What's a portfolio?

Define "Portfolio"

A portfolio is a select combination of investments, often stocks or bonds that you own.

Stocks & Bonds

Stocks are shares of ownership in a business. Bonds are a debt investment where an investor loans money to a business or government for a defined period of time and interest rate.

How to Create a Portfolio

To create a portfolio, tell us your financial situation and goals. With those answers, Acorns will recommend you a mix of ETFs that will become your portfolio.

What am I investing in?

Exchange Traded Funds

ETFs for short, are made up of broad holdings of stocks or bonds. Often, these ETFs replicate an asset class or index like the S&P 500 or Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Asset Classes

Asset classes represent certain categories or classes of stocks or bonds. Each ETF represents an asset class in your portfolio ranging from Large Companies to Real Estate.

Diversification is Key

When you invest in several different asset classes, it helps to smooth out any bumps when the market changes.

Today's Top Companies

Every dollar you invest is automatically diversified over 7,000 stocks & bonds. This is all possible due to Fractional Share Ownership in our portfolio ETFs.
