What is Pynk?

Is Pynk a Wealth Management App?

Pynk is many things to many people, but first and foremost we are a regulated wealth management app for everyday investors.

Investing

What is the minimum investment?

You can start investing from as little as £10. When our portfolio opens to investors you will be able to invest as and when you like. In future, we'll add features allowing you to either invest a regular monthly amount automatically, round up your purchases or just what you can afford, when you can afford it.

What is the maximum investment?

You can start investing up to a maximum of GBP £20,000 fee-free (as long as you predict regularly). There's no limit to how much you can invest, but over £20,000 you'll pay our standard fees.

How much interest will I earn?

As with any managed portfolio, the amount of interest you will earn is based on the performance of the underlying assets. Rest assured, the Pynk Crowd Wisdom system is working as hard as possible to generate the best possible outcomes for you. That being said, as is the case with any investment, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. Tax treatments depend on individual circumstances and where you pay tax and may be subject to change in the future. If you're unsure, please seek financial advice.

Is my money safe with Pynk?

Pynk offers its investment services as an appointed representative of Risksave Limited, a Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulated entity in the UK. Our investment activity is to be monitored and controlled according to FCA regulations, meaning you can be sure your money is treated with the utmost of care.

Will USA citizens be allowed to invest in Pynk?

At launch, we cannot accept investment monies from the USA - due to regulatory restrictions in that jurisdiction. That said, we are planning to expand to the USA in the longer term.

We have many ESG-focused additions coming to the platform, giving you transparency as well as feedback on the ESG performance of all kinds of investments. As a Crowd member, you'll be able to influence the ESG policy of Pynk. And in later releases, you'll be able to shape your portfolio according to your ESG preferences.
