This type of account is a Discretionary Managed Account. This is an individual taxable brokerage account that Stash has full authority to manage according to a specific investment mandate. The investment team at Stash built these portfolios with the goal of optimizing risk-adjusted returns. This is achieved by utilizing the diversification benefits highlighted by modern portfolio theory. The portfolios consist of well-diversified ETFs that provide clients with broad exposure to the stocks of companies of all sizes across all industries and geographies and bonds of various issuers. The portfolios aim to optimize returns given a user’s overall risk profile. Stash will automatically manage a Client’s portfolio based on an algorithm that evaluates the Client’s risk profile and selects appropriate investments for the client. Stash does not guarantee any level of performance or that any client will avoid losses in the Client’s Stash Account(s). Any investment in securities involves the possibility of financial loss.
