Most of our clients are still at the beginning of their financial life. As a full-fledged bank, we will be able to support them for decades to come. Together with our clients, we are trying to build one of the leading financial institutions in Europe, explained Christian Hecker, co-founder of Trade Republic.

Obtaining this license should allow them to accelerate the deployment of solutions expected by savers in France. Coupled with a strong approach to financial education, these new products and services will support us in our mission to support savers in taking control of their personal finances, added Vincent Grard, Country Manager for France.
