Honestly powerful

I’ve had the app for a few months now and I’ll be honest I don’t completely understand everything about investing yet. however, I do know a little bit more than I did before I started. The app makes you feel less scared about investing which as a 21-year-old was honestly the best part. There’s also great articles that teach you about all sorts of different things that I never would have learned from School or my parents (who both don’t invest). I also find it really cool that you can choose to only invest in female ran companies. Overall, I find this app to be really powerful because I can now say I am investing for my future and tell my friends about it so hopefully more young people will start. Because honestly we need more young powerful females out there

More Data & Education About YOUR Accounts

I love Ellevest and everything it stands for, and as a woman in my late-twenties who had yet to build a dedicated investment account outside of my 401K, I was really excited to branch into investing with Ellevest! The articles and courses for learning are great. I think Ellevest still has a lot of improvements they can make on sharing data, insights and learnings for your accounts. Finding the accounts that my money is invested in and learning more about them isn’t super user-friendly or intuitive and honestly doesn’t make much sense. It would be great if there were articles or an easy way to learn more about what they’ve invested my money in and why. There’s a chart that shows my overall projections based on what I invest each month, but I’d also love to see a chart with my overall account holdings over time and see how it’s risen and grown. I feel like their education offerings are very generic and would appreciate if they could build those features out to be more specific or at least link to education articles that could teach me more when I’m in my account looking at my portfolio. Overall, I really believe in this company and am glad to be supporting it, but I don’t feel like I’m learning as much as I could and don’t have as much visibility and education on my portfolio as I’d like. Hoping that’s in their improvement plans in the coming year!

Fan of the brand not the app

I love Ellevest as a brand and have followed their newsletters for months before downloading the app and starting an investment account. I am shocked at how buggy the app experience is - 1) logging in was a pain because Face ID and any saved passwords were not working at all; the login boxes remained blank. 2) I reset my password and after getting an in-app confirmation, something was running in the backend that forced the app to run without dimming or locking, so by the time I got back to my phone it was raging hot. 3) The text input was wonky and every time I tried inputting my login info or reset password info the CTA under it would block the text somehow so it was hard to see what I was typing? 4) Basic things like changing linked bank accounts or upgrading/downgrading/canceling memberships are difficult, and I get it, you need to make money but it’s a treasure hunt which is an unpleasant user experience.

Things I do love: the brand, Sallie, and the aesthetic of the app. The content available is also very interesting and I’ll give the app some more of my time!
