It’s never too early to start investing. If you want to get started in investing some money, don’t have any (big) savings though and don’t know where to start Moneybox might be the app for you. You can set a weekly budget to automatically save i.e. £5 which the app will then invest on your behalf. Additionally, you can activate a feature called “Round ups” which will automatically round up your purchases to the next Pound. For example you make a purchase for your weekly grocery shop at Aldi for £25.56, the app will then automatically round up the £0.56 to the next pound and take the £0.44 and invests it into your Moneybox account. The app will therefore help you save and invest money painfree and effortlessly. Moneybox does charge a management fee so please check their T&Cs.
