Your Value: Human Insight with Robo Tech
Some advisors, including us, use automated advisor-like services to leverage leading technology. However, having a licensed, human advisor can add great additional value such as overseeing your portfolio and understanding your story. A robot cannot answer specific answers unique to your situation.
Betterment is an excellent robo-advisor. We actually use them for managing client investment accounts coupled with licensed human advisor oversight. One great feature is no minimum investment and automatic rebalancing with asset allocation based on your goals and time horizon.
If the interest rate in your savings account is less than the one on your car payment, it would be better to pay off the car. If your interest rate is less than inflation (about 3%), you may want to consider investing in a conservative to moderate ETF portolio to help fight inflation. If your car payment has an interest rate of less than about 3%, you may be better off investing it in that ETF portfolio as the input from the investment could be greater than the output in interest on the car payment.
The right answer is immediately, even if it's a little to start. Inflation is constantly eating away at cash value. Starting young, you can leverage compounding returns over time. A great way to start is with an ETF portfolio that allows no minimum contributions.
A conservative ETF portfolio in an individual taxable account is a great and low-risk way to go. This can generate bond interest and stock dividends while leaving your principal liquid for quick and easy access. Keeping your funds in cash through a checking or savings account that has a lower return than inflation means you are for sure losing value every year.
