Guided Wealth Portfolio

Automated Investing Backed With Personalized Service

Guided Wealth Portfolios combine easy-to-use technology with the personal financial consultation service of our DECU Investment & Retirement Services team. Unlike most digital investing solutions, or robo advisors, who don’t include a dedicated financial advisor relationship, our digital investing solution guides you through the process from start to finish.

Our online investment platform combines the benefits of a personal financial advisor with sophisticated technology to help you invest in your future:

  • Advisors on call
  • Low initial investment
  • Competitive rates

Personalized Solutions

We’ll create an investment allocation road-map based on your goals, risk preferences and investing timeline to help you pursue your objectives. Your road-map is also customized for your specific stage in life, and will change according to your needs.

  • Ongoing planning, service, and advice.
  • Investment road-map designed just for you
  • Access to a dedicated financial advisor

Hi-Tech, Low-Cost Advanced Wealth Management

Just $5,000 in investable assets opens your low management fee account, and we’ll allocate your assets in a tax-efficient manner, evaluating the tax impact of each trade before it goes though.

  • Low management fees
  • Low initial investment minimums
  • Tax-efficient investing

Intuitive, Intelligent Investing

Your self-directed investing process is made fast and easy with the secure technology that powers DECU’s Guided Wealth Portfolios. Get access to a personal portal and track your activity, open new accounts, invest online, see your portfolio and make updates to your accounts in all one place:
