This provides investors with unprecedented access to a top-performing portfolio, the freedom to invest it with whomever they want, and the objectivity needed to reduce fees and diversify smartly.
What they think makes them better: Plantly’s financial engine is designed from the ground up to provide investors with an unprecedented quality of portfolios as well as never-before seen information about how each plan may perform in the future.
