Simple and functional
I love this app, so way to use and I have had none of the problems reported by others. Although not necessary I would suggest that you at least understand the basics of investing before using and sign up to the community. Pay attention to costs and fees that there are surrounding ETF’s, do your own company research and consider other ISA investment platforms if you are a low level user but other than that I was up and running in no time at all. My only issue is no quick link to the community which is a great source of information and a place to while away the time waiting for a result. Certainly not for the gamers, gamblers and Warren Buffets of this world if you want the stress of sweating on a share price, but then if you haven’t assessed your risk levels you shouldn’t really be investing in the first place.
Easy, but still dangerous
On Freetrade’s platform and pricing:
The app is targeted towards amateur investors, welcoming them into investing in the most seamless way possible. The app itself is very easy to use, albeit almost “gamifies” investing which may be quite dangerous, and I’m not sure if I agree with. This is shown through various examples such as a limited amount of information being provided for each stock, making it incredibly easy to buy/sell stocks, and getting free stocks for getting someone to sign up and top up as if it were a game. I am not saying I think every investing platform should have an overly complicated UI, but perhaps there is a reason not everyone should get into investing. The charges are reasonable for the amateur investor, but only for someone in a very small investing bracket: for a person who wants to try day trading, 1£ per instant order makes no sense, and is absolutely a steal; for a longer term investor who is an average person with no extreme wealth background, 36£ per year (3£/mo) for an ISA is also a bit of a steal. Nonetheless the basic feature of the app provides an ideal introduction for someone starting out in investing. The only concern I have is in terms of the app functionality, where at times features may not work, such as Apple Pay top ups, which seriously limits my capacity to trust the platform. This is our money we’re dealing with after all.
Good but needs work.
I understand this is a relatively new platform, so teething problems are expected and that’s how systems get better. This has been a good app for me as I’ve been able to dive straight into the stock market and experience the excitement and devastation of earning and losing money. This platform isn’t great if you’re looking to day trade as the charts are very much delayed and inaccurate, however it is possible to use other charts and just purchase the stock through the app. This app stands out as the fees to date are free and you can execute a trade at no charge, other than small amounts of tax for each trade. Other platforms charge anywhere from £7-14 for one trade which is extortionate for someone having a dabble with a couple of hundred pounds. I would definitely recommend this app to experience the high and lows of buying stocks, but it’s very difficult to judge the market especially when you’re up against advanced AI systems that execute trades automatically. Be mindful and be careful and only invest what you can afford.
