At Bitpanda, we've built an investment platform that embodies our core belief— that investing should be easy and accessible for everyone. We are happy to announce that in addition to crypto, metals and crypto indices, you can now also invest in fractions of your favourite stocks and ETFs* from as little as €1, with zero commissions, tight spreads and 24/7 - even outside trading hours. To celebrate this new product, we’re giving you your first fractional stock for free - and we are also giving away a Tesla Model 3 Performance*!
Say hello to fractional stocks and ETFs on Bitpanda
The Bitpanda Stocks Beta offers the simplest way to invest in fractional stocks and ETFs (exchange-traded funds). To start investing, simply register on Bitpanda and download the Bitpanda app for iOS or Android. Then all you need to do is to deposit at least €25 to your Bitpanda account and invest in slices of your favourite companies starting from as little as €1.
Get a slice or invest in a whole stock
What is a fractional stock? A fractional stock is a smaller portion of a whole stock. Imagine a stock as a large cake. Someone cuts off slices in various sizes, creating smaller fractions. No matter the stock price, you can invest in slices of your favourite companies from as little as €1. Pretty cool, right?
Fractional stocks on Bitpanda are ideal for you if you are looking to diversify your portfolio or if you are investing on a budget. Also, it’s worth noting that dividends (earnings from your stocks) are paid out to you, even if you only hold fractions of a stock. Just make sure that you understand all the risks that come with this investment.
Invest 24/7 even outside trading hours, commission-free
The revolutionary nature of Bitpanda Stocks allows features that are not possible through traditional stock purchasing, such as 24/7 investing - even outside of trading hours - with tight spreads and zero commissions.
Bitpanda will not charge you commissions on your investments. Instead, a spread is applied when you acquire or terminate an investment, similar to the difference between the “buy” and “sell” rates when converting money at a foreign exchange. You can also find more detailed information in our cost document on every single Bitpanda Stocks asset page.
Build your portfolio with our growing collection
The Bitpanda Stocks Beta offers you access to invest in your favourite companies from around the world. However, this is just the beginning as we will be adding more fractional assets for you to invest in soon and on an ongoing basis thereafter.
Like with all the digital assets you can invest in on Bitpanda, you can also create savings plans for investing in your favourite companies at regular intervals, spend your Bitpanda Stocks with the Bitpanda Card or use them to make payments. Find out all about the first selection that we are listing here and invest in your favourites.
Invest with confidence on Europe’s #1 investment platform
Bitpanda Stocks are not actual stocks but financial instruments replicating the underlying stock or ETF. By investing in fractional stocks and ETFs on Bitpanda, you, as the investor, enter into a derivative contract that regulates all rights and obligations between Bitpanda and you regarding your investment. Each derivative contract is always worth as much as the respective stock or ETF.
Your digital securities are backed
Bitpanda owns the underlying stocks and ETFs that are available on our broker platform. All the stocks and ETFs are held by our custody bank and Bitpanda's buy and sell orders are executed by our exchange partner. As Bitpanda utilises a pledge agreement with the physically backed securities held by Bitpanda at its custodian bank, users taking part in Bitpanda Stocks benefit from reduced counterparty risk.
Unlike other brokers, Bitpanda will never sell your data to other financial firms or external partners.
Invest in line with EU regulations
The Bitpanda Stocks Beta is in full compliance with the latest regulatory measures, including the AML5 EU directive. Bitpanda Financial Services is an investment firm supervised by the Austrian Financial Market Authority and holds a MiFID II licence. Bitpanda uses a number of state-of-the-art measures to protect your account. All your investments in Bitpanda Stocks are also protected by a pledge agreement which covers up to 100% of your claims.
