WITH M1 THERE’S NO COMPARISON

FLEXIBLE, FREE INVESTING
Craft your own strategy of stocks and ETFs, or use M1’s pre-built Expert Pies—M1 gives you more features with no fees. With Wealthfront, you’re limited to a portfolio of ETFs if your portfolio value is under $100,000, and they charge a .25% advisory fee.
Wealthfront lacks access to fractional shares, so you’ll be leaving plenty of cash uninvested—M1 has no such limit. Diversify your portfolio with ease and invest every dollar according to your unique strategy.
Wealthfront data is as of September 15, 2021.
