Wealthfront invests your money all at once. The benefit of investing in a portfolio of relatively uncorrelated asset classes is that when one asset class is up, it’s likely others are down. Therefore, the timing of when you invest is relatively unimportant.Vanguard published a white paper on dollar cost averaging for a diversified portfolio and came to the same conclusion.
If you prefer to dollar cost average, we’ve made it convenient for you to schedule deposits into your Wealthfront account via bank transfer (ACH). To set-up a scheduled deposit, log in and click the “Add Funds” button.
