Commission-free trading app BUX is expanding its Zero stock trading service even further across Europe. 

The Dutch fintech launched in Germany and Austria last month and has now rolled out its services in France too. 

BUX now counts 300,000 investors and customers, giving it the claim of being the largest neobroker in Europe. 

Nick Bortot, founder and CEO of BUX, said: “We believe that anyone can become an investor, and BUX Zero has created a humanized investing experience for a new generation of investors in Europe.” 

“Buying and selling shares should be simple and affordable, and we’re looking forward to making BUX Zero’s seamless experience available to French users.” 

Founded in 2014, BUX is available in nine countries across Europe and offers short-term, leveraged trading for its customers.  

BUX started out with its CFD trading app BUX X in 2014, later adding share trading with BUX Zero in 2019 and crypto trading in 2020 with BUX Crypto. 

Like its fellow trading apps, BUX has seen a jump in activity as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, which it is planning to use to its advantage and continue its expansion across Europe.
