Millennials in the UK are set to inherit £327bn in the next 10 years and yet, despite the recent proliferation of FinTech, almost half of them consider their long-term financial future to be their primary stress driver.

That’s why we founded Wombat; to break down the traditional barriers of investing and empower people to take control of their financial future.

Through our app, users can choose to back the brands they believe in by investing in curated themed funds, or directly into global companies. Commission-free, fractional investing means they can get started from just £10 and our automated investment and roundup features make investing completely effortless.

We charge one of the lowest AUM fees in the market, from our beginner Standard plan to our Instant investing plan, and give investors 0.2% cashback on every investment they make.

Since our launch, we’ve grown to 230,000 users with 15% MoM growth on average. We’ve built a product that our users love, with 22% organic downloads and hundreds of 5 star ratings on TrustPilot and the app stores. We’ve also built a team and advisory board jam-packed with experience from the likes of Deliveroo, Revolut, Etoro and Hargreaves Lansdown.

We’re now raising investment to accelerate our growth and begin to execute our product roadmap, we are planning the launch of our crypto and pension products later this year.

As with any investment, investing in Wombat Invest carries a level of risk. Overall, based on the key risks highlighted below, the degree of risk associated with an investment in Wombat Invest is higher than in a company that's trading on a public market.

Early-stage investmentEdit

Wombat Invest is at one of the earliest stages of the business lifecycle, and the failure rate of companies at that stage is usually much higher than those at a later stage.

Illiquid investmentEdit

The number of transactions in shares of private companies is usually significantly lower than in public companies, typically resulting in it taking longer to sell shares in private companies at a price that is at least equal to the price that the shares were bought at. Accordingly, the Wombat Invest investment opportunity is considered to be higher risk than more liquid companies.
