Ratings and Reviews
Convenient on the surface, but....
I could understand how it would take 7 business days to transfer money from an investment account, but a cash account should not take that long. As for my investment account, it’s been 7 days and I am still waiting. I thought this would be a great way to set money aside and grow it for our wedding next year, among other shorter-term goals, but it’s proving to just be too many extra steps. This app is perfect if you are going to set it and forget it and not touch it for X amount of years, but if you are looking for something to set aside for short-term goals, this app is just a little inconvenient. Also, keep in mind that this....bank/whatever it is, is not FDIC insured (not even for cash accounts). Investments are always a risk, but ask yourself if you are willing to risk cash that you could set aside in your home bank’s savings account. Just some things to consider.
New paid features made it even worse
I recently opted in in Fast money to avoid fees from WiseBanyan and to have my money deposited into the account immediately. I was told that my instant deposit from last Friday would not be same day but would occur this past Monday. Fine. Funds were available. Then I come to see that not only did it take a 5 business days for the transfer to happen— even longer than before, I now was being changed $90 in fees. I had made this same transfers before, which somehow failed with WiseBanyan and had been charged $30. Now after signing up to pay them monthly so that money is pulled from my account the day I make the transfer so I avoid fees, it not only takes longer to make the transfer, but you get 3 times the fees. Customer service just justifies their terrible business practices. This is a garbage service that does the opposite of invest your money.
Sad to see the only free robo-investment app die
I signed up for WiseBanyan because it was unique for not charging ANY fees for lower-income investors such as myself. You could opt in to more features, but it was the only free way to do micro-investing with MPT. Now they decided to require one of their previously opt-in features, and appear to be trying to make their app more like the other ones out there. It was unique and the best, and they’re de-incentivizing consumers to choose their product. Otherwise a great great app
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
