The robo-adviser connects consumers with the investing resources of Goldman Sachs through portfolio models designed by the company’s Investment Strategy Group at a minimum account balance of $1000. It charges an annual advisory fee of 0.35 percent for trade commissions, transfer fees, daily monitoring, rebalancing and management. 

“We are excited to deliver our investment acumen and advice to a wider audience. Our research shows that many consumers find investing to be intimidating or don’t have the time to spend on it,” said Andrea Finan, head of digital investing at Goldman Sachs.
