What is a robo-advisory account?
Robo-advisory accounts are financial investing services that automatically curate a diversified portfolio for their clients and maintain and rebalance the portfolio over time through algorithms. These algorithms help ensure efficient trading, helping keep portfolios aligned with asset allocations.
Intuitive Investor accounts are based on a hybrid advisory model that incorporates technology with Financial Advisors.

Daily monitoring & rebalancing
Sophisticated algorithms your account allocations daily and trigger rebalancing to ensure they are always on track.
Why does daily monitoring matter?
Daily monitoring tracks the individual funds in your portfolio, looking for “portfolio drift.” This is when individual funds in your portfolio rise and fall in value, causing them to become unaligned with your goals. It allows for fluctuation within target ranges to avoid unnecessary or ineffective trading and rebalances your account only when needed.
