Wealthfront is an automated investment service with over $3 billion in client assets under management. They make it easier for anyone to get access to a sophisticated, diversified long-term investment portfolio without the high fees & account minimums of traditional wealth managers. Historically you needed to invest at least $1 million in order to get the attention of a quality financial advisor or wealth management professional, and then had to pay at least 1% per year in management fees. They create an individual investment plan tailored specifically to you that’s designed to maximize your long-term after-tax returns. Wealthfront charges no trading commissions, and performed over 2.5 Million free trades for our clients in 2015 alone. That’s over $20 million in saved fees at $8 per trade. Though for you listeners, Wealthfront is doing something very special. If you go to wealthfront.com/ru, you can get your first 15% managed for free.
