Hi,

I prefer wealthfront. You don't need to pay management fee for $10,000. I get 5% return in about 2 weeks. There is a very good introduction article: http://www.delbertbao.net/2014/11/30/wealthfront-an-introduction/ also if apply by the link in the article, can get $15,000 free of charge

Wealthfront vs. betterment


If you flip a coin you will get heads or tails, no other possible answer. So it's kinda dumb if both answers are completely wrong at the outset.
You will not become wealthy (or even well-off) by paying someone to pick ETFs and index funds for you, you'll need to educate yourself - learn what things grow tax-deferred with low overhead, what are the probable longterm outcomes, etc. (About 85% of fund managers fail to beat the market averages.)

Eg, $5000/yr at 11%/yr = $1,100,000 in 30 yrs. If your manager gets 2.5%/yr for his service, it is $674,000. Ie, a $470,000 cost.

Wealthfront is aimed at larger deposits, for sure. But the interesting thing is that Betterment makes it way easier to incrementally invest, which makes me much more likely to put more into Betterment than Wealthfront.

RockyX and Delbertbao are posting from the same ip address, so I'm going to assume this is spam until further notice.
