What is Barclays Plan and Invest?
This is a curious animal - one might call it a crossbreed - that is to say that it uses a combination of robo advice, ie, algorithms and human investment management. It is only available for Barclays customers and requires a minimum investment of £5000 but this does not have to be paid in all at once
Our review of Barclays Plan and Invest
Barclays Plan and Invest is a solid tool but not an especially innovative one. On the plus side the website looks good and there is lots of information on its FAQs.
