M1 Invest Fees

Updated May 2024

Trading Fees (Non-commission fees)


Please note when trading American Depository Receipts (ADR), fees may apply and are charged to you as the holder of the ADR. Fee information for a specific ADR may be obtained from that ADR’s custodial bank.


Regulatory expenses are mandated fees passed on to the consumer. These fees occur when users sell a stock or ETF, and often costs a few pennies. For example, if you sell ten shares of Apple stock at $150 per share, you would pay a total of 2 cents in regulatory expenses — 1 cent in SEC1 fees and 1 cent in TAF2 fees. These costs are calculated as follows:

1SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) Fee* = total price of transaction x $27.80 / 1,000,000

2TAF (Trading Activity Fee) Fee* = $0.000166 per share (up to $8.30 max per trade)

*Fees are rounded up to the nearest penny

Note: Regulatory Trading Fees are set by law and regulation and are subject to change without notice. You should always check the current posted M1 Fee Schedule
