Great for Viewing the BIG Picture
The categories and charts are nice. I also like the real time updating with everything all in one place. Sure beats going multiple sites with multiple logins.
The above being said I do have a couple concerns:
First, the app doesn't show running cost basis, with dividend reinvestment. Like most, I like cost basis information because it translates into showing gains and losses from the purchase date. This is a big hole in the software. If my individual brokerage accounts can show running cost basis, it seems logical that the same information can be imported into PC. This functionality would be a game changer.
Second, the incessant calls from the various layers of assistants and advisors at PC is too much at best, and downright annoying at worst. I also don't love the thought that PC can view your data and hence know who to call and who not to waste their time with. Kind of like a "light" spy agency. We all know this software is given out for free to generate leads but the approach is a little cheesy and overcooked. It didn't help that when I did finally accept the call with the PC advisor that the background noise sounded like a scene right out of the movie Boiler Room!
Love this app!
I'm big into tracking my money and personal finance is the best app/website for that. You can see over time how your investments and net worth has grown and easily set goals for yourself. I haven't used the portfolio help yet but I think it's awesome that it's offered. The only downside is you can't change the dates on transactions. We bought a house so we were moving a lot of money around from different places for the down payment. Because of this it would show up in one account before it had moved from the other and made the net worth got up then back down since it was multiple days. Outside of changing transaction days there's not much that can be made better!
Still a lot of services offered free
The business model of Personal Capital is to become your wealth advisor. If you are more of a DIY person, you can still get a lot of use out of the website and app. It will help you look at your assets, assuming they are properly categorized to see if they are in line with their ideal balanced model of risk and reward. If your assets are not categorized, you can help the service by providing a similar asset. For example, my employer's 401k program has some options that Personal Capital can't recognize, but looking into the fund descriptions or goals, I can choose something similar. Overall a great service.
