Personal Capital announced it is now managing in excess of $500 million of investment assets for its clients – a striking growth rate of 400% over the past year. Personal Capital is a new type of financial advisor, pioneering digital wealth management. “Our clients want financial advice that is both digital and personal. Digital via our web and mobile apps. Personal via our financial advisors,” said CEO Bill Harris.
Personal Capital investment clients are mostly affluent working households, progressing in their careers and building wealth. Some are graduating from do-it-yourself investing as their lives become busier and their finances more complex, while others are abandoning old-style brokers who sell products rather than offering conflict-free advice.
