The new Stocks and ETFs trading product will allow customers to buy and sell shares of hundreds of the most popular European and US assets, and invest in global ETFs. The range of assets available to trade is set to expand progressively to over a thousand stocks and ETFs in the coming months.

With a simple pricing structure of a fixed 0.90 EUR per trade, German customers will be able to invest at one of the most competitive prices in the market, without being charged commissions or custody fees. N26 customers with N26 You and N26 Metal memberships will also be able to benefit from free trades as part of their subscription. N26 You customers will have 5 free transactions per month included as part of their membership, while N26 Metal customers will get 15 free transactions per month.
