Covestor is a pioneer in online investing. Covestor offers a variety of portfolios, including the Covestor Smart Beta portfolios, which are managed by Covestor's Chief Investment Officer and Investment Management team.

Covestor Smart Beta portfolios are designed to provide systematic exposure to a fundamental factor or combination of factors. Portfolios are constructed using a rules-based approach and offered at a relatively low cost.
