Migration to the new Dozens accounts may have been completed, but the development is not slowing down.
Customers will be receiving news of further updates to the Dozens app via email, but I thought I would also share this in the community.
New Investment fund options
Ever since we launched the Invest shelf just over 1 year ago, we’ve been getting requests for some broader funds. While we’ve chosen a range of ETFs to cover different risk levels and with different strategies to suit our customers’ interests, we are always on the lookout for other suitable and varied opportunities.
We are very excited to announce that we have now also added two ranges of Multi-asset funds to the Invest shelf - the Vanguard LifeStrategy and BlackRock Consensus funds. To learn more about these options, you can read this post:
Depending on your personal risk profile, there are now up to 35 different options to consider for your long term investment needs, and I would be very interested to hear which are your favourites. Even if you are not yet an investor, you can browse these in the app.
Let me be Direct
One of the things we’ve been asked about from the time we launched is whether we offered Direct Debits. These are very useful if you are using the account for regular and larger spending. We were not able to offer these until now, but that changed today.
If you go to your app this afternoon you will be prompted to update it again and this will add the Direct Debit capability.
Now you can agree to set up Direct Debits to pay for your subscriptions; be they magazines, wines or maybe charity donations, and track these in your Spend list and also your Track budget.
If you set one up with a business it will usually take 1 business day for the information to be passed back to us and for it to appear in the app, but you can now go to Spend and click on ‘payments’ and see, and cancel if necessary, any Direct Debits on your account.
We trust this will make it easier to manage your spend and therefore make your Dozens account even more useful.
Next week we will have even more news for you on other app developments and on the waitlist.
