How to Open Your Account

Watch the video above or read the 12 simple steps detailed below to open your account, and you’ll be ready to transfer money in as your initial investment. (We call this ‘funding’ the account.)

First, we’ll collect your personal information such as name and address, and you’ll create a secure password. Next, we’ll ask for your age, your annual income, and how much you’re interested in investing. After that, you’ll enter information about your financial goals, your timeframe for a return, and how much risk you’re willing to accept. At the end, we’ll confirm if this is an individual or retirement account and collect some details about your employment. Lastly, we’ll ask if you’re married, who will benefit from the account funds, and any trusted contacts you’d like to include. Once all of this information has been submitted, you’ll get an email to verify you’re account so you’re ready to fund it!
