Trade Republic, Europe’s largest savings platform, is now giving its customers 2 percent p.a. interest on their cash balance. This enables them to easily benefit from the increased ECB rates. Trade Republic offers a market leading effective interest rate for both new and existing customers. This offer is not time limited and holds until further notice. The interest is calculated in real time and paid out monthly, thus enabling customers to accrue compound interest. With the introduction of the interest, Trade Republic now doubles down on its mission to set up its customers for long-term wealth creation and saving up for retirement.
“With 2 percent effective annual interest per year, we are passing on the benefits of the new interest rate environment directly to our customers. Every investor can now benefit directly and easily from interest”, says Christian Hecker, Co-Founder of Trade Republic. “Exactly four years ago, we were among the first providers in Europe to introduce commission-free investing. Now, we are taking another step on our mission to make wealth accumulation possible for everyone. Today, Trade Republic is the most attractive place to save and invest your money.”
With the European Central Bank rising rates, reversing a multi-year trend of negative rates, interest based savings have once again become attractive. Trade Republic is the first broker to seize on the opportunity to pay interest on all customers’ uninvested cash assets. With an effective annual interest of 2 percent p.a. for all existing and new customers, Europe’s largest savings platform clearly sets itself apart from the competition. The duration of the offer is not limited and the interest rates will be valid until further notice. The interest income is calculated in the app in real time and credited monthly. The offer applies to cash balances of up to EUR 50,000. The customer funds are protected up to EUR 100,000 by the deposit guarantee schemes (DGS).
A Trade Republic account can be opened in only five minutes in the app or via desktop. Customers can invest in Europe’s largest ETF savings plan offering free of charge. In addition, Trade Republic also offers fractional trading for almost all stocks. This allows customers to invest any budget, including highly priced individual stocks such as Booking.com or Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.
Trade Republic is active in 17 European countries and is supervised by BaFin and Bundesbank.
