Avanza Bank: Swedish savers offered record-cheap trading with American stocks

Press release 2014-03-28, 08.15

The interest among Avanza's customers for American stocks has
increased by more than 50 percent in the last year. Avanza's
customers now have over SEK 2.1 bln invested in American stocks. The
most popular shares are Apple, Google and Coca-Cola.

With today's price reduction Avanza continues to put pressure on
transaction fees and offers the lowest fees in Sweden on trading
American stocks, which can be traded through Avanza's online
platform.

"Our ambition is to continue putting pressure on transaction fees for
the benefit of Swedish savers. The interest for American stocks is
increasing and with higher volumes, we can continue to lower
transaction fees. For the growing number of savers interested in
trading in American stocks there is a lot of money to be saved by
doing it through us rather than the larger banks", says Martin
Tivéus, Managing Director of Avanza.
