What is Circa5000?

This is the robo-investor formerly known as Tickr, with big ambitions: it wants to change the world by the year … 5000, so it’s not any time soon. But the length of the timespan serves to emphasise that investing is a long term project!

Investors can open an ISA, JISA, pension or general investment account with a minimum investment of just £5.
