 'Contribute' button to transfer money or 'Transfer a pension' to start transferring old pensions to your Freetrade SIPP by 6th December 2021. Terms apply.

⚠️ Make sure that the Freetrade SIPP is the right pension plan for you, and that making any transfers to it would be in your best interests.


When will this promotion end?

6th December 2021, at 23:59.

When will I get my free share?

We will award your free share within 30 days of the first time you funded your SIPP account or once your pension transfer started before the 6th December has been completed.
To qualify for this giveaway, pension transfers must be initiated by 6th December 2021. The free share is yours for as long as you want it unless you transfer out or close your Freetrade SIPP within a year of opening it, in which case the value of the share awarded will be required to be repaid. Terms apply.

Your free share will land in your General Investment Account (GIA).

Why does the free share have to go into my General Investment Account?

For tax reasons, we’re not able to place your free share into your SIPP.

What free share will I get?

You can see example free shares in the table below:


* Examples of stocks that are at or above the minimum value you could get with your portfolio size, and we plan to give out as of 10th August 2021. Please note that share prices go up and down. We will assess that a share's value meets the minimum value threshold at the point of purchasing, based on independent third party data feeds, at our sole discretion.

What happens if I close my Freetrade SIPP within a year of opening?

You will forfeit your free share, or the amount equal to the value of the free share at the time of awarding. You will have to repay this amount to Freetrade.

I already have a pension account elsewhere, can I transfer it?

You’ll normally be able to transfer your pension from a different provider (subject to terms and conditions). There will be no fees from us for doing so, though your provider may charge you exit fees. It is up to you to ensure this is the right thing for you to do, with the help of a financial adviser, if required. Alternatively, you can choose to have a Freetrade SIPP as well as another pension plan.
