Investment approach

Both Clover and Stockspot use ETFs to construct portfolios, which we believe is the smartest way to invest. However, there are differences in the investment philosophy and how the portfolios are put together.

For example, Clover does not invest in gold (i.e. buy and hold gold). Gold is not a productive asset and does not generate economic growth. Many people choose not to invest in gold because it is a controversial investment.
