NatWest

NatWest

Still reserved for NatWest customers only

Offers one of 5 investment funds to customers. Still a little bit sparse and not wildly exciting. But will get you invested and be visible alongside online banking.

Holly's View

Holly has accounts with all the providers on our website and independently reviews all of them.

Low-cost, no frills investing. Their LifeStrategy funds offer readymade investment solutions and with over 30 million mostly happy customers globally this feels like a safe option for most. Suitable for beginners and passive investing enthusiasts. That said, the website and associated information is sparse, and it needs work. Beginners you will have to persevere with which LIfeStrategy option (there are 5) to plump for. But these guys are solid and, let’s say it again – LOW COST! A good option for beginners or conversely those who have tried to be a Guru and now lack the energy to continue, or the belief that they can do better.

Overall Summary

What to Expect

Feels like a solid option for NatWest customers who would value a ready-made investment fund managed for you. Cyber security will be strong. Limited but relatively simple.

The 'Geeky' Details

Provider details

NatWest Invest is currently only open to existing NatWest banking customers. There are only five funds from which to choose. You don't get to pick your own individual shares and funds.

The investments are run by another part of the bank – private bank Coutts & Co. It’s convenient for NatWest current account holders who want to dip a toe into investment waters and see it in the same place as online banking.

Total costs are about 0.7%, including the platform and the investments, so around £7 per year in fees on a £1,000 investment.

We don't have an account with NatWest Invest, so haven't yet been able to give them a Boring Money 'We Say' score.
