LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Introducing a completely new approach to investing, InvestYourWay is an
online investment manager building bespoke solutions for individuals.
Whether the client would like to invest in Europe or Asia, gold or
platinum, InvestYourWay constructs a completely tailored fund for them
in real time.
Every InvestYourWay Fund remains completely configurable throughout its
lifetime. In order to achieve this, InvestYourWay uses a bespoke set of
Contracts For Difference (CFDs) produced by IG, which do not use
leverage, have no funding charges and trade at much smaller sizes (0.01
contract). Unlike Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), CFDs do not incur any
additional management charge, which allows the service to be made
available for one flat management fee of 1% (incl. VAT) per annum.
Founder and CEO of InvestYourWay, Michael Newell, said: “The online
investment landscape is changing and InvestYourWay has been established
to provide a completely different type of experience. We go far beyond a
simple risk score by allowing our clients to select the products which
actually interest them. The result is an investment solution as unique
as they are.”
InvestYourWay’s vision for a better investment management service began
to take shape at the end of 2013 after securing a partnership with IG, a
global leader in online trading and a highly respected FTSE 250 company.
Building InvestYourWay into IG’s PureDeal platform means InvestYourWay
will be immediately available to over 85,000 existing IG clients, across
31 European countries and with a choice of three base currencies (GBP,
Jon Noble, CIO of IG, commented: “IG, as a global leader in online
trading, has a 40 year history of technological and product
innovation. InvestYourWay’s innovative technology, in association with
IG’s market-leading CFD product offers another pioneering option for
current and future clients, as part of an exciting suite of trading and
