A classic example of high growth/tech rubbish with zero management
If you thought the Nasdaq losing 30% was bad, spaceship somehow have managed to lose over 40% during the same period. Can you imagine what would happen if there was an actual collapse, when it drops this hard for a correction. Their portfolios consist of high growth junk with ultra high PE ratios. It’s essentially the Australian version of Ark invest in the USA. Don’t expect the managers to implement any sensible portfolio management to minimise downside risk. You can just kiss your capital goodbye. First it was the cheeky change to the management fee - then comes the utter collapse of funds. To my knowledge, all the managers associated with this are no more than finfluencers with zero investment knowledge. Avoid at all costs.
Don't use it
Before investing, past year performance (during covid) is +25%. Within few months of investing a good sum, I lost half of my investment (post covid). If this still makes sense to you, good luck. I think I will have to pull my investments after 12 years still with a loss.
Do not touch Spaceship investment
I’ve been with spaceship since Aug 2021 have lost 45% of my investment. Buyer beware. I kept thinking- be patient give it time but I’ve lost increasingly in the past 3 mths and I don’t want to pay fees for that level of incompetency. You work to earn your money don’t throw it away with spaceship investments

I put in $3000 at the lowest point during the pandemic, 2 years later I have lost about 40% of it. at the same time, I invested the same amount into a major bank and a national airline, making about 30%. There weren't management fees when I signed up, now they are taking $2.50p/m. I would be happy to pay if I was making some kind of profit.
Well that was a quick was to lose 40%
In a period of less than 12 months, I am down nearly 40%. Kind of makes you wonder why they call it a managed fund - when there is obviously zero management.
Lost 40 per cent of my investment. Fees were introduced after I signed up, despite their no fee model for sub-$5k investments being a big part of their sales pitch.
I went with Spaceship Universe. Originally they offered no fees on balances under 5k. They introduced fees soon after I joined and, on top of that, they lost 30% of my investment over 6 months. The market is going through a turbulent time but I have other investments and none of them have lost this much.
The worst decision ever
A friend recommended Spaceship. In a 6 month period I lost nearly 50% of my investment. I know the Stockmarket is down but other investments didn’t fair nearly as badly as they were managed to minimise loss. Spaceship just continued to spiral downwards month after month.
Do NOT invest with Spaceship
As stated by other reviewers, the fund has plumeted in value in the last 5-7 months.
They've lost easily 20%, possibly as much as 30-40% of investor's funds.
The early returns (pre 2022) looked too good to be true, because they were.
Whoever is behind this fund clearly doesn't care about protecting their client's funds and should be investigated for financial mismanagement.
Not too bad yet, maybe also too early to tell?
I believe in their long term strategy. Buying cheap is good right now, let's see what 7 years minimum brings for me (only just over a year for me at this stage). I like more about How much I know about investing thanks to their app. I have generally found their portfolio goes up and down as a mirror to market. Like I said I do also like buying units on the cheap as it's early days for me so not complaining, in for the long run.
Not a managed investment fund
Spaceship voyager has plummeted in value losing almost 50% over the last 6 months (Nov 2021 - Apr 2022). Whilst most funds are managed with strategies to minimise losses in the event of stock crashes, it soars that voyager did not. No changes have been made at any time during the stock crash. During the same period, Raiz has pivoted to minimise losses to only around 6%. I would not recommend this fund to anyone who value their money.
Made an initial investment 6 months ago and has had nothing but a downwards trend since.. Fees come out and balance keeps trending down.. If you were to put your super in with these apparent experts it's unlikely you will have a balance at retirement.. hopefully they can turn it around..
thanks for your reviews
thank you to all of you out there. I was going to recommend them, but stopped short and decided to do a bit of research. I have asked my son to be careful of any apps where you cant go in and speak to someone and read reviews before you commit to anything
