The investment product will be rolled out in Austria before expanding to the German market

N26 launches stock and ETF trading product

N26 customers can now buy and sell stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the N26 app.  

The launch of this new trading product, in partnership with Upvest, an investment API provider, sees N26 expand its offering beyond its digital bank accounts.   

The new product will allow customers to buy and sell partial shares, at 90 cents per trade, of European and US assets on the global equity market.  

N26 has initially made this product available to customers in Austria, with plans to expand to Germany and other countries.  

In the coming months, customers will also be able to invest regularly with fee-free savings plans. 

N26, founded in 2013 and headquartered in Germany, has 8 million customers in 24 markets and processes more than €100bn in transactions a year.  

Valentin Stalf, chief executive officer at N26, said: “N26 Stocks and ETFs will give our customers the ability to manage all their finances within the N26 app.  

“Our customers can spend, save and invest within one app at extremely competitive rates, with no hidden fees and an exceptional user experience.” 

N26 customers can also buy and sell crypto, including Bitcoin, Ether and Cardano, in the app. 

The digital bank tested its products in Brazil but last year decided to wind down its operations in the market to focus on Europe.
