Today we’re excited to announce enhanced advice to better help our customers reach their life goals.  The feature lets users know if they are on or off track to achieving their goals and makes a number of recommendations to improve the likelihood of success. The advice can be customized and executed with the click of a mouse.

When we think of our investments, what we really want to know is “am I on track for the life I lead and the future?”.

We shouldn’t be concerned with market movements or the minutiae of our portfolio. With Betterment’s enhanced advice you will know the answer to this question, fix any issues in two clicks, and get back to living life.

We hope you like it!
