Bestinvest is launching a transfer draw with a cashback of up to £1,000

  • New and existing customers qualify for the transfer contract
  • A transfer of £100,000 would bring in £1,000, while £1,000 would bring in £100
  • The offer runs for almost three months from September 4th to November 30th

Online platform Bestinvest is launching a draw for up to £1,000 cashback for transferring new accounts to the platform.

New and existing customers can receive a cashback amount depending on the size of the investment accounts transferred and the remaining investment period of at least six months.

Those who transfer accounts worth £1,000 will be entitled to a refund of £100 – a 10% increase in contribution. Meanwhile, those who switch their accounts worth £100,000 will receive £1,000.

For new account transfers you will receive £300 cashback for £20,000 deposited and £600 cashback for £50,000 deposited.

Savers must transfer their investment accounts in full and the offer is valid for just under three months, from September 4th to November 30th.

It’s per person, so a family of four who transfer accounts into each of their names could potentially earn up to £4,000 in one go.

What’s in the fine print?

To qualify for Bestinvest’s transfer draw, at least £1,000 must be transferred and invested in funds and stocks of the customer’s choice before November 30 this year and then held in the account for six months until May 31, 2024.

The money must be transferred to a Bestinvest general investment account, Isa, Junior Isa or Sipp, and invested immediately.

To claim the cashback, customers must fill out a form on the Bestinvest website and provide their account number by November 30 at the latest.

Bestinvest will determine the final premium amount and then contact the intermediaries to confirm the amount and how it will be used.

For example, those who have an investment account will receive the cashback directly into their account, and the same applies to those who have a stocks and shares Isa, a junior Isa or a Sipp if they have any unused Isa or pension withdrawals left over .

Once they have exhausted their pension and ISA allowances, the cashback bonus will be paid into a bank account.

Oliver Plant, director of Bestinvest, said: “In these difficult financial times, everyone would appreciate a helping hand. That’s why we hope this offering will encourage investors to find a new home for their investments and add some oomph to their portfolio.”

“Cashback of up to £1,000 can provide a small boost to lackluster portfolios that need to get back on track.”

“Financial markets, particularly stocks, can be volatile in the short term, but have historically delivered much higher real returns over the long term – that is, returns that exceed the effect of inflation.”

“We recommend a time horizon of at least five years or more, as this allows the money invested to weather short-term market volatility.”
