Ask an Expert: All About the Investment Process

Ask an Expert: All About the Investment Process

Hey everyone, I’m Jon Stein. After seeing product after product that made the investing process more complicated than it ought to be, I set out to create a broadly accessible investment company to help investors achieve their biggest goals. Passionate about helping people make smart decisions with their money, I founded Betterment in 2008.

Previously, I spent my career developing financial products, platforms, and investment strategies for international banks, brokers, and other institutions. I have in-depth knowledge of retail banking and investing, am a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), and a Series 7, 24, and 63 Registered Securities Representative. I’m also a graduate of Harvard University and Columbia Business School. I’m here for the next hour tackling all of your burning questions about the investment process, so ask away!
