Santander Digital Adviser Review

as of 09/03/2021 at 10:57 am

Holly's View

The digital advice journey will appeal to those who don’t feel confident about investing. The process is long, but there are some nice ‘gamified’ things to test attitudes to risk. Once this is completed, the online reporting and information is underwhelming.

The 'Geeky' Details

Provider details

Santander Digital Adviser is the bank's new service and is regulated financial advice delivered online for a £20 advice fee. 

Lots of questions test how you feel about risk and how you want your investments to behave. There's a strong behavioural finance slant. 

At the end of the questionnaire you can buy a suitability report for £20 which will tell you how to invest and start.

This option will lead to a range of Santander 'multi-asset funds' and will not suit those looking for broader fund choice or the ability to trade shares. The older Investment Hub offers access to third-party funds although it's not the best option on the market if you're after full choice.

Costs are £20 for the advice, the platform or administration fee costs 0.35% a year and then the underlying funds cost from 0.34% a year to 0.49% a year, depending on the mix of assets contained. Expect to pay about 0.8% a year all-in plus the initial outlay of £20 for the suitability report.
