Our low 0.25% fee is low and transparent.
For digital advice, you pay a small percentage of your balance annually and we have no minimum balance. That's far less than many traditional financial advisors, and it means our interests are aligned to yours.See pricing
We build you a portfolio and handle all the trading.
Once you tell us why you're investing, we recommend a portfolio and manage it from there.
We put every penny to work. Fast.
We trade fractional shares, which means all your deposits—and dividends you earn—are fully invested into the market. That means far less cash dragging down your returns.
We rebalance with precision.
There's no rebalancing schedule at Betterment. Portfolios rebalance automatically once your allocation of stocks and bonds drifts far enough from its target.
We're your fiduciary. We do what's right for you.
We don't sell our own funds.
Other providers earn more by selling their own funds. We don't have that conflict of interest.
We'll help you save.
We'll tell you which tax-advantaged accounts to choose and which providers may be charging you high fees.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
We are committed to giving you a great experience. If you aren't completely satisfied with your Betterment account, we will do everything we can to make it right—up to and including waiving Betterment's management fees for the next 90 days.†Start investing
