Robo-Advisor Betterment Moves Into Crypto Via Makara Acquisition

Digital wealth management platform Betterment has agreed to purchase automated cryptocurrency portfolio provider Makara for an undisclosed price.

  • “Makara is to crypto today what we are to traditional investing, since pioneering robo-investing a decade ago,” says Betterment CEO Sarah Levy. As Betterment allows customers easy investment in low-cost, professionally-constructed equity portfolios, Makara offers the same for cryptocurrency.
  • Makara is among the first crypto robo-advisors to be registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Customers are able to choose from a set of “baskets” of assets based on their risk appetite. The company launched services last June with a waiting list of 20,000 customers.
  • Betterment is one of the largest robo-advisors in the world, managing $26.8 billion in assets for 615,000 individual clients.
  • Terms for the deal were not disclosed.
