Ratings and Reviews
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.
Intuitive and accessible for hands-off investors
Will it make more profit out of your investment than another retirement account or finance institution? Probably yes... Maybe not...
But that’s not the point. If you’re not a multi-millionaire but you work hard for your money and don’t have the time maximize your earnings by doing extensive market research, this is an incredible product. You can pay someone to try to beat the market for you and I’ll put that money towards tax-loss harvesting, a diverse and constantly evolving portfolio of assets, auto-deposits, credit/debt tracking, an effortless interface, and a clear vision of my finances and risk tolerance for separate accounts. All in seconds at my fingertips.
This app & investment tool is all you need to optimize your income. Do not let your money sit in a bank account. Do not give it away by letting someone less competent manage it for you. Using Wealthfront to open a Roth IRA & savings account as a 25 year old was probably the single best financial decision I have made. I’ve made huge gains in my portfolio since I started and I love being able to analyze my investment as it develops.
I can’t wait to see what tools they come out with in the future. 5 stars for Wealthfront.
Simplicity for any level investor
I work with a CFP, I manage a stock and ETF account with scottrade, and have been using wealthfront for 18 months now. This is by far the easiest and now most lucrative of the 3, and I have yet to crest over $500 in fees. And once I do, they have about $5k in harvested losses that my cfp nor myself would have done because well, we have day jobs. So whatever fees end up going to wealthfront, which are minuscule, will easily be covered by their automated loss harvesting. The app is dirt easy, you can link other accounts and real estate holdings, etc. I can't recommend this enough to anyone, regardless of understanding of investing or retirement planning. These guys hit all the bases and their fees finance themselves with the tax loss harvesting. I.E. this is cheaper than free!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
