Invest your savings

You work hard to save. But do your savings work hard for you?

A savings account is great if you need cash on hand, but know you have choices when it comes to growing your money for the future.

An investment account is a great option to help reach your important life goals.

Give your savings a boost
with an investment account.

We'll build a diversified portfolio to grow your money for the long term. And unlike IRAs or 401(k) retirement accounts, there are no restrictions. You can withdraw what you need at any time, for any reason.

A savings account is good for emergencies and near-term purchases. An investment account is ideal for your long-term financial needs, where your savings can benefit from higher returns. Investing can mean more risk, but your portfolio is built to fit your risk comfort zone to minimize potential losses.


Wealthfront investment accounts invest in up to 7 asset classes.

Invest a little time in the details.

Still deciding if a long-term investment account is right for you? These frequently asked questions may help:

How is an investment
account different from a retirement account?

Retirement accounts come with tax advantages. But they also have rules around eligibility, contribution amount, and withdrawals. Investment accounts do not have the same tax advantages but anyone can open one and use their money at any time.

Can I move my money
out if I want to?

Yes, you can withdraw your money at any time.

How long should I
be invested for?

To us, long-term investing means investing for at least five years.

What does opening a new account involve?

We ask a few questions so we can build an investment portfolio that suits your needs. Once your money arrives, we'll invest it.

What are the costs to invest?

Wealthfront charges a 0.25% advisory fee. The other cost to invest is the expense ratio of the investments in your portfolio. The weighted average annual expense ratio of a taxable Wealthfront portfolio is between 0.07% - 0.16%.

What are my options
for funding?

An electronic bank deposit, a wire transfer, or an account transfer from your brokerage to Wealthfront.
