To see a comparison of robo advisor portfolios see our article Robo Advisor Performance. This is the article where we compare the performance of various robo advisors.
There seems to be a trend in the robo advisor portfolios. They are all highly diversified. They use asset classes not usually seen as much in other portfolios.
The Wealthfront portfolios include the use of emerging market bonds. They also use real estate (REITs), as a distinct asset class. Betterment, on the other hand, does not allocate to REITs specifically.
Wealthfront also makes heavy use of corporate bonds – a favorite of Burton Malkiel. See Burton Malkiel Portfolio: No Random Returns Here.
This creates a setup for potential outperformance in that they can rebalance their way to higher returns.
