Acorns

This app takes spare pennies and makes you an investment king.

AcornsStocks, mutual funds, investment portfolio: these are all very scary words to us (even though the Stim office just brought a broker in to explain this terminology to us, it’s not any less intimidating). But this new app, called Acorn, takes our pennies (literally, just the pennies) and does most of the work for us. The investment app for iOS and Android takes spare change (basically, it┬árounds up to the nearest dollar every time you use a linked credit or debit card) and invests it into a diversified portfolio of financial instruments. It’s as easy as that…we hope. Million dollar club for the lazy, here we come!
