Firstrade finally goes live with fractional shares

Rick Steves

“It’s a testament to our dedication to breaking down barriers in the investment world, making it easier and more affordable for individuals to participate in the financial markets.”

Firstrade has finally gone live with its Fractional Share Trading service. Initially planned for launch in January, this innovative offering allows investors to trade fractional shares of over 4,000 stocks and ETFs, starting with as little as $5 per stock or ETF.

With fractional shares, the pioneer in commission-free online trading wants to further democratize access to the stock market, enabling broader investment in high-priced stocks with minimal capital.

“Breaking down barriers in the investment world”

Don Montanaro, President of Firstrade, said: “The launch of Fractional Share Trading is more than just an expansion of our services. It’s a testament to our dedication to breaking down barriers in the investment world, making it easier and more affordable for individuals to participate in the financial markets.”

The service boasts features like flexible trading options for US stocks and ETFs, allowing clients to tailor their investment strategies with amounts starting from $5, and the opportunity to diversify portfolios by trading fractional shares of a wide selection of US stocks and ETFs.

Additionally, it includes the option for dividends from fractional shares to be automatically reinvested through the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP).

Firstrade has integrated the Fractional Share Trading feature across its web and mobile platforms, ensuring a user-friendly experience for its clients. For more information, interested individuals are encouraged to visit Firstrade’s website.
