The online investment platform was launched by Investec Wealth & Investment 18 months ago and is part of the wider Investec group, has more than £32.5bn of client funds under management.   

A key differentiator of the proposition is that it overs actively managed investment strategies,, selecting from over 300 actively managed funds, and has been remarkably popular among female investors, who make up about 40 per cent of its investors.

“We also want more people to access active investment expertise, whether that’s through opening up a Stocks and Shares ISA or from a General Investment Account,” she said.

 “The online investment industry is still relatively young, and at Click & Invest we are continually monitoring for and developing ways of enabling people to discover the benefits of investing. We are pleased to announce a new minimum investment threshold.”
