How you make money

EarlyBird is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) and partners with wealth management and financial planning experts to curate their investment offering. EarlyBird offers parents a fixed portfolio model, where they recommend expertly crafted ETF-based portfolios made up of both securities and bonds, based on the age of the child, your investment goals, time horizon, risk tolerance, and other factors. There are 5 fixed portfolios that a user can choose from ranging from conservative (100% bond based ETF's) to aggressive (100% equity based ETF's). 

How EarlyBird makes money

Currently, EarlyBird generates revenue by way of its $1 per month subscription fee and $2 per gift processing fee.
