Public, Multi-Asset Investment Platform, FinTech, ETFs, Treasuries, Alternative Assets, Portfolio, Data, Analysis, UKPublic, the US-based multi-asset investing platform, has launched in the United Kingdom, entering its first market outside the United States. With the firm’s UK expansion, Public aims to be the preeminent place to invest in US-listed equities, offering over 5,000 stocks, deep data and insights, and a simple and transparent fee structure with zero commission trading and low FX fees.

UK members can build a portfolio on the Public app with over 5,000 US-listed equities and access features that provide additional data and context, such as custom company metrics, Morningstar research, earnings call recordings, and insights from a community of millions of investors, all in one place.

Starting this week, members can access the app on a rolling basis on both iOS and Android devices.

London and the broader UK market has always been the financial epicenter of Europe, so it’s a natural place for Public to start our international expansion,” said Leif Abraham, co-CEO and co-founder of Public. “Public has always had European roots: my co-founder and I are both European, and we have a team across multiple European countries, including the UK. We’re excited that now it won’t just be the team in Europe and the UK, but the members we serve.”

“Our first goal with launching Public in the UK is to be the best place to invest in US stocks,” said Dann Bibas, GM of International at Public. “With over 5,000 US-listed stocks, competitive FX fees, commission-free trading during US market hours, and comprehensive data on all listed stocks, we aim to be the best place for UK investors who want to explore the US markets.”

Public has raised over $300 million in venture capital funding. Investors include Accel, Greycroft, Lakestar, Maria Sharapova, and JJ Watt, the NFL star and new owner of Burnley FC. The company has team members in New YorkCopenhagenLondon, and Amsterdam.

Currently, the US product offers additional asset classes, such as ETFs, Treasuries, crypto, and alternatives, which may be available in future releases in the UK. Public aims to launch Investment Plans in the UK, a tool that allows members to create customized recurring investments.
