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. Personal Capital is our top choice for portfolio management due to the way the firm’s advanced technology effectively manages risk and taxes.

New and Notable:

  • Personal Capital is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Empower Retirement, a retirement services provider, as of August 2020.
  • The Recession Simulator, which allows Americans to illustrate the effect historical recessions would have had on their investments, was introduced in June 2020.
  • Personal Capital Cash is a cash management service for U.S. residents and citizens with no minimum balance requirements. Investing clients receive a higher rate of interest.

Capital One just bought my favorite flight insurance program ‘Freebird’

MSN has partnered with The Points Guy for our coverage of credit card products. MSN and The Points Guy may receive a commission from card issuers.

Last summer, my sister ended up with a $1,200 Delta First class ticket for the low cost of $19 because I paid for Freebird flight protection. I absolutely loved the protection the service offered for domestic itineraries and usually bought it for every low-cost carrier flight.

However, earlier this year with coronavirus wrecking havoc on the aviation industry, Freebird stopped offering its protection to the public as its business model was no longer sustainable with such unpredictability. That certainly doesn’t mean its technology is worthless and Capital One obviously thinks the same thing.

Earlier this week, Skift reported that Capital One acquired Freebird’s flight disruption technology and most of its staff are now working for Capital One.

Capital One has announced that it’s cutting credit limits for some of its cardholders. While credit card companies generally avoid doing this, they are legally allowed to cut credit limits at their discretion, and it’s common during economic downturns. The high unemployment rate and expiration of the additional $600 per week in unemployment benefits were likely major factors in Capital One’s decision.

Credit card companies aren’t legally required to notify you before cutting your credit limit, unless the change was due to adverse information on your credit report. Since that doesn’t apply here, it’s important to know how you can find out on your own.
