Why automate your investing?


Save Time

Why spend time setting up transfers to your account each month when you could do it just once? With Automatic Buy, we handle your money transfers so you can focus on life's other to-dos.


Pay Yourself First

Directing money to your portfolio before you can spend it somewhere else ensures that your money stays dedicated to your most important goals.


Avoid Emotional Investing

Don’t let financial news or short-term volatility impact your decisions. Automation can help you tune out the noise and stay committed to a regular investment plan.


Take Advantage of Market Fluctuations

Investing consistently through all types of markets can help you buy more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when prices are high.1

1Investing through Automatic Buy cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market. Since it involves continuous investment regardless of fluctuating price levels, investors should consider their financial ability to continue purchases through periods of both high and low price levels.

2All investments are subject to market risk, including the possible loss of principal; they are subject to management fees and expenses. Unlike bank products, investment products are not FDIC-insured, are not bank-guaranteed, and may lose value.
