Revolut, a London-based fintech company, backed by some of Europe’s most well-known investors have launched commission-free stock trading. Revolut Metal customers can now make up to 100 commission-free trades per month in over 300 U.S. listed stocks on the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ.
Revolut’s commission-free stock trading is supported by real-time price and performance data. Trading will only be available during the hours of 9:30am – 16:00pm EST, as Revolut are currently only offering U.S stocks.

The new commission-free stock trading feature will only be available for Revolut’s metal card customers at this initial stage and will eventually reach all of its customers (Standard and Premium customers) in a roll-out process over the next few weeks.
Revolut’s fee structure will be as follows:
- Premium customers will be able to make eight free trades per month. Any trades thereafter will be charged at £1 (R16ZAR) per trade.
- Standard customers will be able to make three free trades per month. Any trades thereafter will be charged at £1 (R16ZAR) per trade.
- Both of Revolut’s plans will be subject to the same 0.01 percent annual custody fee that applies to Metal customers.
