Our Rich Journey – Vanguard vs Best Investing Apps (M1, Betterment & Acorns) | See Our Results With Real Investments: This video is a continuation of our robo-advisor videos. About six months ago, we explained that we wanted to compare robo-advisor performances because we found the information available online (about robo-advisor performance) wasn’t very straightforward. So, we enlisted the help of our viewers and asked them which robo-advisors they wanted us to review. The results came in and the top robo-advisors that we were asked to review were: M1 Finance, Betterment, & Acorns. So – that’s exactly what we did! Six months ago, we invested $1,000 into each robo-advisor and then invested $10 more each week into each roboadvisor. In the end, we invested a total of $1,260 into each roboadvisor. And then we compared their performance. Check out this video to see which robo-advisor resulted in the biggest return on our investment AND see how they compared to Vanguard investments (VOO, VTI, and VTSAX)!
