Overview of the Classic portfolio
Diversified and built for growth
Your portfolio contains more varied geographic exposures, lower volatility stocks (which tend to have equal or better returns than high-risk stocks), and riskier government bonds and gold. By being more diversified, it’s designed to perform better during downturns.
No need to worry about choosing the most tax-efficient investments yourself. We automatically choose tax-optimized ETFs that pay off when it’s time to file your return.
We’ll place you in a portfolio that matches your needs — from a conservative high-interest option all the way to high-growth, equity-heavy.
Performance over time
Designed for investors who don’t plan to withdraw in the next 9+ years. If you can bear fluctuations and understand that there might be short-term periods of poor performance, this portfolio could be for you.

See the big picture
Riskier portfolios are prone to swings in the short-term, but tend to have higher expected returns in the long run. No matter what your risk level, it’s typically best to stay invested over time.

Your money is always working hard
Portfolios are automatically rebalanced based on your deposits, withdrawals, or changes in your overall goals to ensure that your asset allocation stays consistent.
ETFs are optimized based on your tax situation and the type of account you’re invested in. We also negotiate with ETF providers on your behalf to get discounts.
We’ll keep track of your dividends, and immediately reinvest them to purchase the ETFs that are underweight in your portfolio.
