TD Ameritrade Personalized Portfolios Strive for Perfection
On the heels of Essential and Selective robo-advisory portfolios, TD Ameritrade launches Personalized Portfolios, for wealthier clients.
Answering the call for greater human touch and more investment options than the typical digital wealth management robo-advisor, TD Ameritrade’s Personalized Portfolios seeks perfection. Just short of an independent financial advisor, TD Ameritrade Personalized Portfolios targets wealthier clientele than the typical robo-advisor, with a promise of greater services.
TD Ameritrade Includes a Gamut of Digital Robo-Advisory Options
In an attempt to meet all client needs, TD Ameritrade offers three digital, robo-advisor choices.
The basic TD Ameritrade Essential Portfolios Robo-advisor provides five goal-oriented ETF portfolios for a competitive 0.30% management fee and a $5,000 investment minimum or a $500 minimum with automatic deposit set up. And, you can chat with a financial consultant online or inhouse.
Next, the TD Ameritrade Selective Portfolios Robo-advisor offers more goal-oriented portfolios comprised of ETFs and mutual funds targeting a variety of risk preferences. This level requires a minimum of $25,000 with fees that vary by portfolio and investment amount. Like Essential Portfolios, you can talk with a financial consultant online or inhouse.
The new Personalized Portfolios gives you goal planning, a professionally managed portfolio tailored to your individual finances, a dedicated financial consultant, tax loss harvesting and more. Your investment recommendations are made in conjunction with your dedicated financial consultant and Morningstar Investment Management professionals. With a $250,000 minimum, this option is competitive with Personal Capital and charges a 0.90% (or less, depending on portfolio) management fee. Although, unlike TD Ameritrade, all the Personal Capital advisors are licensed Certified Financial Planners.
