With investment, your capital is at risk.

Tell us about yourself. We do the rest.

You don’t have to be a stock market expert to have an investment portfolio.

You just have to know your financial situation, risk tolerance and how much you want to invest. We do the rest.

At Nutmeg you can start with as little as £500 per pot

—plus a minimum monthly contribution of £100 for portfolios below £5,000 — and set up as many pots as you like. Whether it's investing for your children's future or saving for a new home, each pot can have its own timeframe and risk level.

Investing requires a long-term outlook and puts your capital at risk. There will be ups and downs and past performance does not guarantee future returns.

At Nutmeg we spread out your investment so you don’t have all your eggs in one basket. This is known as diversification. Your money is invested in various asset classes, geographies and industry sectors. It spreads the risk on your investments while at the same time improving your chances of having money invested in markets with higher returns.

We do all the hard work by constantly monitoring and re-balancing your portfolio to make sure it stays in line with your goals. Learn more about how we invest
