Capital.com, a competitive global fintech company with already impressive retail trading services has made waves in the stock investment market by offering commission-free stock trading for its European clients. Introducing a new, dedicated stock dealing account, Capital.com Invest, the broker is rolling out zero-fee stock investment services for traders in Germany, France and the UK, with designs to expand the service through the rest of Europe.
“No Hidden Costs”
Jonathan Squires, the Chief Executive Officer at Capital.com, stated that the new service follows a “global rally in equity markets” after the broker reported a 78% increase in retail trading volume in the first quarter of 2021, alongside a 233% increase in their number of new traders.
“To enable our clients to diversify beyond derivatives trading and to allow them to take a more long-term investment view, we enabled commission-free stock dealing on Capital.com. With no hidden costs or mark-ups and with no fees to pay on deposits or withdrawals, we offer investors a truly commission-free experience. This means out clients can confidently invest directly in an underlying stock without incurring any additional costs or expenses.”
The new account option marks a commitment from the broker to lower the barriers to financial markets and supplying secure, transparent and competitive solutions to its clients.
A Leading Fintech Business
Capital.com’s new service is one of several competitive features of the technology-focused broker. Clients have access to MetaTrader 4 (MT4), one of the world’s most renowned forex and derivatives trading platforms, and their own web-based trading platform. Capital.com’s proprietary platform supports trading of all financial assets that the broker offers, alongside almost 80 technical indicators, extensive charting options, risk management tools and more.
The broker offers impressive educational material, including webinars, YouTube videos and the financial education app, Investmate, which boasts more than 30 separate courses with real-world examples and a sleek interface.
Even before their new initiative, the fully regulated broker made waves by amassing a two million-strong client base. Now, though, “Capital.com’s commission-free stock dealing capabilities will strengthen the company’s position as one of Europe’s fastest-growing investment trading platforms”, according to Viktor Prokopenya, one of the company’s founding investors.
