What are stocks and ETFs?

A stock is a share in the ownership of a company. If you are a shareholder, you have a claim on that company's assets and earnings.

ETF stands for Exchange-Traded Fund. An ETF is a themed basket of investments, like stocks and bonds, bundled together into a single fund that is traded on an exchange.

How do I choose my investments?

When you set up your account, you’ll answer some quick questions that will determine your investor profile. Based on your profile, we’ll recommend investments that could best fit your financial goals! You have the freedom to build your own portfolio, and we’ll help guide you as little or as much as you want.

How can I invest with only $5?

Most platforms require you to buy full shares of investments—and that can get pricey, fast. Stash breaks whole investments down into smaller, more affordable pieces called fractional shares, so you can start investing with just $5.
