I don’t think I’m going to try be anything but objective here but man this has already rubbed me some kind of way and not the good kind
Literal trash product. Rivals Monzo Plus but adds even less value than that.
- They gatekeep stocks and collections from members who aren’t paying
- Instead of being treated the same as anyone else you have to bribe them to do what they were doing before (provide decent, speedy, customer service)
- Different order types that every other broker offers for free, that still result in a trade, which are free. The cost to perform them is the same. They are making you pay for no reason but “we can”.
- “Free” Stocks and Shares ISA (on a paid subscription? IMO FCA need to ban this kind of marketing)
They didn’t add any value in this at all, in my mind. They simply stripped features that should have been in there to begin with and put a price tag on them.
IMO better value would have been 5GBP a month and remove FX fees and remove the Apple/Google Pay top-up limit.
To put it in even clearer terms: if any of you pay for this I think you’re an idiot fuelling fanboy culture and allowing an objectively bad product to be brought to market
