Shares referral programme and social features

New social features on Shares

This week, we've stepped up the social game at Shares. We haven't gone axe throwing or learned how to make the right daiquiri. Rather, we've introduced some new functionality on the app that will bring you even closer to your investment mates.

Here’s a rundown of the good stuff:

£20 referral

Invite your mate to Shares and you’ll both get £20 to invest!

How does it work?

1. Your friend signs up to Shares by using your referral link (make sure they open the link using their phone!)

2. Your friend tops up their account by linking their bank account (they need to top up at least £1).

3. Cha ching! You both earn £20. Every invited friend will always get a free share worth £20.

Just open your Shares app (available on the App Store and Play Store), make sure you’ve added £1 and you’ll see your own link. You’re now ready to start sharing!

T&Cs apply.

Schedule orders

It can be a drag waiting for the US market to open. Well, not any more. Place an order whenever it suits you.

Statements & trade confirmations

Keep eyes on all your investments through the app with ease.

New stock drops

Get your investing chops stuck into a juicy new selection of stocks, from Manchester United to Peloton and Beyond Meat.

Slicker search

Get inside the minds of your mates with just a few taps:

  • See which stocks are they're interested in

  • Check what’s poppin' across various sectors

  • Find people you may know (just head to your profile and tap the “add friend” icon in the top right)
