Why invest with Wealthify?
Think investing’s right for you, but not sure where to start? Wealthify could be the answer.
- Affordable investments
Start with a lump sum or whatever you can afford – starting from £1. Add regular monthly payments or simply top up your plan whenever you like.
- Easy access
Your cash isn’t locked away. You can withdraw your money – or add to it – without penalty.
- You’re in control
Wealthify helps you choose what investment style suits you best, from cautious to adventurous. You can choose to invest ethically if you want. And you can open more than one investment account – each with different plans for different personal finance goals.
- Managed for you
Your money is looked after by Wealthify’s investment managers who monitor your plan and decide where to invest your money. So you don’t need to be an expert to get started.
You’ll be in the hands of an award-winning team. Wealthify have won three awards in 2019 so far: Moneyfacts Highly Commended Award, Defaqto’s 5-Star Rating and Boring Money’s Best Buy for investing.
What will you pay?
Ok so, Wealthify charges an annual fee for managing your money. It’s never more than 0.7% and can be as low as 0.4%, depending on the total value of all investment plans you have.
You also pay a yearly fee for the funds that your plan is invested in which is typically:
- 0.19% to 0.26% a year for original investments
- 0.42% to 0.82% a year for ethical investments
Fees for ethical portfolios tend to be slightly higher because they’re actively managed to maintain ethical standards.
Transaction costs - incurred through the investing process - also apply. These are 0.07% on average.

Don’t just take our word for it. Industry experts have awarded Wealthify with three awards this year already.

Defaqto gave Wealthify a 5-Star Rating for their original and ethical plans - the first digital wealth manager ever to receive this award.
Consumer champion website, Boring Money, rates Wealthify a Best Buy for investing.
Before you apply
A few things you need to know before you can open an account.
To open an ISA you need to:
- Be over 18
- Be a UK tax resident
- Be within your £20,000 per year ISA allowance
- Not have opened or be contributing to a stocks and shares ISA, other than a lifetime ISA, this tax year (from 6 April to 5 April)
If you're transfering an ISA, bear in mind:
- It doesn’t count towards your ISA allowance, unless you paid into an ISA this tax year
- You can transfer an ISA you’ve paid into this tax year, but you have to transfer the whole amount and it will count towards this year’s ISA allowance
- You might be charged by your current provider, so check before you do anything
- It can take between 3 to 6 weeks to cash in, transfer and reinvest your money – your investment won’t be affected by any changes in the markets during this time
