HOW WE INVEST
· Diversification ·
Instead of trying to pick individual stocks, Acorns diversifies your investment across hundreds of the most widely held U.S. and international companies, corporate bonds, government bonds, and real estate. By answering just a handful of questions about yourself, our proprietary technology can match you with a portfolio that is appropriately diversified for your goals and built to help smooth out the ride as stock prices fluctuate.
· Automatic Rebalancing ·
Acorns automatically rebalances your portfolio to mitigate risk and optimize returns. This means we keep your account in a target mix of stocks and bonds by buying more when they are cheaper and less when they are more expensive. Buy low, sell high.

“If you set aside just $5 every couple of days, you would have set aside over a $1000 in a year.” - ABC World News Tonight 
“You can get started in minutes and use it to create a reasonably well-designed portfolio that allows you to add as little as $5 at a time.” - The New York Times 
"This could prove to be an inexpensive way of introducing young people to the world of investing at ages for which compound interest can become a powerful tool." -Bloomberg Businessweek 
"Young people may not have enough assets to meet the minimum requirements of big financial houses... With Acorns, there are no minimums. There are also none of the commissions that can render investing in small doses prohibitively expensive." -TIME
