The Robo Advisors Have Landed – Don’t Be Scared.


Robo Advisors help investors create complete ETF portfolios online, with very reasonable fees. For example, based on a $100,000 investment portfolio the annual fees would range from $360 to $800 (.36-.80%) depending on the robo advisor selected. Investors will also pay the underlying Management Expenses of the ETFs. Human advice is also available.

Two Active ManagersĀ 

Here are two active managers that we Intelligent Indexers consider to be “the good guys and gals”. Click on the Investment Company name to go to their site.

Visit Mawer Investments

The Mawer Mantra is “Be Boring. Make Money”. That’s music to the ears of many no-nonsense indexers. They believe in a simple buy and hold value based investment approach. They offer a comprehensive Balanced Portfolio for a management expense ratio of .94%. At times, they certainly can provide or create alpha. Minimums may apply.

Visit Steadyhand

OK, I love the cheeky claim of Steadyhand that they are not Indexers but Undexers. They believe in their style of active management, but at the core they offer a globally diversified balanced portfolio for a management expense ratio of 1.34%. They have those more reasonable fee structures to go along with sensible asset allocation. Minimums may apply.
