Opening Your Account
With digital account opening, investing has never been easier.
We want you to have a seamless experience, which starts with setting appropriate expectations. Please read the entire list and only begin signup when you have gathered the required information.
If you have all of the items below, registration should take 15-25 minutes. Because it is a simple signup, you will not be able to save and return, or move forward if you do not have everything. Please contact us if you have questions so that we can prevent frustration.
We currently offer a wide range of accounts types. If the type of account you wish to open is not listed during the account setup, please contact us. Please be certain of your account registration: funding the wrong type (i.e, an individual when you meant IRA) may have tax implications. If you are unsure what type of account fits your situation, please contact us prior to account setup to confirm.
We suggest completing registration on a laptop or desktop computer browser.
