North Capital

North Capital builds free direct-to-consumer financial planning platform.

North Capital Inc. decided the financial planning tools available to investors weren’t enough, so it built evisor and made it available for free.

Just two years after automated investing platform Wealthfront introduced its algorithmic financial planning experience, Path, a team of advisors in Midvale, Utah, is introducing its own direct-to-consumer financial planning experience, called evisor. The platform, which provides no-frills financial planning designed for retirement, is available for free.
