Your guide to investing with Wealthfront
Interested in investing with us? This guide breaks down our simple strategy, how we make investing effortless, and our real performance.Start investing
Focus on the things you
Our software invests your money in a portfolio of low-cost index funds spread across global asset classes. Since no one can predict how the market will perform, we focus on factors we can influence: tax, cost, and risk.
We invest your money across the right mix of asset classes for your risk tolerance. To maintain this diversification, we automatically rebalance your portfolio.
Timing the market just doesn’t work
Over a one-year period, about 85% of funds that tried to time the market failed to perform as well as the S&P 500 (an index that tracks the performance of the 500 largest public companies in the US). This underperformance is consistent even over longer time periods.
