Our last PITCH finalist is WiseBanyan, the world's first free financial advisor.
By Betsy Mikel (Editor, Women 2.0)
Most agree that financial advisory fees are too high. Fees now seem outdated considering how technology allows advisors to create, invest, and manage multiple portfolios faster than ever before.
WiseBanyan has built the leanest technology-driven financial advisor. This means we can offer the same investment portfolios as a traditional advisor, but never at your expense.
