You’ve seen us talk a lot about Motif Investing. Heck, Motif portfolios are all over our site’s home page. Frankly, it’s one of the best ways we’ve found to invest our money and grow our wealth.
From Motif’s website: “Motif takes complex, expensive, cumbersome, opaque, one-size-fits-all financial products and make them intuitive, low-cost, transparent, convenient, customizable, values-based investments.”
Coming from nearly three decades of investing experience, I can safely say that many investment strategies are complex. Expensive. Cumbersome. Opaque. One-size-fits-all.
So we love it when an intuitive, low-cost, transparent, convenient, customizable, values-based platform comes along. It just makes sense, and it’s the right timing for today’s savvy investor.
Motif has been named by Forbes as a Fintech 50 company, by Fast Company as a Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Finance, and a Disrupter 50 by CNBC.
We love building portfolios that are made up of each week’s best ideas from Barron’s. The research is in – Barron’s knows their stuff and their picks regularly outperform the markets – especially the standardized benchmark of the S&P 500.
And so many of our friends, family and peers have known for years this is how I invest my money, they love the fact that now they can piggy back on my weekly hard work by investing in the same Motif portfolio that I’m creating for my own personal investing.
So have you started your Motif account yet?
If not, click here and get started. They’ll even give you a few free months of their premium BLUE service. Easy to cancel if you don’t want/need it after three months.
Setting up a Motif account now allows you to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. There are a ton of ways you can invest on the Motif platform besides just my portfolios. Motif builds other theme-based portfolios for you to consider, and you can also choose ETFs, individual stocks and even IPOs.
I talk a lot about diversification, returns, doubling your money, tax savings and growing wealthy. But you have to take the steps to obtain the tools you need to follow along. It starts with your Motif account.
What’s in it for me? Not a helluva lot, except I know that my readers are set up and ready to invest. They give me a free month of BLUE for every referral (value $19.95). That’s about it.
Already have other investment accounts? So do I. But there’s no better way to invest in the great ideas from Barron’s than through a Motif portfolio. Diversify. Invest some of your portfolio on the Motif platform and compare. Have fun with it.
Got five minutes? Let’s get started now.

Some of Motif’s most apparent disclosures:
The 1-Year Return/Return Since Inception indicates the performance of this particular motif over the last 12 months or, if the motif was created within the past 12 months, since the date the motif was created.
See how we calculate returns.
The Motif Index level represents the performance of a benchmark motif (a motif in our catalog) over time. It is set at 1000 on the date of inception of the motif. For example, a Motif Index of 1100 represents a 10% return since inception. Similarly, the change in the Index over a specified period represents the period return on the portfolio holding the same share weights as the benchmark motif. The Motif Index is a measure created and maintained by the firm, which has the discretion to change the holdings that comprise the index and to make alterations to a particular Motif Index.
Standard pricing: $9.95 total commission per motif transaction. Other fees may apply. For details on fees and commissions, please click here.
