    Festive Robo Cashback - Now Closed

    Festive Robo Cashback - Now Closed 28th Nov 17 at 7:49 PM
    Looks like the Robos are struggling to give away enough money to new customers so have offered existing customers further incentives to add more assets under management.

    Nutmeg are offering existing customers £100 cashback for every £10k of ISA or SIPP transfer up to a maximum of £1000 cashback. 12 months commitment. They no longer do the cashback sites for new customers but have a £25 introduce a friend (who gets 3 months with no charges) offer. By my maths Nutmeg fixed allocation is 0.25% more expensive than VLS on Vanguard Investor so the benefit on £10k over 12 months is £75.

    Moneyfarm are offering existing customers a £50 John Lewis voucher if they deposit a lump sum or transfer an ISA of £5k or more for 3 months. This could be good if you are a historic customer and would still be within the fee-free £12k allowance. Moneyfarm continue to offer extremely attractive TopCashBack to new customers but you now have to pay management fees on the whole balance.

    All the normal caveats that you might not get back what you invest plus some of the Robos are not viable businesses without regular cash injections but you still get FSCS protection up to £50k.

    Good grief. Well, I suppose when you are haemorrhaging money already, why not throw the whole lot in.

    A few months ago I transferred my current year ISA from Nutmeg to Vanguard and now I am moving it back for a year to get £100 from this offer. Our total Nutmeg cashback will be around £500. They didn't take back the initial cashback when I moved the ISA early as I remained a customer with the LISA.

    Not sure I will bother with the Moneyfarm offer. We have had over £400 cashback from them so far. The voucher is limited to John Lewis online. If it was a reusable card that could also be used at Waitrose then my wife likes to make a few small purchases each visit and get the free coffee...

    Nutmeg has been growing steadily. 18 months ago you criticised its £100k revenues, which now stand at £2.5m pa. It!!!8217;s doubled it!!!8217;s AUM and number of customers in 12 months. Yes, it!!!8217;s burning money, but that!!!8217;s what such companies need to do to grow. It might need £5-10m AUM to scrape even, but it would never get there without taking loss on the way. So a £100 bonus: that seems to be giving away about 16 months fee for free, which doesn!!!8217;t seem an obscene acquisition cost in a sticky market. Now I!!!8217;m not an investor in nutmeg and wouldn!!!8217;t use them personally, but it strikes me you don!!!8217;t understand what is now a well proven path for growing a modern digital business. Sure, it may crash and burn, that!!!8217;s what your 59 nutmeg posts seem to prognosticate. But I!!!8217;ll take some pleasure quoting back your posts in another 2 years if it doesn!!!8217;t.

    Just to close the loop on this thread Nutmeg just paid the £100 bonus but it probably cost me about that from being out the market for about 10 days and the future fees difference so this offer ended up being neutral. I will only keep it there a year then move it again. I still have a small GIA with Vanguard to keep the account open.

    I didn't bother with the £50 Moneyfarm offer but it would have probably worked out better as I would have been investing new money.

    Nevermind can't win them all, but I keep trying...
