BUX Zero Review

Bux Zero, launched in 2019, caters to Europeans seeking a straightforward investment platform. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it attracted young investors with its clutter-free, mobile-only approach. It’s ideal for those preferring a minimalist app with diverse financial products.

Bux Zero, an investment service, facilitates client orders, acting as an intermediary in stock and ETF transactions. Users consent to share lending through the BUX app, enabling lower costs and commissions. However, this involves minor risks detailed in the “Client Agreement”. Collateral equal to the value of lent instruments is maintained for security.

Client funds are protected under two schemes: the Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGS) ensures up to €100,000 in case of ABN AMRO Clearing Bank N.V.’s bankruptcy, and the Investor Compensation Scheme (ICS) covers up to €20,000 of your investments if BUX B.V. faces insolvency.
