You come first
We have one mission: To empower you to make the most of your money, so you can live better.
The old way of managing money is broken.
When it comes to investing for the future, you've likely had a couple of options: You could do it yourself, or you could hand it off to an investment manager. The first can be tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone; the second has historically meant tolerating outdated technology and potential conflicts of interest.
You deserve a better way to invest.
Jon Stein created Betterment because he believed that people's money should work as hard for them as they worked to earn it. By combining proven investment strategies with technology that drives down costs, Jon believed that people would finally have a way to make the most of their money.
The new way of managing money puts you first.
We're a fiduciary, which means we act in your best interests. We're not incentivized to recommend certain funds, and we don't have our own investment products to sell. That means we'll do what we believe is right for you.
