Betterment’s Tax-Coordinated Portfolio could increase after-tax returns by 15% over 30 years.

1 This comparison is based on the average plan-weighted annual fee for all 401(k)s of 0.97% (management and fund expenses) according to this independent study of employer-sponsored plans and a lower cost IRA charging an annual fee of 0.37% (management and fund expenses). Betterment's annual advisory fee is 0.25% for its Digital Plan, and fees for the underlying investments total between 0.07% and 0.17%. See pricing details.

2 2.20% yield is the asset-weighted blend of the 30 Day SEC Yield as of 1/2/2019 (a standardized calculation that reflects the dividends and interest earned after deduction of the fund’s expenses) of the ETFs that comprise this portfolio net of Betterment’s management fee (0.25% for its Digital plan). The ETFs were chosen with an aim to limit risk and produce income. Yield is an important number in evaluating a low-risk, all-bond portfolio, but is distinct from actual investment returns, which may vary. 20X the average savings account is calculated by taking the FDIC’s national average savings account interest rate for deposits under $100,000 of 0.09% (as of 1/2/2019) compared to 2.20%, the expected yield of a Betterment Smart Saver portfolio.
