With ‘Easy Investments’, bunq users can put their money to work and earn more effortlessly, all while helping to build a greener planet.
Bunq, the Dutch fintech which has recently been valued at €1.6 billion, has launched ‘Easy Investments’ as part of the latest upgrade to its app, bunq Update 19.
The European neobank was established to provide a simple and sustainable way to invest money and the new feature does just that and more: it gives users the opportunity to invest in environmentally friendly companies and those working to achieve sustainable development.
This ESG investing tool was deployed in partnership with birdee and allows bunq users to choose from three diversified portfolios, thus removing the hassle of managing individual stocks and shares while still earning.
As retail investing in Europe booms, with levels estimated to have doubled since 2020, bunq feels the timing is right to add the investing feature.
Ali Niknam, founder and Chief Executive Officer at bunq, said: “This is a really exciting development for bunq. With ‘Easy Investments’, bunq users can put their money to work and earn more effortlessly, all while helping to build a greener planet.”
bunq’s Update 19 includes other features such as the addition of 10 more foreign currencies to the bunq app. Now, users can receive, hold, convert, and spend in 15 different currencies directly from their phone.
