Where's best to start with a £50 investment? 💷

Different providers and asset types have different minimums (which is the smallest amount of money you can deposit in your account when you open it). In the UK, this value commonly ranges between £0-50, but can be much more (in the hundreds). In this article, we will look into some of the best options available with a £50 deposit.


In this section, we cover some of the investment platforms on the market available to investors with £50 or more to invest with. We’ve covered a few different asset classes, each with appropriate minimum investment amounts to suit this criteria.  We’ve also listed what they offer, some of the key features of each provider, and their exact minimum.

What kind of assets can I invest in with £50?

Low minimums and subsequent increased access to investors is one of the biggest growth areas in the investing world. Shares, ETFs, alternatives and even crypto are just some different areas investors can access with £50 or more.

Minimums and rewards

Remember, some providers may have certain minimums, but with additional criteria  required to achieve certain welcome rewards, cashback or incentives. Make sure you check out all the terms and conditions associated with any offers to make sure you are eligible to any applicable criteria.

Is £50 enough to get started?

Absolutely. Investing is personal to the individual. This can be apparent in what people invest in, and of course by how much they want to invest. When it comes to it, it's important to only ever invest money you can afford to lose, and invest generally for long-term returns. £50 is more than enough to get a portfolio started.


I have less than £50, is that enough?

Many investment providers have minimum deposit amounts below £50 and some go as little as £1. We’ve provided another comparison for investors with £10 or less to invest with here. For simplicity, we’ve only included providers in and around the £50 minimum amount mark in this comparison.
