Wealthsimple recently launched in the UK after a few years running in Canada and the US. As with many other robo-advisers, you answer a few questions and get a portfolio that's suitable. You therefore don't get to pick your own individual funds or shares. Wealthsimple is also offering socially responsible investing, with three portfolios which invest into companies that ‘further socially responsible initiatives’.
It will suit less confident investors and those that want someone else to manage their money.
Fees start off at 0.7% for Wealthsimple, plus around 0.2% for the underlying investments they use. Those with more than £100,000 invested pay 0.5% and get access to investment planning and airline lounges.
