Acorns helps you proactively invest. They round up each of your transactions to the nearest dollar, and invest the change into a diversified portfolio. Simply connect a credit card, or debit card and a checking account, and tell them about yourself. Their mission is to look after the financial best interests of the up-and-coming, beginning with the empowering step of micro-investing. By ‘upand-coming,’ they mean anyone working hard today, striving for a better future.
