Guided Wealth Portfolios is our digital investing solution that allows you to invest online with a low starting minimum and low-cost, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) while working with a personal financial advisor. Whereas other, similar solutions, called “robo advisors,” often require a large investment amount before granting access to a dedicated financial advisor, our solution allows you to start with only $5,000. *
With Guided Wealth Portfolios, you get a diversified portfolio personalized for you and your individual investment goals. Guided Wealth Portfolios is an innovative way to invest for your future, whether you want to invest for retirement or a major purchase like a new home—or simply want to get your money in the markets so it is not sitting idle. You will also get to build a relationship with a financial advisor and engage with a personalized, online dashboard that shows you how your account is doing along the way.
If you like your Guided Wealth Portfolios proposal and want to begin working with a financial advisor while enjoying the convenience of online investing, you can choose to open an account immediately. You will have the option to transfer an existing investment account or fund your account with cash—it is just that easy.
We implement your personal portfolio using proven diversification techniques and sophisticated algorithms. You will receive allocations designed for you and your savings goals, and benefit from trading techniques that can help reduce taxes. Your portfolio is monitored daily, keeping it on track as markets move, and rebalancing it as needed.
*The annual fee is .8%. An annual small account fee of $20 (billed $5/quarter) is applied to accounts with less than $10,000 invested. Additional fees will apply (inquire for details).
