Lightyear - an alternative to Interactive Brokers

Lightyear is an investment platform established in Estonia and the UK. Lightyear’s goal is to make investing easy, convenient and affordable for retail investors. When investing in foreign shares and ETFs, the usual choice is to use your home bank, but they usually have high transaction fees and account maintenance fees for holding shares.

Another popular option is to open an Interactive Brokers account. With them, opening an account is difficult, the user experience is poor, and transaction fees are significantly lower than in regular banks, but still exist. So, for a beginner investor who does not want to use leverage or trade options, Lightyear is a very reasonable choice.
