Unfortunately, that’s not what
most of us are feeling.
For whatever reason, those who have chosen to work around money all seem to want more of it for themselves.
Some by stealing, but most by doing totally legal (though unsavory) things like selling high commission products, charging high fees, or flat out hiding the way they make money off of you.
So we started Altruist.
We want people who have chosen great advisors to have a great experience.
We’re going to help tens of millions of people by helping thousands of financial professionals.
Our software makes advisors more efficient and gives them the freedom to charge less. This means you’ll pay less and make more.
Together, we’re going to fix the broken
parts of finance and investing.
