Financial goal setting with an advisor
Wealthsimple builds portfolios of assets that are broadly diversified across markets, are expected to perform well over the long-term, keep fees low, and don't try to time the market. For the vast majority of people, we believe this is the best way to invest in public stock and bond markets. It is really hard to outperform the market, and the data shows that very few active managers do it consistently, especially once you factor in their fees. And, even if some managers do consistently outperform the market, it's really hard to predict in advance which ones will.
The most important determinant of wealth for investors is their savings rate and their ability to stick with an investment strategy. That’s why we provide a technology experience that is designed to help you invest long-term, advisors who are here to answer questions and help you stick to your plan, and a variety of portfolio themes that align with your values and goals.
Our strong belief is that financial assets are an excellent bet to outperform cash, and that returns will roughly correlate with the riskiness of the portfolio overall. Over long time horizons, a good rule of thumb is that our riskiest portfolios earn about 4–5% returns over the rate of inflation and that less risky portfolios will earn slightly less. A wide range of outcomes are possible in any year, but you should be confident that, in the long run, continually saving and investing in low-cost diversified portfolios is a good way to build wealth. When you create an account and are matched with a portfolio, you’ll be able to view your personal projection based on the level of risk in your portfolio and your deposits. You can find out more about our expected range of returns here.
Ultimately, the best portfolio for you is one you can stick to, and keep investing in through market ups and downs. That’s what makes investors successful in the long term. To match you with the right portfolio, we will ask you a few questions, like what you’re saving for, when you’re going to need the money, and how comfortable with portfolio fluctuations you are. Your portfolio will be personalized to your situation, but in general the longer you have to invest, the more risk you can take in your portfolio as you will have plenty of time to make up for any short-term losses.
