So I put some funds in with Wealthsimple under a conservative profile as they deemed fit for me, and I put in some funds into Freetrade for my own research, study, and buy approach pleasure. So far, my own investments are ahead, while the funds in Wealthsimple are actually in decline. Makes me wonder if I should’ve just managed the entire thing myself. The idea of entrusting my funds with these firms is that they should know better than I, me thinks. Then another part of me thinks maybe managed funds are better off in the long game.
What are you guys’ experience with managing your own portfolio versus entrusting it to these managed funds apps?
