Over the past 10 years, I’ve been adding loose change, spare cash and savings into a UBank account. I always thought this was the best way to save over the long term. Until the interest rate headed downhill to a miserable 1%. Then I heard about Spaceship Voyager.
Spaceship Voyager is run by the same company that runs Spaceship Super. Started in 2018 Spaceship only invests in technology-related companies mainly in the US. If you like technology, you will like this portfolio as well as the returns.
I decided to invest in the Spaceship Universe Portfolio (Around 30% per annum return on the Spaceship Universe Portfolio.) I deposited a lump sum payment and then soon will add the fortnightly or monthly payments into the account as I do with UBank.
Spaceship Voyager Portfolios

What I didn’t like about the signup process
- Deposits from your bank into your spaceship account can take up to 48 hours. A little slow. Could be bank dependant.
- I dont like linking my banking login details. This is optional but can take longer to verify your account manually with customer service. You need to send copies of your ID.

Overall I’m happy with Spaceship Voyager. From account creation, reporting and the app, I’ve been able to track my investment, deposit regularly and watch my investments grow. The low fees are a stand out especially for small investors who don’t have disposable income but still want to invest in the market and grow a portfolio. Which such low interest rates from banks, this is a great option to grow your portfolio and invest with your savings.
