First off, it’s always good to know who you’re dealing with (pun intended!). You wouldn’t buy a phone without first finding out more about it and the company who built it, and the same goes for your financial products – like your Dodl investment account(s). 

Here you’ll learn all about who Dodl is – the people, company and culture behind it. We hope it’ll give you some more confidence in your new no-nonsense investment app. Now, it’s time for some introductions. 🤝 

Meet Team Dodl 👋 

There’s a great team hard at work behind Dodl, with AJ Bell expertise aplenty. And making investing easier for you brings us all together.

Here are just a few friendly faces you can put to the good Dodl name. FYI - this pic was taken in the early days, before we retired our monster mascots...but we love it, so leaving it here. ❤

Team Dodl

 

You’ll spot us on socials, the website and may even chat to one or two of us in the app!  

🔔 Though the team’s full of friendly experts, we’re not financial advisers and Dodl doesn’t offer advice. So if you’re not sure whether investing is right for you, you should chat to a qualified financial adviser about this. 

Meet AJ Bell 🤝

🔔 Remember, investing carries risk and nothing in this article should be taken as advice - Dodl doesn't give advice, but we do hope the info is helpful!


It's important to know

You have to be solely a UK citizen and resident to open an account with Dodl. If you're not solely a UK citizen but still want to invest, you may be able to open an account with our parent platform AJ Bell. 

The past performance of investments isn't an indicator of their future performance and their value can go down as well as up. This means you could get back less than you originally invested. 

Dodl doesn’t offer any advice so if you’re not sure about the risks involved with investing, you should speak to a suitable financial adviser. 

How you're taxed depends on your circumstances, and tax rules can change in future.
