Bitpanda does not offer any investment advice, but we will provide you with additional documents that may help you with making the right decision.
Before you start
Before you start investing, it is important that you fully understand the product you want to invest in. We offer a variety of stocks and ETFs (made possible through derivatives, more on that can be found here) on our platform. You can invest in companies from different geographical areas, industries, business models and historical performance.
Bitpanda provides you with several documents that may help you to understand the offered products better:
The prospectus contains essential information about the financial instruments (in this case the derivatives) and their issuers. It contains, among other things, a detailed description of the product, the fees and cost structures, as well as a detailed description of the associated risks.
You can find the prospectus here.
The derivative contract contains the terms under which you can invest in stocks and ETFs. You can find the conditions for withdrawal and your rights regarding the dividend payout there for example.
You can find the derivative contract here.
The PRIIPs KID (“Packaged Retails and Insurance-based Investment Products- Key Information Document”) is a basic information sheet available for every stock and ETF. This document will help you better understand the nature, risks and potential gains and losses of a security. It’s designed to enable comparisons between different securities and thereby facilitate the selection process.
You can find the respective PRIIPs KID on every stock or ETF detail page.
Customer information document regarding investment decisions
The customer information document contains basic information about the communication between Bitpanda Financial Services and our customers, information regarding the general risks of investing and our policy on dealing with conflicts of interests.
You can find the customer information document regarding investment decisions here.
Securities Price Information Service Providers

We recommend that you read through all the relevant documents before making an investment decision. These documents will give you a better understanding of the associated risks and help you choose the right asset for your individual investment goals.
Keep in mind
Bitpanda Stocks enables you to make fractional investments. To allow for this, Bitpanda issues a derivative contract which is backed by the underlying stock or ETF. You can read more about this here.
