Hello, Risers.

We’ve got news! We’ve recently released a new version of the Rise app which has a lot of new features that gives you a better wealth management experience. 

Here’s a summary of what we’ve released in the last month:

  • Wallet Interest: Starting today, money in your Rise wallet will earn 8% annual interest. We have noticed that one of the many ways our users use Rise is to keep money in their wallets in USD while waiting for a great investment opportunity. Now, that money will earn interest for you. You can still make a withdrawal from your wallet any time and receive the funds within 24 hours. And you can move from your wallet to an investment plan easily. It’s another way Rise helps you to grow your money effortlessly.
  • Usernames: You can now create usernames on Rise. This allows you to gift money or investment plans to your friends and loved ones with just their usernames. No need to share or expose your emails to send or receive money between Rise users. To create your username, go to Account > Edit Profile. If you want to send money to another Rise user, go to Wallet > Send Money > Send to Rise user.

To gift a plan, go to Plans > Gift a Plan. Additionally, you can send money or an investment plan to your friend or loved one even if they do not have a Rise account. It’s a great way to introduce them to investing.

  • Feed: We launched the content Feed to keep you in the driver’s seat. This is where you will receive portfolio and market updates, research notes about our new assets, educational articles and news about Rise and your money. We want you to not only invest but understand how the markets work. Feed lets you follow along the Rise team as we grow your money.

These updates are based on our promise to help our users build wealth and achieve their financial goals. Update your app and let us know what you think about these new features at [email protected] or send us a tweet on @risevest

There is still so much to do, but we are excited about the journey ahead and grateful to the 200,000 thousand people who have chosen us as their investment managers.
