Understanding your potential robo-advisor fees

With some of the lowest fees in the industry, the annual advisory fee for Automated Investor covers all transactions, trades, transfers, rebalancing, advice and account administration. That means you won't pay any additional fees when securities are bought or sold.

Here you can experiment with our robo-advisor fees calculator and see what your estimated fees will be based upon the amount of money you invest. 

As with any investment in exchange traded funds (ETFs),2 there can be additional operating expenses for ETFs, which are reflected in the daily pricing of the fund.
