Who we are:

We are a financial technology company that recognizes America’s finances are in trouble. Sadly, the financial services industry oftentimes does more to perpetuate the problem than to solve it. Unlike most financial companies, Questis knows that software can help engage and solve personal finance problems. But we also recognize that people are an important piece in the process! Using both people and algorithms, Questis can keep people constantly engaged, make consistent improvements, and provide people with better financial outcomes through their lives.

Our advice comes from industry recognized financial planning practices. Questis deploys an evidence-based investment philosophy with an emphasis on academic research, process, and time-tested data. Our investment portfolios are structured around certain factors, which are sensible, backed by data, and cost-effective to provide investors a more positive experience.

Who we aren’t:

We are not insurance salesmen or traditional advisors, and we don’t wear suits. Our advice comes from industry recognized financial planning practices. We don’t push products and we are not commission based.
