Your clients can invest in thousands of companies across the world.
The Betterment core portfolio can benefit from growth in both developed and emerging markets, so you're less exposed to the economy of any one country.
U.S. Total Stock Market
US Total Stock Market contains broad exposure to the historically strong long-term growth of the U.S. economy.
U.S. Large-Cap Value Stocks
US Large-Cap Value stocks overlap with the U.S. Total Stock Market, but are included to tilt the portfolio toward large size companies with low price-to-earnings ratios.
U.S. Mid-Cap Value Stocks
U.S. Mid-Cap Value stocks overlap with the U.S. Total Stock Market, but are included to tilt the portfolio toward medium size companies with low price-to-earnings ratios.
U.S. Small-Cap Value Stocks
U.S. Small-Cap Value stocks overlap with the US Total Stock Market, but are included to tilt the portfolio toward small size companies with low price-to-earnings ratios.
International Developed Stocks
Developed Markets stocks provide exposure to a diverse set of companies from international developed economies including the UK, Europe, Japan, and others.
Emerging Market Stocks
Emerging Markets provide higher return potential and diversification, but they come with higher risk compared to U.S. or International Developed stocks.
This extremely low-risk asset class is a cash alternative that generates nominal benefit through interest payments, and de-risks the portfolio at safer allocations.
Inflation Protected Bonds
This allocation serves to insulate a part of the portfolio from the depreciating effects of inflation while also having historically low correlation with other asset classes.
U.S. High Quality or Municipal Bonds
For fixed income with slightly higher risk and returns than U.S. Treasuries, taxable accounts use Municipals and IRA and 401(k) accounts use U.S. High Quality bonds.
U.S. Corporate Bonds
Corporate bonds generally offer attractive yields and opportunity for capital appreciation to compensate investors for default risk.
International Bonds have high credit quality and provide interest rate diversification for a bond portfolio, resulting in higher risk-adjusted returns.
Emerging Markets Bonds
Emerging Markets Bonds are dollar-denominated bonds issued by governments with economies that are rapidly growing and industrializing.
