If you’re not familiar with Acorns, it is an app that links with your bank account and credit cards, rounding up daily purchases and automatically investing the ‘change’ into a diversified portfolio of ETFs. The idea is to create an easy path into the stock market for younger, new investors, removing common entry barriers such as high fees and buy in prices.
