Latest App Release: 11 July 2022

We got rid of all those pesky forms; withdrawals are now automated within the app! We’ve also made it easier to transfer your investment into USD Cash, in case you want to sit out the market for a minute. With this option, your funds will hold in USD Cash (idly watching the grass grow), waiting and ready for when you want to dive back in.

Dashboard Updates & TFN Capture

This release, we focused on updating the dashboard. This included a visual and functional update for the graph and improved number crunching for our profit and loss calculation. We also added the ability for you to provide us with your tax file number and informational screens that appear for new users the first time they open the app.

Profit & Loss Calculation
We’ve improved our number crunching. Previously, the figures for performance included investments; every time you added money, the figures went up. While satisfying to see, the movement was more a reflection of your new investments rather than fund performance. We’ve made it clearer; our new calculation ignores investments and withdrawals. This means that the performance numbers will have changed with the update.

Graph Time Period Filters
We heard you when you said you wanted the time period filters back on the dashboard, and so we brought them back (and added a visual update). Once again, you can filter performance by week, month, year, or all time.

You can now provide us with your tax file number (if you wish) to make tax time easier. To do so, open the main menu, tap My Account, and see My Details. If provided, we’ll pass your investment information onto the ATO for you. We’ll also be sending your annual tax statement via email in July.

To help give new users a better idea of what they’re getting into with Unhedged, we’ve released informational first-time download screens. These are screens that’ll pop up when a new user first opens the app, and they just provide a bit more information about who we are and what new users can expect.

App Styling Updates

We have been busy working on some larger app features, which will be released shortly - stay tuned! In the meantime, we’ve released a new main menu and made some minor bug fixes to keep your experience glitch-free.

New Main Menu
We’ve developed a fresh and personalised new main menu. It’s accessible from the same place as always, the menu icon in the top left corner of the dashboard. We’ve simplified things and made it more visually appealing (we think). We hope you like it!

Other Small Changes
As we build out the app and grow, we’ve found the occasional bug to squash. There were a few of those glitches that we fixed with the latest update, including visual and customer journey improvements.

18 May 2022
User Sign-up Flow Changes

Since our launch a few months ago, we’ve observed our customers signing up for live accounts in record times, with the average time being 4.5 minutes! We originally expected this would take around 10 minutes, so we’re a tad impressed. Our first update has to do with making that process even easier.

First Time Login Page
This release, we wanted to give customers the chance to sign up to a live account right from the start, and to challenge them to do it even faster than the 4.5-minute average. So the login screen now prompts customers to open a live account straightaway with the option to skip to a demo account as the alternative.

Profile Icon & Menu Updates
We have removed the profile icon from the home screen. It was originally intended to allow customers to upload a profile photo, but the function was never built. So its presence there, just hanging about, was confusing people. Hence, we removed it (to make room for bigger and better things). You can now access your account page through the menu at the top left of your dashboard. You’ll find your login, personal, and bank details there under Settings.

Allocation and Dashboard Changes

This release was a big under-the-hood exercise: we have made the app faster and prepared for some major new features in the coming months. The more notable changes are:

We have added more space for the graph by tidying up the graph axis and to make space for the benchmarks we will launch in a few releases.

View Allocation
One of the most significant changes we made is that the allocation actually shows your current ratio between the algorithms instead of the chosen ones. Some algorithms do better than others and slowly over time the ratio will shift. We wanted to show that to you so that you can decide whether to adjust your allocation or not~

~ Changes to allocations may incur a buy/sell spread and may trigger a capital gains tax event. The buy/sell spread is to recover transaction costs in relation to such a change. See PDS for details.

1 April 2022
Easier Navigation and Additional Backtested Demo Data

More backtest data in Demo
We’ve extended the data in the Demo Account to give you three years of historical simulated performance in addition to our live performance. From October 2021 the graph reflects Fund performance.

Easier Navigation
We've added a bottom menu, that makes it easier to go places in the app and switch between your demo and live account. We have also improved the platform's stability and fixed a few bugs.
