Trading on Whaley

Whaley allows users to invest in a list of popular global and domestic equities at the touch of a button. Trades are executed at 16:30 AEST, at the market price at the time of execution. On occasion, the markets may reject your order based on varying circumstances. More information about this is contained below.

Orders and Executions

When users place an order on the Whaley Platform, that order is first matched to a corresponding internal buyer or seller where appropriate. If an order is unable to be met from internal demand, then the order is filled via external markets.

The price executed is the market price at the time of sale.

How does it work

At Whaley, we have a legal structure and investment engine working in the background to enable us to streamline the process of investing for you. If you would like more information please contact us directly.

Day or Option Trading

Whaley does not allow day or option trading. We aim to encourage long-term investing.

Who is Whaley?

Whaley is a Financial Services Company founded by Sam Nixon and Matt Jones in early 2017. Whaley currently resides in Stone & Chalk in the Sydney CBD, and is backed by one of Australia’s most notable investors – H2 Ventures.

What’s Whaley’s Story?

Matt and Sam met during a Hackathon event in 2016 hosted by H2 Ventures. After spending 48 hours building an investment framework to help Millennials have access to the housing market they realised that the problem was with investing more broadly, and thus Whaley was born.

How do Whaley make Money?

Whaley charges no commissions, with a Funds under Management charge beginning at 0.5% and reducing in amount dependent upon certain behaviour (i.e. diversification through 5+ investments attracts at 10% discount).

How does Whaley’s Fee Structure work?

Whaley has designed a low-cost investing solution that is designed to encourage and support correct investing behaviour.

This allows us to not charge any commissions, instead charging a flat fee of 0.5% per year on funds under management.

However, Whaley wants to support and encourage correct financial behaviour and have therefore developed a Goal Investing Framework that provides certain incentives to enable this. Therefore, when a person:

  •  Holds 5+ investments = 5% discount on fees;
  • Sets up an auto-investment = 5% discount on fees;
  • Holds asset for longer than 12 months = 5% discount for the fees on the asset;
  • Funds exceed $1,000 = 5% discount on fees;
  • Funds exceed $10,000 = 5% discount on fees.
  • Funds exceed $20,000 = 5% discount on fees.

How do I sign up?

Whaley is currently under development and will be available for early-release in mid 2018. To be one of the first in line we encourage you to join our waitlist and beginning referring friends.

How do I transfer and withdraw money?

Rather then providing a seperate cash management account Whaley draws directly from your transactional bank account, allowing for a seamless wealth experience.

This allows for money to be deposited and withdrawn directly from your one location.

When will Whaley be ready for use?

Whaley plans on early release in mid-July 2018.
