All investing should be regarded as longer term. The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.
Make investing part of your everyday life
• Round up your everyday card purchases to the nearest pound and invest the spare change e.g. when you buy a coffee for £2.40, you can choose to ‘round up’ to £3 and set aside the 60p to invest.
• You can also set up regular weekly deposit, a monthly payday boost and make one-off deposits into your Moneybox.
Investing made easy
• Investing can be a great way to grow your money, and can offer higher returns in the long term than current or savings accounts. However, this is not guaranteed.
• We've worked with experts to put together three simple starting options – cautious, balanced and adventurous. All you need to do is pick one!
• The option you choose determines how your investments are split between three tracker funds – a cash fund, a global shares fund and a property shares fund. Via these funds, you can invest into thousands of leading companies from around the world including Apple, Facebook, Netflix and Disney.
• Your investments are held within a Lifetime ISA, Stocks & Shares ISA or General Investment Account (GIA).
Please note a 25% government early withdrawal charge may apply to the Lifetime ISA. Stay informed and up to date • In the Discover tab, you’ll find analysis of your savings, featured stories and even a Time Machine to help you journey into the future…

Ratings and Reviews
I have been using this App for about 18 months and I’ve saved about £2000 so far. I chose the high risk strategy and sometimes my investment drops below what I have put in, but the amounts aren’t significant and I’m currently a few pounds ahead. The big advantage for me is the ability to save without even noticing. I have not noticed the round-up sums unless I look for them, and I certainly have not missed them. I love the projections of how my money will build up - it’s very motivational! No you cannot immediately transfer your money back to yourself but for me, that’s a plus. I have an ISA with my back which allows me to get instant cash and it’s too tempting, it certainly doesn’t grow like this one. My husband saved a few hundred very quickly and withdrew it without any problems - you just need to wait a few days. I find it reassuring to have this little nest egg quietly growing with zero effort on my part. Brilliant!

HI Claire, thanks for the in-depth review and kind words! We're so happy you're enjoying investing with us. If you have any questions or suggestions for the team you can reach us via the in-app chat or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Great UI, transparent and clear
A very friendly approach to investment, making it very easy to start saving and building a folio.
It is all made very clear in the app, from set up to managing your regular contributions.
The people who manage the app make sure to keep you informed through announcements and messages to help you understand the volatility of the market and how it may affect your investment, as well as providing sound advice.
My only suggestion to the development team would be to display a more meaningful graph than the current one in the “investment” tab. Seeing how much money you’ve put in over time is not as interesting as knowing how well it’s been doing.
If you add a second line on the graph to illustrate the growth of the investment compared to your contributions over time, I think it would make better use of visual data.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review the app in such detail! We're constantly looking to improve the app so all user feedback is invaluable :)
We're definitely with you on the Investments tab and agree there could be some improvements. As luck would have it, it's top of our list for the coming months and we'll be slowly adding in more and more detail to the tab itself. Feel free to get in touch with the in-app chat team in Settings>Help with any further feedback!
Thanks again and happy investing!
The interface is nice, debiting is a pain
I like the app itself and it certainly is a good way of saving. I had no issue with the investing side as I felt they really explain how it might vary and go up and down etc.
However I have decided to withdraw now for two reasons. Firstly it kept dropping the connection to my bank account which was a pain. Secondly the debiting took far too long and it was really easy to get confused as a result. I think this could work well for someone who is pretty laid back with their money, as they wouldn’t be keeping such a close eye on their account, but I budget very carefully and so found it annoying keeping up with when the money would actually come out of my bank account. When you compare this to something like the immediacy you have in Monzo for example, it seems painfully slow. I appreciate that the actual investing would take a while but not the debiting. Not for me as it is now I’m afraid.

Thanks for the review! Our collections are done by Direct Debit on Wednesdays at midday, so we're limited by the Direct Debit timings. Hopefully in the future we will be able to speed up the collection process!
