Today, we are going to talk about a tool that makes investing painless, profitable, and fun. It’s called Betterment.com. I started investing with Betterment in January. I’m now 30 days in and ready to report some reasons why I think every single New Grad needs to have an account.
What is Betterment?
Betterment is an automated investing platform that allows you, the investor, to invest in a preselected assortment of stocks and bonds.
You simply tell Betterment what percentage of your money to put in stocks and what percentage to put in bonds. Betterment then automatically places your money into stocks and bonds as you directed.
