Why QuietGrowth

QuietGrowth is an automated, online investment management service. We manage your investments to achieve optimised returns, for a low fee. We are the most advanced online investment adviser in Australia.

We manage, with a long-term perspective, a risk-optimised and diversified portfolio of ETFs having low expense ratios, for our clients. You can invest with us in Individual, Joint, SMSF, and Trust accounts.

Our mission is to provide the access to wise investing to all, through knowledge, technology and transparency.

We offer a portfolio customised to the risk tolerance of our client. After knowing the risk profile of our client by asking few questions, we suggest and facilitate long-term investing in a customised global portfolio of eight specific low-cost passive ETFs, across various asset classes, through our website.

We offer online what a high-quality wealth manager, who has the best interests of her customers, provides in terms of creating a customised portfolio mix for long-term investing. However, we do it for a low fee. Moreover, our service is available to those who do not have sufficient investible money that would qualify them to access the services of a high-quality wealth manager.

QuietGrowth service in Australia is available to retail investors (as defined by the Corporations Act 2001), including individual investors, retail brokers (who act at the direction of these individuals), managed accounts (whereby the account manager makes the buy and sell decisions for the individual), and investment clubs (groups of people who pool their money to make investment).

The salient features of our personalised wealth management service are:
  • Client gains exposure to eight specific low-cost passive ETF investments selected and managed by a dedicated team.
  • Utmost client interest with no conflict-of-interest on part of QuietGrowth.
  • No hidden charges with a stress on transparency and cost-efficiency.
  • Multiple risk-portfolios that enable a goal-based investment program.
  • Legal and beneficial ownership, and ultimate control of the underlying investments remain with the client, enabling the client with greater security.

Top robo-advice solution in Australia

At present, clients using a typical wealth management service incur high fees, ranging from 1.5% to 3% of the portfolio size per annum. Moreover, high-quality wealth managers do not serve clients with lower investible assets, with many highly-skilled portfolio managers expecting to manage at least one million dollars from each client. Even if a client has access to a high-quality wealth management service, the probability of higher risk-adjusted returns over the long-term compared to a basket of broad-range market-indices, net-of-fees, is low.

The alternative is do-it-yourself investing. But it is time-consuming because of the need to conduct extensive research, is difficult because one requires high cognitive skills, and hence, often results in sub-optimal risk-adjusted portfolio returns. This is leading to a lower wealth accumulation over the long-term for most of the clients.

To address this problem, our highly-skilled investment and engineering teams have built a scalable solution that automates the delivery of personalised investment advice to the client and the management of the funds invested by the client using interactive interfaces and algorithms. This enables us to provide a high-quality online investment management service for a low fee. This allows us to provide access to our service to those who can invest as low as $2,000 for the long term.

Investors across the world have started to benefit from this value proposition. This service is becoming popular as "robo-advice" across the world. Serving clients since August 2015, we are the leading robo-advice solution in Australia.
