At Betterment, we believe in full diversification—the kind that only buying the whole market can get you. Still, according to the Wall Street Journal, in these uncertain times, some people are choosing to diversify in unusual ways… Second Amendment style.
Perhaps we are witnessing the nascent beginnings of the great hollowpoint bubble of 2011. You have to respect creativity, but no investment is ever perfect. You don’t have to hide your Betterment statements from your kids.

So, we leave it up to you, the educated consumer, to decide. Just.. don’t point that investment at us, okay?
