I’ve got 99% of my investments in Betterment currently, but am looking to move to something a bit cheaper (after FeeX scores my Betterment account at a B-).
Everyone seems to be gung-ho about Vanguard, and they do seem like a great trailblazing company with good customer service and low fees, which I like. I also plan on investing most, if not all, of my money in Vanguard index funds anyways.
I recently started up an M1 Finance account just to try it out, and I really like it. There’s no trading fees (do you have to pay trading fees if you use Vanguard to buy Vanguard index funds?), they automatically rebalance, they do fractional shares, and it’s free.
Which one would you pick if you were a neophyte investor? I’m not planning on doing anything crazy - just sticking to basic index funds anyways. But M1 Finance seems like the way to go due to the fractional shares/automatic rebalancing - what am I missing here?
