Ratings and Reviews
So far I’m very pleased. I’m disabled and have had two back surgeries as well as cancer and I’m not quite 50 as of yet. Luckily I had a long term disability insurance policy. I had to actually fight the insurance company to keep receiving my benefits after I’d found out I had cancer. I had to have a huge tumor removed from behind my liver in august 2018 and when I awoke my then wife informed me I had won the appeal. It was a blessing from god. The policy is until I’m 66. That’s basically 16 more years. Then from then on it will be social security only so my plan is to save and invest every penny I can obtain between now and then. I had to fight the insurance for my benefits at the exact same time I was fighting for my life and I beat both with the help of God and I’m grateful but it taught me to be better prepared and that is the reason for Wealthfront. My home was also flooded and I lost everything in 2019. Since then I purchased a nice large camper and now that my kids are grown and in college my plan is to continue living as cheaply as possible since I’m alone now and save every single cent I can obtain and invest with Wealthfront. So far I couldn’t be happier and would just like to thank Wealthfront so far and look forward to seeing how large it can grow in the upcoming years. Thanks so much.
This is my first time investing with a plan and not randomly buying a stock and selling it two weeks later. Wealthfront has been perfect for me. It helps beginners like me set goals and gain a lot of starting knowledge on what I need to be doing in the world of investing without worry of losing a lot of money. Robo-advisors (especially like wealthfront) are a great place to learn new skills to help you grow your portfolio in the beginning for a very small fee and a very small initial investment. For anyone that’s already knowledgeable about investing then this may not be the place for you. It’s hard to get into depth or immediately make changes to your portfolio. You can choose where you would like your money to go but it will take days or weeks for wealthfront to move your money in a “smart” manner. But overall I’m so glad I started here. I feel confident I can learn and make my investment grow. I know that if I stick with it, there’s a chance that I’ll outgrow wealthfront and at if that point comes I can use my money elsewhere with the knowledge wealthfront has helped me gain. This app has made me realize that most people truly don’t have an excuse anymore for not getting into investing.
Very Functional and Easy to Use
This app is very functional and easy to use. It gives users a quick way to assess their complete financial situation through the ability to link to all your external accounts with other financial institutions. It will also show a projection of your financial situation throughout your lifetime, if you desire. The app makes it very easy to add money to your Wealthfront accounts or transfer money out of Wealthfront to another institution.
There are two distinct reasons I did not give the Wealthfront app five stars. First, the app does not give users the ability to change their risk tolerance score. Users must log on to Wealthfront’s actual website to do that, which is tremendously inconvenient. Second, although I like the financial future modeling the app provides, there is no available explanation of the modeling used to make such a long term forecast. Specifically, I would like to know the assumed annual rate of return in the model as well as whether it accounts for an assumed annual pay increase or an assumed increase in the value of your home. This would all be possible by adding a simple link that explains the specifics of the assumptions and methodology behind the model used to calculate important values like your predicted net worth at retirement age. I am sure this seems like a niche request, but some more financially and data savvy users would appreciate it.
