Here are some of the benefits of the Trading 212 App:
  • £0 Commission Investing – It’s not that long ago that you had to pay at least £10 even for a small transaction through a broker and still do with lots of brokers.
  • £0 Fee Stocks & Shares Isa – No ongoing monthly or annual fees are charged to hold the S&S Isa.
  • Fractional Shares – A real game changer for the small investor who may not be able to afford some of the shares that run to hundreds and even thousands of pounds for a single share. You can now buy a fraction of the likes of Amazon or Tesla shares for just a few pounds.
  • Buy Global Stocks & ETFs – There are over 10,000 stocks and ETFs available and the number is increasing continually.
  • AutoInvest & Pies – A fairly recent addition last year allows these well received features to help you with your investing.
  • No Foreign Exchange Fees – When you buy a foreign stock Trading 212 will automatically deal with the foreign exchange and charge no fees.
One of the questions that gets asked a lot about Trading 212 is if your money is safe and is it safe to give my personal information.

I opened my Trading 212 at the end of 2019 and used a Promo Code to get my first free share. I run a Youtube channel Financial Freedom And Education and decided I would try and help educate new investors in picking shares and building a stock portfolio. I created a video series showing all live stock purchases I made and the reasons I bought them. I also look at plenty shares in the video series that didn’t buy and give my reasons. You can therefore see all my successes and failures by watching the video series. Luckily I haven’t had any major shocks on my stock purchases but have missed out on a few large gains on stocks I didn’t buy. If you want to take a look here is the link to the playlist Click here to watch. 

If you want to see a snapshot of some of the stocks I own in the portfolio here is a quick screenshot of some of them:


I explain my reason for buying them in my video series but I was mainly looking for Companies that could survive through the recent Pandemic and also thrive going forward. I needed to make sure they had strong Balance Sheets, great management and products and services that will be in demand going forward. They needed to have competitive advantages over their competitors and be in sectors that had a good outlook. The Financials are quite easy to check on The Trading 212 App and I show you how and where to look in my Creating My Stock Portfolio series on Trading 212. Some of the companies like Amazon were obvious choices and my thoughts about how they would prosper this year have played out as expected. Some of the Stocks I chose were not so obvious and Xaar was one of these. If anything on the face of it I chose a stock that looked like it was in intensive care. Turnover was down, profit was down and the share price had dropped dramatically (Always be wary before buying a stock when the stock price has collapsed- there’s usually a reason and you need to know it before buying). I go in to a full analysis of this stock in my videos but in brief it had some valuable shareholding in another lucrative business, it had good cash on the Balance sheet. It most importantly had a whole new set of Directors and Management that had an excellent track record previously and were at the beginning stages of restructuring the Company and changing their business model. The recovery has been a lot quicker than I expected and the share price has risen dramatically giving me a positive gain of over 200% in under a year. My Trading 212 Portfolio has certainly performed well without this stock but with the boost Xaar gave it, was really the icing on the cake.

A couple of my stocks BP and Shell were bought with a different view. Both have been big dividend stocks historically and have strong Balance Sheets and good cash generative businesses. When I bought them their stock price was down in the dumps following the March crash and with countries around the world in various stages of lockdown they were suffering due to the collapse in oil prices. Although I believe they will provide a good long term play, they have suffered a bit longer than I expected due to the suppressed oil price, cutting of dividends and the negative sentiment towards the oil industry. Both companies are transitioning quickly towards greener energy and it will be interesting to see how they play out. I still feel oil will be a massive earner once the oil price fully recovers when world usage returns.
