DEGIRO Retailises European Online Brokerage With Zero Commission Trading on Top US and European Exchanges

Share

Today, flatexDEGIRO (WKN: FTG111, ISIN: DE000FTG1111, Ticker: FTK.GR), Europe's largest and fastest-growing pan-European retail online broker announced the introduction of zero commission trading at DEGIRO, starting as of 22 November 2021. DEGIRO customers across Europe will thereby be able to trade without any commission over 5,000 US equities directly on the leading US exchanges NASDAQ and NYSE. Additionally, in the most important growth markets, France, Spain, Portugal and Italy, as well as in Sweden and Denmark, they will trade all ETFs commission-free as well as equities on the respective local Tier 1 exchanges, including Euronext Paris, and Lisbon, NASDAQ Stockholm, Bolsa de Madrid and Borsa Italia.

For the very first time, European retail investors will be able to trade at zero commission without having to compromise on quality, service, security, product choice or place of execution. flatexDEGIRO leverages its technological edge, its financial strengths and the scale of its market-leading pan-European online brokerage business to make this unique offer. The attractiveness and quality of the offer is expected to lead to an increasing revenue base and additional economies of scale which, together with optimised monetisation, should strongly improve flatexDEGIRO's operating profitability.

Frank Niehage, CEO of flatexDEGIRO: "With 'DEGIRO goes zero', we are changing the face of online brokerage in Europe. DEGIRO provides the lowest prices in the market with full cost transparency and no compromise on quality. We are now not only leading in platform and product but also in price. This will further increase the attractiveness of long-term investing and trading on our platform for millions of Europeans. No one interested in online brokerage should ever again feel the need to trade with brokers who supposedly charge no commissions but offer only intransparent and low-quality alternatives."

Muhamad Chahrour, CEO of DEGIRO and CFO of flatexDEGIRO: "It's as simple as that: for years, many so-called 'neo-brokers' claimed to offer zero commission trading - but at what costs? Clients were attracted to trade either highly risky CFDs or with market makers having intransparent product-pricing and scrutinised payments for order flow. No retail customer should ever again accept this specious trade-off. We promised to retailise capital market access - this is exactly what we now do with this revolutionary step. DEGIRO launches the first fair and most transparent zero commission retail brokerage, not relying on any payment for order flow."

Complex variable fee structures for external cost such as exchange fees and regulatory costs will be eliminated by a transparent and simple flat handling fee of as little as 50 Cents per transaction. DEGIRO also supports the best access to international equity markets with transparent and outstanding FX services and fees, including one of the lowest FX fees in the whole financial industry of just 0.25%.

NextSense Emerges to Unlock Brain Health with Key Partners UCB, Heraeus, UC San Diego, and Emory University3.12.2021 16:00:00 CET | Press release

NextSense, the foundation of brain health, came out of stealth with an announcement made from the AES (American Epilepsy Society) Annual Meeting in Chicago, where NextSense and its partners are presenting the results of their research on seizure detection to peers in academia and industry for the first time. NextSense unlocks brain health with real world data insights and practical, scientific wisdom for daily living. Traditional brain health monitoring technology like EEG machines and polysomnograms are too bulky for home use, requiring patients to stay overnight at hospitals or sleep study clinics for observation. The high cost of care and lack of comfort of these devices makes long-term and continuous monitoring nearly impossible. Not only are these data based on a single timeframe, they observe what is anything but an ordinary night’s sleep.
