Unlike many other brokerages, we don't participate in payment for order flow. To help offset the cost of routing your Investment Plan orders directly to the exchanges, we charge a small transaction fee.
Are there fees for adding stocks or ETFs to an Investment Plan?
Public routes orders directly to exchanges and does not receive any payment for order flow revenue. However, placing trades in the stock market is not without cost. To cover the expenses associated with each transaction, we charge a nominal fee based on the number of assets in your Investment Plan.
