2023 in review: Everything we delivered! 🎁

:wave: As we approach the end of the year, it feels like the perfect time to chat about all the updates and features we rolled out during 2023. It was a year filled with exciting new developments, greatly influenced by the feedback we received from the Community.

…and lots more tweaks and enhancements you might not see but will definitely feel.

We’re not stopping here! More exciting features are in the works to ensure an even better service going into 2024.

When investing your capital is at risk. ISA accounts are only available for clients registered through Trading 212 UK Ltd. 81% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Interesting to see the updates, it makes it much clearer to see this year’s improvements. It’s quite easy to lose perspective of the achievements in a given year :smiley: .

Guys, I can’t deny you exceeded my expectations this year. Some of the freatures like Multi-Currency accounts - I didn’t event dare to request because I thought it’s impossible.
But you know us - there’s always a few more things that I’d love to see.
(me personally - SIPP, iOS widget, portfolio transfers).

Happy holidays everyone! Keep it going! :rocket:

Multi currency accounts is a big win.

I was at the point of prefering IB as my main account, but multi currency on T212 put them back in the lead.

Very nice list of features guys ! well done ! much appreciated !

Must say that is impressive, the only thing i have an ick with is the limited shares were allowed to buy in particular stocks i would all those restrictions are lifted. Some stocks have a huge amount volume some days and it limits users to take advantage of a day where volume is 5x than normal.

The maximum trading quantities are subject to change. If there are specific instruments for which you’d like the limits raised, please let me know, and I’ll check if we can make it happen.

You can use this topic for such requests.

Thanks, its just on the days really when there is a spike in volume on some stocks that id want to get into but limited as to how much i can buy even though I know there is enough liquidity for that day. I dont have any specific in stock in mind right now though.

@KrisG @Team212

I know I’ve said this before and I sound like a broken record

BUT… I’d love to “see through” my ETF holdings.

I own so many that I’d love to actually see (even with a degree of error) approximately how much X Y and Z actually stock I own since so many ETFs overlap with so many others.

If I could see across 3 ETFs I actually own 20 shares of Tesla and 5 shares of Apple and so on and so on that would be game changing

InvestEngine do it to a point but don’t go that step farther and overlay the stock positions over my entire portfolio… killer feature… and would be the only platform (I know of) that would offer it

Super insightful, super useful, super unique

Do it.

Go on!

Please?

Yes, it would be a very interesting feature. It’s similar to a Morningstar tool, the “Instant X-Ray”.

A Morningstar integration could be a plus for T212.

Portfolio management tools are an area that most (or all) financial intermediaries lack. With description of all the:
→ Asset classes - In % and value
image

→ Geographic exposure (regions, countries) - In % and value

Currencies exposure (USD, EUR, GBP, etc) - In % and value

Industries/sectors (GICS) - In % and value
image

instruments types (types of: stocks, ETFs, ETCs, ETNs, debt) - In % and value
Stocks:

Debt:

Performance data (returns, volatility, sharpe/sortino/information ratios, tracking error, etc)
image
Examples in Performance - Returns

Examples in Risk and Rating

Graphs tools with comparison benchmarks (e.g. MSCI World Total Return (TR) in USD or EUR or GBP, S&P 500 TR in USD or EUR or GBP, Euro STOXX TR in USD or EUR or GBP, bonds indexes and mixed asset indexes TR in several currencies)

An overall Morningstar Portfolio example:

An dedicated dashboard in T212 desktop/web platform would be preferable, accessible in the T212 left panel:

Absolutely. I’ve used xray and it is pretty good.

My thinking was sectors, country exposure etc could/should be v2.0

v1.0 should/could just be stock exposure.

I’d just like an easier way for me to know my exposure … currently I kinda make it up in my head based off some Top 10 data I can see

Come on @Team212 @Bogi.H this would be a killer feature!!!

@KrisG Awesome, thanks for all your hard work!

Can’t wait to see what the Trading 212 team bring to 2024.

The only one I’ve used is cash interest but the list is impressive nonetheless

Agreed, love 212 to bits.

But I have to say the maximum quantities thing doesn’t sit right with me.

Of course I still love 212 and use my 212 ACC every week, but despite the all explanations, I can’t say it sits well with me.
