Our vision

Our story

In 2013, DEGIRO revolutionised retail investing with the launch of our online brokerage services in the Netherlands, introducing a level playing field for retail investors. Since then, we have expanded across 16 European countries enabling retail investors everywhere to benefit from our incredibly low fees and award-winning platform. As a result, we have quickly become the leading broker in Europe.

In 2020, we joined forces with German broker flatex.

As a result, DEGIRO B.V. merged with flatexDEGIRO Bank AG in early 2021, creating flatexDEGIRO: one of the biggest online execution-only brokers in Europe with its own banking license.

Continued growth

In 2021, we added an extensive amount of financial data, such as ESG ratings and analyst views, began rolling out flatexDEGIRO Cash Accounts, a new solution of holding uninvested money, and increased our list of commission-free ETFs. We also began offering investing on Tradegate Exchange.

The next chapter

In 2020, we joined forces with flatex AG, becoming one of the biggest brokers in Europe. We also were included in the SDAX, making flatexDEGIRO one of the 160 largest listed companies in Germany. Collectively we now server more than 1 million investors.

A new trading platform

In 2019 DEGIRO launched its new trading platform based on client feedback and the changing technology. Thanks to these clients, DEGIRO has won multiple international awards again this year. On top of that, more than 1 milion clients now benefit from DEGIRO's services.

More than 350,000 clients and 40 awards

In 2018, DEGIRO surpassed 350,000 clients. Thanks to these clients, DEGIRO has won over 40 broker awards internationally, including the Best Broker and Best Mobile App Award, given by the Financial Times & Investors Chronicle.

In 2017, DEGIRO surpassed 200,000 clients and became one of the five largest brokers in Europe based on transactions per year. DEGIRO continued to win numerous awards including Best Broker in Germany from the Handelsblatt Broker Comparison.
