We've been called "the Apple of Finance," in part because of our delightful UX. Use one login to access and manage multiple portfolios with our intuitive dashboard. We offer the flexibility to invest in taxable accounts, IRAs, and trusts.
By handling every part of the investment process we provide the best possible experience to customers. This means some of the fastest cash transfers in the industry, tax forms available at the earliest possible date, and tighter security because of less exposure to third-party risk.
We put every cent of your money to work by purchasing fractional shares, which means no loss of performance due to holding cash. Ask any other online investment manager if they're able to do that.
Our investment experts constantly evaluate the best ways to put your money to work. Betterment portfolios are completely liquid, and you can access your money at any time.
