SHAREBUILDER innovated an
easy approach to online investing in stocks, mutual funds and
exchange-traded funds based on
automatic recurring investments
with no minimums and no maintenance fees.
By investing in dollar
amounts, you can acquire fractional shares—not a common
practice with most brokerages.
You designate the amount and
frequency for your recurring
transaction, and the source
bank account for the automatic
deduction. You set up these
preferences online through a
simple process, and you can
modify these preferences just
as easily anytime, with access
to your account 24 hours a day.
With the ShareBuilder
approach it is easy to follow
your investment strategies.
