With your money membership, Ellevest can create and manage a personalized investment portfolio for you. It includes a gender-aware investment algorithm that factors in important realities like pay gaps, career breaks, and average lifespans.
You spend about 5 minutes and answer some questions about your money, life and career. Based on that info, Ellevest recommends a diversified portfolio of low cost ETFs and how much they think you should invest to give you the best chance of reaching your goal, and then Ellevest automatically adjust your investment portfolio as you get closer to your goal date to help you stay on track. But it’s your money, and you can make changes any time you want.
You can choose to positively impact your future, the world, and other women through investing a portion of your money in Impact Portfolios.
the only investment tool built by women, for women
Membership at Ellevest comes with two FDIC-insured bank accounts (save and spend) and a World Debit Mastercard**.
Your Spend account is attached to your Ellevest debit card. Your Ellevest Save account is a safe, easy-to-access account that’s separate from your spending money. It's a great place to start an emergency fund.
You also have an opportunity to save sooner with Roundup. If you activate Roundup, every time you buy something with your Ellevest debit card, you’ll automatically transfer the change (up to the nearest dollar) from your Spend account into your Save account***.
