In retirement, are you a DIY investor or do you prefer the help of a professional? Or maybe you take the middle ground, tapping the services of a “robo-advisor.” (I’m DIY, but thinking it might be time to graduate to a robo.) At their most basic, robos provide automated portfolio construction and management at a lower cost than human advisors -- annual fees of roughly 0.36% of investable assets vs. 1.04% for traditional advice, according to a MONEY analysis. For some investors, the comprehensive advice of a dedicated human is worth every penny. But for others, robos might be a good way to make sure your portfolio is aligned with your retirement goals. Check out MONEY’s new robo ranking in today’s edition.

Best wishes,
