Hey 🐠 - I’m new to investing and would like to set up a robo-advisor account. My investment timeframe is ~5 years (I’m on a visa, so I don’t want all my savings tied to a retirement account). Do you have any brokerage recommendations? I am looking at Vanguard’s robo offering, but it seems to be very retirement-focused.

Why would you pay for a roboadviser when you can just put it in a broad market ETF using the same formula they would? Honestly, you could just put it in VTI and get the same results or better.

I’m curious - what situation makes paying a robo-advisor fee more advantageous than just buying a VTI-type fund directly?
