The founders of nextmarkets have this to say: 

“We are very pleased about the great interest and trust of both new and existing investors. The growth potential is huge, and we are only at the beginning of a whole new era in which the stock market becomes fully democratized. With our unique coaching approach, we ensure that private investors not only trade fully commission-free, but above all become significantly more successful,” says CEO and co-founder Manuel Heyden. His brother Dominic Heyden, co-founder and CTO continues, “We are particularly proud of the fact that we have in record time built an online broker active in 10 European markets, built top-to-bottom on our own technology and with a comprehensive regulatory framework.”

Lead investor Christian Angermayer, who has invested via his stock-market-listed Cryptology Asset Group, adds: “We are just at the very beginning of a new retail boom on stock markets. However, the crisis of confidence towards other neobrokers, in connection with the Gamestop phenomenon, has shown how important it is to choose the right partner. nextmarkets is 100% transparent, stands completely on its own two feet including its own banking license, and offers true zero-commission trading in stocks, with no hidden fees and a very broad investment offering. Investors can also trade Bitcoin easily and conveniently with nextmarkets, of course.”
