Invest your savings

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

Keeping too much of your money in a savings account really holds you back.

The more you can keep in an investment account, the more your money will grow. So you’ll be better prepared for the long term.

Supercharge your savings
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. Otherwise, your money should be in an investment account. That’s because longer-term savings can take on more risk, and that means you’ll benefit from higher returns.


The multiple of returns that an investment account can generate versus a savings account.

Accounts for every situation:

For yourself: Individual Accounts

For you both: Joint Accounts

For your estate: Trust Accounts

And to bridge short-term needs, Portfolio Line of Credit can help you to access cash quickly without compromising long-term goals.

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.
