Betterment makes it easy to save for retirement or any other goal. The individual goals you can create are really nice to see how much you have saved towards each one instead of just having one large pot of money. The iOS app is super simple to use and makes depositing money or seeing performance easy. I have not had an account long enough to really compare the returns to other investments. They recently added a much simpler view to see your annualized returns vs benchmarks on the website which should make comparisons easier moving forward. With Betterment you are using their robo advisor so don’t expect to pick your own funds. I believe that Betterment leans a little heavier on foreign fund than other similar robo advisors. But that doesn’t really matter as you set your stock/bond percentage that matches your desired risk level and Betterment does the rest. Betterment posts many helpful/interesting articles, but do take everything with a little grain of salt as many things are geared towards why they are right or how you can’t compare directly to other benchmarks. All in all I have loved this investing/savings tool. I have seen good returns and low fees. The app and web interface are clean and easy to use. Recommend for anyone looking to start investing/saving. If you are a more hands on investor, Betterment might not be for you, and you might want to look else where.
If I had the time, or the money, I would love to do all the trading myself. However, i simply don’t have the time. With the extremely low account management fees and the simple portfolio selection process, I’ve been able to place small weekly sums of money into my betterment account and I haven’t had to worry about investing it myself. This has definitely made saving/planning much easier and convenient and I am excited about the future. I’d definitely recommend this to any young individual (high school or college especially) who wants to start saving for retirement but hasn’t yet because they don’t have the time. It took 20 minutes to set up and the application is extremely user friendly.
Why in the world would you take away the different time views of the graph reflecting the performance of your investments..???? Why do you guys constantly feel the need to change the design of this app for the worse? It was at it’s most user-friendly/ most informative 3 years ago. It just keeps having features stripped away and it’s abysmal. More than market crashes or anything else, THIS has made me want to switch investment platforms more than anything else. EDIT(in response to the dev response): Why would you not at least make mention of this ‘slow transition of changes’ in the patch notes and save yourself from all the angry poor ratings? Great explanation, but it could have come a lot sooner.
I’ve used Betterment for years now and I love the service. What I don’t get is that the app keeps removing information. We used to be able to see our dollar and % gains for tax coordinated accounts, and now that information is gone. As far as I can tell, there has been no communication on why they changed this and it’s pretty clear that a lot of people want this. Just wish we knew why your making this information harder to find by making it website only. Update: Coordinated returns are now viewable in app. This was my only complaint and I have updated my rating to reflect this. Thank you.
A simple and clean app that allows you to do everything you need on a phone. I noticed a lot of bad reviews due to not being able to see portfolio break down. This is not an issue as you can look this up on a PC. During my lunch at work, I open the site to check on features not available on the phone. I think the app provides just enough to not overload you with numbers. It provides the important details and if you need more, visit the site! Started with a $500 deposit and already up over 1% in 2 weeks. Overall a great service so far.
