Any Questions?

What do I need to provide to open an account?

Creating an account with Gather is simple. You’ll need to provide the following details to verify your identity and comply with the UK’s anti-money laundering guidance:

  • Name

  • Date of birth

  • Email address

  • Mobile number

  • Full address

  • National Insurance number

If we’re unable to verify your identity using the information provided, you’ll need to supply a copy of your ID, such as your passport or driving licence. If prompted, contact our support team at and we’ll be happy to assist. We do not hold on to the documentation once it has been used to verify your identity.

You’ll also need your bank account details to hand, so you can add funds to be invested.

What are Albums and Playlists?

Investment Playlists and Albums are our names for the different types of investments we offer. You can invest in as many Playlists or Albums as you want.

Investment Playlists

Our Investment Playlists are collections of investments grouped by their style of investment. From risk mitigation to maximum growth opportunity, Gather aims to have a Playlist to suit all tastes.

Investment Albums

Our Investment Albums are also collections of investments — but instead of being grouped by investment style, they share a theme - for example, Esports. Investing in an Album means your capital is being invested in companies and assets related to the theme, putting you in a position to potentially profit if these grow and succeed.

How do I decide which Playlist is right for me?

Investment Playlists contain investments grouped by their style of investment and approach to risk and growth. You can read about the approach of each Playlist and decide if it will help you potentially meet your financial goals. Gather does not provide financial advice, but we do provide information on each Playlist on our platform.

You are able to invest in as many different Investment Albums or Playlists as you wish.

Investment Playlists contain investments grouped by their style of investment and approach to risk and growth. Maintenance fees are charged at 0.08% of net account value each month.

Investment Albums contain investments grouped by a theme, for example, Esports, Green Energy. Maintenance fees are charged at 0.05% of net account value each month.

Are there minimum or maximum funding limits?
