Moneybox Review

Holly's view

A lovely app for the newcomers to investing who have little to no interest in how their money is actually put to work behind the scenes. This service is mobile-first, super engaging, actually very clever in terms of presentation and content, but built on just three very basic and vanilla investment options.

The 'Geeky' Details

Provider details

There are three core investment choices in Moneybox: the Cautious fund; the Balanced fund and the Adventurous fund.

Costs are an average of 0.68% a year plus a £1 a month subscription fee. The 0.68% is made up of 0.45% for the platform administration and an average of 0.23% for the funds – the cash option will be cheaper than the Adventurous option as shares cost a bit more to manage.

Your Questions

"I've got a Stock and Shares ISA with Moneybox. I recently invested a £5000 lump sum with them, and I'm making regular weekly investments of £75. When I invested the £5000, the share price was quite high based on the performance of the fund. I'm just wondering whether I made a mistake investing the lump sum in one go, and whether I should have drip fed it into the account in the same way as my weekly deposits? If so, should I withdraw and start to drip feed it back in?"
