About DEGIRO

DEGIRO is the first pan-European broker offering clients access to over 60 exchanges worldwide for some of the lowest fees available.

DEGIRO began as an institutional broker in 2008 servicing professional clients. In September 2013 DEGIRO launched its online retail brokerage service in the Netherlands offering retail investors the same fees as professional clients. This announcement caused a shockwave throughout the broker landscape and captured widespread media attention upon launch. In many areas, this immediately made DEGIRO the most competitive online broker in the world.

Today DEGIRO has grown substantially with over 200,000 clients using the platform.  DEGIRO is active in 18 countries, employing 180 people.

Due to its low transaction fees, DEGIRO appeals to every investor in search of an execution-only stockbroker. The WebTrader is user-friendly enough for new investors while more experienced investors can benefit from access to a large number of financial instruments and markets.

In 2008 DEGIRO began providing services to professional investors. In 2013, our fully in-house developed platform was made available for private investors. This was the first time that a broker brought retail clients access to institutional trading rates on such a large scale.

DEGIRO is an execution-only broker which means that we do not give investment advice or manage your assets. We focus only on the execution or transmission of your orders. By focusing on this we can do so quite efficiently allowing us to pass on our savings in costs to clients. We don’t consider DEGIRO to be cheap so much as other brokers are needlessly expensive.

No. After the end of the financial year, DEGIRO will release an annual report of the activity on your account. This report is not intended as tax report although it can be a very helpful document when completing your tax return. The report can be found under the Reports tab on your WebTrader.

Stamp Duty is collected on all applicable purchases that are electronically settled. With DEGIRO, all transfers are electronically settled and thus the exemption for non-electronic settlements under £1000 does not apply. For more information please see here.
