Wealthfront vs Betterment - A Plebian's Perspecitve - Nine Month Update

Well, we're just past 9 months into this experiment and things are going well. It helps that the markets are at an all-time high, but the diversification helps with growth overall so my eggs aren't all in one basket. Here's where I stand today:

Wealthfront Progress

Pretty darn good! 20.8% weighted return is pretty awesome. Again, this is aided by the market hike as of late, but I couldn't be happier.

Betterment Progress

Not bad! It's clearly lagging behind a bit, but still very good. At the 12 month mark, I'll decide if I want to keep both accounts or consolidate to one account.


Nothing significant changed at this point. I still think I prefer Wealthfront to Betterment, but both are quality services. If you find my information helpful, I would appreciate the referrals for either Wealthfront or Betterment.
