What's a robo advisor?
A robo advisor is an affordable digital financial service that uses technology to help automate investing based on information investors provide about themselves and their financial situation. "Robo" refers to these services being almost completely digital, and that computers, smartphones, or tablets are used to access and interact with your accounts. "Advisor" speaks to the investment advisors that offer digital advice and account management services, often for a lower fee than traditional investment advisory services.
What's a hybrid robo advisor?
A hybrid robo advisor is a service that typically combines a professionally managed account (through the help of a robo advisory service) with access to financial guidance or planning. For many hybrid robo advisors, the guidance and planning services are available through phone or video calls with human financial advisors. By meeting over the phone and through computer or app-based video conferencing, these services can come at a lower cost than meeting in person with a traditional financial advisor.
How do robo advisors work?
Robo advisors use various pieces of information about an investor to suggest an investment strategy. In most cases, you'll first be asked some questions online or through an app about yourself and your current financial situation. A robo advisor then uses that information to suggest an investment strategy for your financial goals. Investment strategies can include a mix of different types of investments and many robo advisors include account rebalancing services to help your investments stay in line with your financial goals and preferences.
How does coaching work?
Your financial wellness is our priority. We want to help you navigate life's big decisions by giving you the flexibility to get advice when and how you need it. Our online coaching means 24/7 access to financial planning tools and curated articles relevant to your situation. Then, if you need to go deeper and want advice from our trained advisors, you can schedule a 30-minute coaching call on specific topics.
How does investment management work?
You'll start by telling us about yourself and your individual financial goals—then we'll suggest an investment strategy for your account. We'll then manage your money in accordance with that goal, helping you track your progress and providing coaching calls along the way.
What happens after I enroll?
We begin our relationship with the most important part: getting to know you. Your online profile helps us understand your goals—and we'll also gauge your current financial needs. From there, we'll propose an investment strategy, as well as recommend next steps to help you improve your financial health.
What if my needs change?
Life takes turns—and we want to know all about them. At least once a year, we'll ask you to review your information, checking in with you to make sure nothing major in your life has changed. If necessary, we can adjust your investment strategy to help ensure it's consistent with your new situation. And remember, this is a relationship. So, as your needs change, let us know and we may update your investment strategy to align with your new goals. We encourage you not to wait until your next annual review to contact us!
