We empower millions of Europeans to put their money to work.

At Trade Republic, we believe everybody should have easy, fast and free access to capital markets.

So we built a bank from scratch.

A Republic. From the people, for the people.

As a Republic, we believe access to economic growth should not be a privilege. For decades banks have only offered opaque products for fat prices.

To change the system, Trade Republic has been building a bank from scratch since 2015. We offer a beautifully simple product everybody can afford. Yet, we are still a bank. We secure your money and protect your wealth.

So you can save money and build your wealth with free savings plans on ETFs and stocks. Invest in companies you love with commission-free trading or hedge the market with derivatives.

We are a tech company.
With a banking license.

Backed by the world's most renown technology investors.

  • Industry-innovating technology to save your money.

    Traditionally, you’d have to pay high fees as big banks run inefficiently, by the book and feel no need to fix that.

    We are driven to change this. We have built an entire bank from scratch to give you modern access to capital markets. With state-of-the-art technology, relentless automatisation and best-in-class engineering, we are creating the bank of the future. Simple, fast and free.

  • Disrupting how banks work. Since 2015.

    Having met in 2015, Thomas, Marco and Christian set out to build the investing experience they would want to recommend to their best friends. 

    Between 2015 and 2019, the team of three built the core of Trade Republic silently in a backyard in the heart of Berlin. They applied for a German banking license and iterated the product. 

    This spirit of innovation as well as true investment into the product iteration, banking infrastructure, and security define Trade Republic’s path for the future.

We're in the news.
