Readers, contain your excitement as we welcome you to the digital red carpet of the glamorous UK investment and pension scene. This time, we present to you the winners of the Best for New Investment Platform 2022.
We were looking for new providers which bring something different to the market, and help more people to manage their investments and/or pension in a better way. Accessibility, fair charges, ease of use and innovation were key factors in deciding this award.
These independent awards are compiled using customer reviews (30% of the score), Boring Money’s rigorous behind the scenes testing using our live accounts, charges (25% of the score) and customer service including call centres and support. These awards take our research team of 6 analysts over 2 months to research and collate, and recognise all round excellence. In our opinion – and their customers’ opinion - they are the best new investment platforms in the UK today for those investing without an adviser.

More information about the awards
Why did we come up with these awards and the Best New Investment Platform category?
There has been a lot of change in the financial sector in recent years. Robo advice has taken off, new apps are being released all the time, and digital advice is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to the traditional face-to-face format. But how do you know who's the best new kid in town? How can you compare providers, understand what's right for you, and make an informed choice before you part with your cash? Well, the Boring Money Best New Investment Platform award honours those newbies who have taken the market by storm and put the old dogs to shame. The winners of this year's award have demonstrated consistently good value, transparent pricing, great website experiences, excellent customer service, and brand-spanking technology.
And how does this information help me as an investor?
We didn't just come up with these Best Buys to brag about how amazing all these new investment platforms are. No - these awards exist to help you - the customer - make better financial decisions for yourself and your loved ones. Whether you're looking for a simple investment platform to manage your Junior ISAs, or a ready-made portfolio that you can set up in minutes, we've done all that nitty gritty research and fiddly analysis so you don't have to. And if you fancy comparing our full suite of ISAs and pensions, do look out for those brands with the Best Buy logos next to their name. We don't just dish these out to anyone. Providers have to earn them - and that means doing one heck of a lot more than saying 'your call is important to us'.
