Ratings and Reviews
Money Tracking and Cash Account (savings) Fantastic
I have been using this app for 6 months. I found it when I was looking for a high-interest savings account. Wealthfront's cash account isn't a savings account itself but it works with other established banks to offer 1.78% interest per year and is FDIC insured. I'm unsure about the exact amount insured but it's over $1 million dollars.
On top of that, you can also connect your bank accounts, credit cards and other financial services to keep track of all your money in one place. I'm not aware if it offer categories for tracking spending but it does help you determine how many years it will take you to reach your retirement goals at your current savings rate. I am saving $600/mo and apparently I should be able to retire at 60yo. It helps you establish realistic expectations. If anything, it's shown me I need a better paying job since I'm saving as much as possible at this point.
This app is my top money tracking app along with Credit Karma and Experian (for credit). I also use Robinhood, Webull and my credit card apps. I have used Mint but it feels like it isn't being supported by the developers any longer.
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.
Developer Response ,
Hi and thank you for the feedback. Please note, all of this information is available on the full website. The methodology for our model is available on the app (click on your specific goal and scroll down to Methodology). Please send an email to email@example.com for any account-specific questions. We will also share your feedback with the team. Thank you.
Simply the best place to invest
I’m relatively new to investing but Wealthfront is by far the easiest investing tool I’ve ever seen, and one that is perfect for someone in my new-to-investing position. My favorite feature is the Path tool, which gives me the confidence I need to spend my money while saving away more than enough to live the retirement of my dreams. I’m excited to see how Wealthfront continues to grow and flourish, since just in the short time I’ve been using it, it has added a number of incredible features (notably, their new Wealthfront Cash account).
UPDATE: It has been several years since I left this review and Wealthfront has remained a five-star app and service. Since reviewing, I’ve transitioned my entire financial life over to Wealthfront (with the exception of my employer-sponsored 401(k)). Wealthfront’s checking and cash management features are industry-leading, and now that they allow you to tweak your investment portfolios to suit your style, their investment suite is too. I look forward to continuing to grow my finances with Wealthfront.
