In short, we love the mission of Acorns.
Investing is a crucial pillar of capitalism and stimulating investment is at the center of most monetary and fiscal policy decisions. Since the inception of Wall Street, there has been tremendous friction that keeps consumers from opening their first investment accounts. Fortunately, ACORNS has created a micro-investing platform that has eliminated this friction. It’s so easy, over 1.5 million people have downloaded the app and opened an account!
Acorns is the leading micro investing app in the U.S. It’s easy-to-use, mobile-first technology makes it simple for anyone to set aside and invest life’s spare money. Acorns allows customers to automatically invest in a low-cost, diversified portfolio of exchange-traded funds offered by some of the world’s top asset managers (including Vanguard and Blackrock). Customers grow their wealth in one of five portfolios constructed with help from world-renowned Nobel Laureate economist Dr. Harry Markowitz. Acorns smart portfolio algorithms automatically work in the background of life, helping users build wealth naturally, pennies at a time. From Acorns mighty oaks do grow. You can access Acorns simply and easily via the app for iPhone, Android or desktop. Visit Acorns.com for more.
