Let’s take a closer look at today’s news from Raiz Invest.

The month that was for Raiz Invest

For the first time, Raiz’s Australian funds under management exceeded $750 million.

According to the company’s managing director and global CEO George Lucas, the company is on track to have over $1 billion under management by the end of the year.

Its managed superannuation funds also met a milestone, surpassing $100 million. This was pushed by a 4.7% increase to the amount of Australian super managed by the company over the course of May.

Further, the number of Australian customers signing up to the company’s services grew by 1.6% in May. Its managed Australian investment accounts increased by 1.8% in the same time.

Last month’s boost means the company now has 76.2% more Australian funds under management than it did this time last year.

According to Lucas, Ramadan affected the amount of new Indonesian and Malaysian customers the company signed up last month, which increased by 7.2% and 9.3%, respectively.

Finally, the company shared that Acorns Grow Inc – which Raiz split from in 2018 – is planning to list on the Nasdaq exchange.

Acorns is the second largest shareholder of Raiz Invest.
