Ellevest was founded in 2014. It is a roboadvisor explicitly targeting women.
Ellevest competes with many other robo advisor firms such as Betterment, Wealthfront, and Wealthsimple.
Ellevest is fueled by the sentiment that many women feel intimated by investing. Ellevest tries to use empowering words and pictures to draw women to their platform.
Morningstar builds the Ellevest portfolios. We have seen from the Morningstar’s portfolios that they love to have many asset classes.
Ellevest uses many portfolio asset classes for its portfolios. Ellevest also has many portfolios. They claim to have over a hundred.
For this reason, we decided only to benchmark a selected portion of Ellevest’s portfolios.
Here’s how we selected the portfolios.
We chose the goal of “wealth-building.” Within that goal, we chose the time frames:
Then, within each timeframe, you can select three risk levels
The timeframe tweaks the risk level very slightly.
We thus have 12 portfolios to benchmark (4 timeframes times three risk levels)
We give the portfolios a number ranging from 1 – 12, denoting their risk level. 12 is the portfolio with the most risk.
So portfolio 1 is for a timeframe of 5 years with a conservative level of risk. Portfolios 12 is for a timeframe of 20 years with an aggressive risk level.
Are you confused yet?
It gets even more confusing – hang in there.
Ellevest also has impact portfolios. These are socially responsible investing portfolios (ESG portfolios). They use very particular funds that do not have a long track record. If you want a socially responsible portfolio, we recommend checking our socially responsible investment portfolios that portfolioeinstein.com track.
You don’t need hundreds of portfolios to help your customers.
We are not (yet) tracking Ellevest’s impact portfolios.
Morningstar, which has built the Ellevest portfolios, uses a lot of asset classes.
I was already impressed by the Morningstar portfolios, and Ellevest gives off the same impression.
They come off as being highly asset allocation clever. They use the right tools for the right job.
For all the complexity that the Ellevest portfolios display, some of the portfolios are identical. For example, portfolios 5 and 7 are the same. In Ellevest, these correspond to 10 years till goal on a standard risk level and 15 years till goal on a conservative risk level. The same goes for portfolios 6 and 8. And the same with 8 and 10 and 11 and 9.
Alright, let take a look at the performance.
