The future of investing is yours

From the team that helped bring you TransferWise, Robinhood and Revolut, say hello to Lightyear. A new way to invest your money globally from just £1 or €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.

The world in your phone

Invest in over 3,000 global stocks and funds from Europe, the US and beyond, with absolutely no trading, account or custody fees.

Say goodbye to high minimums and barriers to entry. With fractional shares, you can start building a portfolio with just €1/£1.

Freedom from fees

Financial freedom shouldn’t cost the world. Our multi-currency accounts allow you to deposit, hold and invest in global stocks and funds, all under one roof.

You can invest in local stocks completely free from fees. And when it comes to foreign exchange (FX), we charge a simple flat 0.35% fee.

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/€1.

Knowledge is power

A little knowledge goes a long way. Access live news feeds about the stocks you own, as well as professional analyst ratings & price targets.

We explain the lingo clearly to help grow your investing knowledge, and with Lightyear Profiles you can share strategies with your friends.

We’re proud to offer these features to help you build strong financial habits for life and become a more confident investor.


As with all investing your capital is at risk.

We use best-in-class technology to keep your account secure. We’re authorised and regulated as an investment firm by the Estonian Financial Supervision Authority (4.1-1/31) and are an appointed representative of RiskSave Technologies, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN 775330) in the United Kingdom.

The Estonian Investor Protection Sectoral Fund will guarantee and compensate your investments in the amount of €20,000.

Much better than Freetrade

This is probably the best beginner friendly trading app in the UK, and certainly much better than Freetrade.
Opening an acorn is easy, deposits are instant and most importantly withdrawals only take a few minutes to see the money in your bank!
The UI is very sleek and the app is easy to navigate.

I wish there was a stop loss feature which I rely on to limit my losses. Otherwise an excellent app. Well done.

Margin Mouse ,

Elegant UI

Very smooth user experience both onboarding and execution - limited on company fundamentals and charts however that’s not where the power of this app is and completely fair to not be a focus as adding too much could destroy the elegance of the app. Absolutely has a place in overall investing strategy - watching with interest as more entities are added.
