Looking to move away from the black-box model of human brokerage. Between all the sites like Betterment, Wealthfront, etc...what do you use and why?

      Most all my funds are in Vanguard right now, actually.

    Not a single robo advisor outperformed SP500. Putting all your money in $SPY will beat any rob advisor even without tax loss harvesting, which you can easily do as well by moving underwater lots to any other SP500 tracking ETF.

    • Just SP500 is a risky one because it tracks 500 of the highly valued (possibly overvalued) companies in the US. When a correction happens, SP 500 will lose more than a Total Stock Market Index fund.

    Umm, you have that inverted...

    Robo-investors use the “black-box model” approach.

      Maybe. At least they’re consistent and available at all times.

    Schwab is “free” but kinda weird since it will hold ~7% in cash. If you’d hold cash anyway it’s a good option.
