Built to make investing easy

Automated technology is how we make investing easier, better, and more accessible.

Here's what easy looks like:

1. Tell us a little about you.
How much you want to invest, why you're investing, and your preferred timing.

2. Set up your account in minutes.
Get started with an investing goal or general investing account and make your first deposit.

3. Let us handle the hard stuff.
This is where we shine. From portfolio recos to fractional share investing to guidance on tax-efficient withdrawals.

Your investing portfolio made easy.

We custom-build our portfolios using either low-cost ETFs or cryptocurrencies. Your investments will automatically adjust when possible to help reduce the impact of market volatility and keep you on track.

Automated investing helps remove the hassle.

Once you deposit, we automatically invest in the market. No holding accounts or manual steps. Plus, our algorithms continually monitor and manage your portfolio at a fraction of the cost of a traditional advisor.
