Commission-free trading app BUX is expanding its BUX Zero stock trading service even further across Europe, today launching in Belgium. 

Just last month, the fintech launched BUX Zero in France after having introduced the commission-free trading platform to Germany and Austria at the beginning of July. 

Since its launch in its home country of The Netherlands in September 2019, BUX Zero has now been made available in five countries across Europe. 

The fintech’s fee-free trading option has over 300,000 customers, including 100,000 in Germany alone, making it the largest mobile broker in Europe. 

Nick Bortot, founder and CEO of BUX, said: “We are looking forward to being able to provide all Belgians the option to invest commission-free for the first time. ” 

“We’re proud of the work we’ve done to lower the barriers of entry with BUX Zero. In addition to making cost a smaller obstacle, we’ve also stripped away the complexity of investing by making the experience of buying and selling shares as simple and easy-to-understand as possible,” he added. 

Since its launch in 2014, BUX has amassed more than 2.5m users across nine European markets and has tripled its assets under management during the coronavirus pandemic.
