What are the risks to Automated Investor?

Robo-investing, including Automated Investor, comes with investing risk. As with any investment, you’ll experience ups and downs in the market that will be reflected in your account value.

There may be some limitations if you want to access your money immediately. Automated Investor should not be a replacement for a cash reserve or emergency fund. Requests to withdraw cash could take two to three business days to complete and to maintain your Automated Investor service, you’ll need to keep at least $1,000 in your account.

Like any robo-advisor, Automated Investor is dependent on technology and utility providers. The service could be impacted by issues and outages at both our site and 3rd party provider sites, such as power outages, software and system issues, cyber attacks or other internet related failures. For more information, please refer to the Automated Investor Investment Advisory Agreement.
