Personal Capital Review 2020

First of all, we must note that Personal Capital does not want to be classified as a robo-advisory and would prefer to be considered a digital asset management service that also includes personalized advice from financial planners. That said, the company was one of the first to put tools in investor’s hands and automate elements of portfolio management.
