Have questions? Have at it.

The Stock Investing Account really is as good as it sounds, but if you’re a doubter these FAQs may help.

Wait, no commissions? Do you really charge me nothing??

It’s true. The Stock Investing Account has zero commissions which means you don’t have to pay a fee when we buy or sell securities for your account.

Still waiting for the catch. How does Wealthfront make money then?

Nope, no catch. The only money we make on your Stock Investing Account comes from the small net interest margin we earn on the money in your Cash Account. Which happens to be the same Cash Account with one of the highest interest rates in the industry at 5.00% APY. We also make money when you like Wealthfront enough to use our other investing products, like our Automated Investing Account, which offers expert-built, globally diversified portfolios, Tax-Loss Harvesting, automatic rebalancing, and more.

So, how is this account different from the Automated Investing Account?

Not to get all literal on you, but for starters, one is automated and the other isn’t. Our Automated Investing Account not only personalizes a portfolio for you based on your appetite for risk, it handles everything from rebalancing to finding ways to help you save on your taxes — all for the low, annual fee of just 0.25%. For the Stock Investing Account, it’s up to you to let us know what stocks you want to trade, when, and how much, but we’ll still help you understand how that lines up with your investing goals and manage all the trades on your behalf.

Ok, but how do you help me understand how investments line up with my goals?

When you open an account, we’ll ask a few simple questions to give you what we call your Risk Score that reflects our recommendations on how you should invest based on your age, your income, and your comfort with risk and volatility. Then, as you choose stocks you want to add to your portfolio, we’ll show you how the riskiness of your choices lines up with our Risk Score recommendations, so you can make better, more informed decisions about your investments.

Do I need to invest in an entire collection to use the Stock Investing Account?

Nope. You can invest in stocks with or without our collections. We like to think our stock collections are a great way to find your new favorite stocks, especially if you want to invest outside the box or find something new. When you explore a collection, you can choose just the stocks you want to invest in, or you can take the whole shebang, whatever works best for you. We’ll use fractional shares to do our best to allocate your investment proportionally to the full list of stocks you want.

What are fractional shares? Asking for a friend.

Pardon the jargon, but fractional shares are just a way to slice up a stock into smaller pieces. Like splitting a sandwich 18 ways if it’s a really expensive sandwich. That means you could buy $1 of Amazon, Alphabet, or Verizon.

Got it. How soon can I actually invest after I sign up?

If you already have a Cash Account, you can invest immediately when you open a Stock Investing Account. If you don’t have an existing Wealthfront Cash Account, or you’re new to Wealthfront, you can invest as soon as you’ve added funds to your Wealthfront Cash Account.

Will I also earn interest on my cash that I haven’t invested?

Yep! Any cash that’s in your Cash Account will keep earning our high interest APY, which is currently 5.00%!Learn more
