Trade Republic Launches Bond Trading

    • As the first European broker, Trade Republic now enables its customers to invest in government and corporate bonds as of 1 euro
    • This allows investors to secure long term high interest rates and further diversify their portfolio
    • Trade Republic will pass through 4% interest p.a., on uninvested cash, to its existing and new customers as of October 1, 2023

    BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trade Republic expands its offering: from now on, customers can invest in 500 liquid government and corporate bonds on a daily basis to secure high interest rates over the long term.

    “Especially in the current environment, bonds are an important asset class to benefit from high interest rates over the long term. We are the first broker in Europe to open up this asset class to retail investors,” says Christian Hecker, co-founder of Trade Republic. “Until today, investors had to rely on expensive banks or advisors to access the bond market. With this new offering, we are taking another step to make the capital market accessible for more people.”

    Trade Republic solves two challenges of the bond market for its investors: high minimum investments and low liquidity. As the first in Europe, Trade Republic offers 500 liquid government and corporate bonds, in which investments can be made with just 1 euro. As always: no order commission and only a third-party fee of 1 euro fixed per trade.
