Acorns Investing App Review and F.A.Q.

Invest your spare change

Anyone can grow wealth.

I am not going to lie. Acorns is not my favorite on this list. Not even close. However, that does NOT mean that I do not like it. Acorns in a great platform and one of the first of its kind as well. There is a good chance you may have actually heard of it already. It is very simple and easy to use and will get you modest returns. You see, Acorns has about five or so different ETFs you can choose from. (No individual stocks with this app) These ETFs are arranged in the form of risk tolerance. They have an aggressive mix, a modest mix, a conservative mix, and a couple others in between. I usually keep all my investments in the aggressive mix in this platform as I feel they are all pretty safe compered to one another. But, that is just my opinion.

 

 

One of the other really cool aspects of this program is that you can set it up where it rounds up your purchases with your credit or debit card. This means that if your total comes to $37.89 for example, it will round the total up to $38 even and then Acorns will deposit that extra $0.11 into your Acorns investment portfolio. Believe me when I say that this can add up EXTREMELY quickly! You can also set recurring deposits or even one time deposits here and there as you please. There are multiple ways to use this platforms and it is extremely user friendly.

 

I use Acorns like a glorified savings account. You are not going to get really rich off this app but it is a great way to start setting aside a little bit of profit you start pulling from the programs above. You do not even have to wait that long if you don’t want to. You can go ahead and download the app now,  and start playing around with it and maybe start using a little out of pocket money to start your portfolio even stronger, or just use the roundup feature. It is completely up to you

What’s a portfolio?

Define “Portfolio”

A portfolio is a select combination of investments, often stocks or bonds that you own.

Stocks & Bonds

Stocks are shares of ownership in a business. Bonds are a debt investment where an investor loans money to a business or government for a defined period of time and interest rate.

How to Create a Portfolio

To create a portfolio, tell us your financial situation and goals. With those answers, Acorns will recommend you a mix of ETFs that will become your portfolio.

What am I investing in?

Exchange Traded Funds

ETFs for short, are made up of broad holdings of stocks or bonds. Often, these ETFs replicate an asset class or index like the S&P 500 or Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Asset Classes

Asset classes represent certain categories or classes of stocks or bonds. Each ETF represents an asset class in your portfolio ranging from Large Companies to Real Estate.

Find and read our ETF prospectuses here.

Diversification is Key

When you invest in several different asset classes, it helps to smooth out any bumps when the market changes.

Today’s Top Companies

Every dollar you invest is automatically diversified over 7,000 stocks & bonds. This is all possible due to Fractional Share Ownership in our portfolio ETFs.

  1. Dan that sounds good will have to find a way to get started. when some body tells me to down load some thing, that tells me I don’t know how so can’t do it. I keep trying to do things but just don’t get the job done. I have tried a couple of things in the last month and run into the snag that says down load it. Or they wanted bit coin and I still don’t have any that I can get my hands on to use.
