Are you going to move your investments since Betterment is about to increase the fees?

Boy, I hope this will encourage the folks who should never have opened accounts there to move them. I'm speaking mainly of newbie investors who do not benefit from tax loss harvesting. Works for MMM, but not so much for folks just starting out.

Despite mathematically not being the best option, my SO loves it.

I've tried to get her on the Vanguard train, but she likes the Betterment app, allocation slider, and she's been with them since 2014.
