2016 Robo-Advisor Mash Up – Links to the Best Posts

By in Investing, Links, Mutual Funds | 3 comments

Robo-advisors or technology assisted investing platforms are all the rage. What’s not to love-low fees, research-supported investment approaches and regular rebalancing. Not only are there stand-alone robo-advisors such as Wealthfront, Betterment, and Personal Capital but we’ve got the big brokers starting their own versions. These well known firms have joined the robo-advisory ranks; Schwab Intelligent Portfolios, Vanguard Personal Advisor Services, and then there’s TrakeKing Advisors. TradeKing offers a unique robo with access to a momentum style investing along with the passive approach.

Best robo-advisor articles. The pros, cons, + analysis.

I’ve been writing a lot about this new platform for Investopedia and think the opportunities for investors are so useful, I co-launched a review site called RoboAdvisorPros.com along with Grayson Bell. If you’re interested in a lazy and low cost approach to investment management, learn a bit about the growing robo-advisors. These new investment management firms are not all alike. The differences include investment style, available investments, features, minimums, types of accounts, access to advisors and more. You may find one to suit your style and save time and money.

  1. Thanks for pulling these all together – I’m gonna have to bookmark this page now. I just started investing less than a year ago, and I still don’t understand it all. I’m only 28 now, though, so I’ve got plenty of time.

    The gist of investing that I get from everyone is that it’s best to start yesterday, so I’m using Betterment for now until I can learn more about how to do it myself, and if I’d even be more effective at it doing it myself anyways.

    • Hi Lindsay, Betterment, Wealthfront, SigFig along with many of the robo-advisors are excellent options for the new and experienced investor. Their methods are solid and fees are low. Are you in a conservative, moderate or aggressive portfolio?
