Passfolio - A Global Investing Revolution

Passfolio’s goal is to be different from traditional financial services companies: we’re fighting an outdated, expensive system.

We let you invest in over 3000 stocks, ETFs, and REITs from the US market, no matter where you’re from or how rich you are. In fact, we’re available in 170+ countries around the globe

The idea for Passfolio came when founder David Gobaud was travelling the world in 2018 for a previous project and noticed how much demand there is for better investment opportunities. In most countries, investments are still an expensive privilege of few. 

Passfolio changes all that by providing fast, easy, and secure access to the US market. Passfolio charges no commission fees¹, supports fractional share trading², and even lets you fund your Passfolio Securities account with local transfer methods such as TEDs and deposit crypto³ through Passfolio Financial


Commission-free investing 

Commission-free US stock trading was popularized by Robinhood a few years ago and is now common in the US with some of the biggest broker dealers such as E*TRADE and Charles Schwab offering it to US citizens.

Passfolio’s mission is to democratize investment opportunities so we believe charging high trading fees is unfair and unjust. If US citizens are able to invest commission free why can’t you? 

Passfolio’s revenue currently comes from 3 major sources instead of commission fees: 

  • Interest on the uninvested cash in user accounts through a sweep account.
  • Foreign exchange fees through some of our deposit methods.
  • Premium subscription features that are launching soon - stay tuned!
