BUX becomes largest neobroker in Europe

AMSTERDAM, NL, July 20, 2020 -- Today, BUX launched its zero-commission investing app to French users, making it the first neobroker of its kind in the market. This will be the third country launch for BUX in 2020, following a successful launch in Germany and Austria earlier in the year. This brings BUX’s overall user base to more than 300,000 users, making BUX the largest neobroker in Europe.

“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.” Said Nick Bortot, Founder & CEO. “We are proud to announce that we have become the largest neobroker in Europe and we look forward to bringing the benefits of BUX Zero to many more European markets.”

Earlier in July, BUX released its newest feature in BUX Zero, Stories. This feature, a first of its kind for a broker, allows users to stay up-to-date with the latest market updates and follow what’s new in the BUX Zero app. BUX is looking forward to continuing its expansion across Europe, with further country roll-outs planned for the rest of 2020 and 2021.
