The world is yours
From the team that helped bring you TransferWise, say hello to Lightyear. A new way to invest your money globally from just £1 with no trading fees on stocks.
For too long investors in Europe have been getting the short end of the stick. Limited access to markets combined with high fees have put ordinary investors at a disadvantage.
We’re here to change that. Say goodbye to management fees and unnecessary barriers. Start investing based on your own strategy and beliefs.
Break free from fees
When we say commission-free, we mean it. Get unlimited access to over 1,500 global stocks with no account fees and no trading fees. In addition, every month, you get £3,000 free of foreign exchange fees, and after that there’ll be a 0.35% fee.
Invest from just £1
With fractional shares, you can invest in all of your favourite companies without high minimums or barriers to entry. Build a portfolio on your own terms by starting from just £1.
Investing shouldn’t have borders. On Lightyear, you’ll have a multi-currency account that lets you add, hold and invest in different currencies without being hit by sneaky foreign exchange fees on every trade.
Secure and trustworthy
We use best-in-class technology to keep your account secure. Investments under SIPC are protected up to $500,000 and the securities are kept under your name. Lightyear is an appointed representative of RiskSave, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN 775330).
The team behind the tech
At Lightyear we're more than tech. We’re an enthusiastic team of people that love investing. After spending many years collectively building TransferWise, Revolut and Pipedrive, we have had a front row seat to exciting new financial technologies. Investing, however, remains broken.
We waited for someone else to spot this... and then we waited some more. Now, it’s time to take things into our own hands and build the solution we’ve been looking for.
As with all investing your capital is at risk.
