Global Diversification, Maximum Efficiency

Our portfolio is maximally diversified, and comprises low-cost, liquid, index-tracking, exchange-traded funds, or ETFs. We use tax-efficient algorithms and automate optimal behavior to maximize your ability to grow your money.

An Optimal Allocation Tailored for You

When you deposit money with mPower, every dollar is seamlessly invested in up to 12 different asset classes, optimized for your desired goals and risk tolerance.

Stock and bond ETFs are weighted to provide a progressively increasing amount of risk and potential return. Lower risk portfolios have more short-term government-backed bonds and less volatile stocks. As you move up the allocation spectrum, we introduce bonds and stocks with higher risk but higher potential returns.
