Innovation is at the core of our business.
While many competitors are stuck in their ways, at DEGIRO we embrace innovation from our unique offerings, below are the four pillars which we have built our business around.
Through DEGIRO, European investors are connected to the world’s markets. Unlike our competitors, many of whom only offer access to European and US exchanges, DEGIRO also offers access to markets in Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, and many more across the globe. This provides clients with the opportunity to benefit from a truly global diversification of assets.
In conjunction with its competitive pricing and a large selection of markets, DEGIRO also undertakes the innovative development of innovative trading tools. All of our platforms are developed in-house and tailored around the needs of our clients. Currently 400,000 clients are contributing to a better trading environment while simultaneously reaping the benefit of low commission and access to global exchanges. Never has it been so easy to achieve a well-diversified portfolio on a global scale.
DEGIRO were originally set up to facilitate institutional clients, this allows DEGIRO access to wholesale fees. Seeing the injustice of institutional’ s being able to benefit from wholesale fees but retail investors seeing no benefit, DEGIRO launched its platform to fight this injustice. Furthermore, DEGIRO offers an online-only platform, which allows further cost reductions to our clients. This platform is underpinned by state-of-the-art connectivity and server infrastructure, making the DEGIRO platform perfect for investors of all sizes who manage their portfolios online.
