InvestEngine Review – “E”very “T”rade “F”ree Investing

Home > Reviews > InvestEngine Review

I’ve never had any doubts about InvestEngine as an investment account, but in the past, I’ve always been a little worried about new “free” or very low-cost investing accounts. In particular, because investing is a very complex business and the last thing you need to worry about is your investment platform going bust.

But, InvestEngine is doing great business at the moment. I recently saw Andrew Prosser (who incidentally collected InvestEngine’s award for Best ETF investing Platform in 2023) at the London Trader Show talk about their growth. And the good news is that they now look after more client money than ever and around 35% of that is in InvestEngine’s managed ETF account. This means that as well as you are able to make money by investing in ETFs through their free account.

InvestEngine Review

Name: InvestEngine

Description: InvestEngine is a low cost ETF investment platform that lets you buy around 600 exchange traded funds with zero commission. They also have a managed ETF investment service, for those that want help with what to invest in.

Is InvestEngine any good?

Yes, InvestEngine is a good way to buy ETFs. InvestEngine makes it really simple to get started by investing in ETFs with zero commission, although the market range is a bit limited if you are looking for more complex asset classes. Plus, they also have a managed service for those that want an expert to build a diverse portfolio of ETFs for them.

Ratings Explained:

  • Pricing: Top marks as it is actually free to buy and hold ETFs in a GIA and ISA (although keep in mind you have to pay ETF charges to the exchange). Plus, the SIPP and managed accounts are very low cost too.
  • Market Access: InvestEngine only offer about 600 ETFs on their platform so are marked down a bit here. However, they do offer enough to build a diverse portfolio of exchange-traded funds.
  • Platform & App: Both are well built and easy to use, intuitive and cross-device.
  • Customer Service:  Easy to contact through chat (even on weekends) plus an active community board. No published phone number on the site though.
  • Research & Analysis: A bit on the blog, but they are more insights, with a fairly active social channel (mainly investing tips or product highlights).
