At Chestnut Investment Advisory we also offer a unique way of investing called $ymbil.  $ymbil is a self-motivated online investment platform that assesses your investment risk profile and offers recommendations for a risk-appropriate managed approach.

$ymbil is for all types of investors from novice investors opening their first account with small dollars to the experienced investor who wants a simple, quick, and easy way to invest capital.  $ymbil’s questionnaire places you into 1 of 5 portfolios based on age, investment goals, time horizon, and risk tolerance.  Everything entered into the $ymbil questionnaire is dynamic which allows a proprietary algorithm designed to help make the investment decisions.  The sign-up process takes less than ten minutes and the minimum investment is only $500.

The 5 different portfolios range from conservative with more investments in bonds for income, then more income & growth, to more growth & income, moving towards a more aggressive stance would be more in equities for growth and your most aggressive portfolio would be more heavily invested in equities or stocks for aggressive growth.
