CushonMe is our free investment risk and performance monitoring service. Its powerful algorithms will check up on your investment every single day and send you an email if any of its alerts are triggered.
It’s completely free to you (we pay for it out of the flat 0.91 % pa charge for investing with us) and you can read more about CushonMe here. But if you'd prefer not to have CushonMe you can choose to opt out when you set up your account.
The daily review covers five key things:
whether other investments in our comparison tables have significantly better projected returns
the recent performance of your investment
whether your investment is on track to meet the targets you've specified
Risk / return:
whether the risk/return profile of your investment has changed because:
whether other investments in our comparison tables have significantly lower charges
One thing CushonMe won’t do is send you junk email. There are thresholds on each item to make sure we only alert you if it's really worth it.
CushonMe uses the same techniques as big financial services companies use to manage their own money, but it does not provide advice and you still make all your own decisions on what to do. We use sophisticated actuarial technology and we're the only people making this sort of powerful service available directly to consumers.

We make no initial charge on any of our investments. However, funds do incur dealing costs which they may pass on to you (at cost). Often these are free because funds get big economies of scale and can net trades off against each other, but if they do apply they are typically between 0% and 2% as a one-off cost.
The fund managers' charges apply on a fund-by-fund basis. The total shown is based on the initial proportion invested in each fund.
