WHAT AM I INVESTING IN?
Acorns expert-built portfolios contain Exchange Traded Funds, or ETFs. They're like baskets of different investments, including stocks and/or bonds, and come with benefits like diversification, lower costs, and potential tax efficiency.

Diversification means your investments are exposed to a broad range of stocks, bonds, or both — possibly over 7,000! This can help reduce your risk, compared to trading individual stocks.
When you invest in Acorns ETF portfolios, there’s a good chance a portion of your investment is in some of the world’s largest and most successful companies, including names like Apple, Amazon, Google, and Berkshire Hathaway.
Mentions of individual top companies in reference to possible ETF holdings only, not as a recommendation to buy or sell any specific security.
Acorns diversified portfolios are built by experts and include ETFs managed by pros at the world’s top investment firms like Vanguard and BlackRock.
Your Potential is a hypothetical tool that illustrates, how factors such as Recurring Investments (amount and frequency), Round-Ups® investments, Smart Deposit investments, and compound returns may impact the long-term value of an Acorns Account. The tool uses a 6% hypothetical rate of return and hypothetical age range dependent on age band selected by the user. Compounding is the process in which an asset’s earnings are reinvested to generate additional earnings over time. Acorns clients may not experience compound returns and investment results will vary based on market volatility and fluctuating prices.
Money doesn’t grow on trees. But with compound returns, money can grow on itself. It’s a long-term investing principle foundational to how Acorns can work for you.
