Justin H:

I recently transferred from Stash to Fidelity, and in my experience, Fidelity is much better!

From what I hear Fidelity’s customer service is spectacular, even though I have not had to use it. Stash’s customer service sucks.

There are a few down sides to Fidelity but it is more related to app responsiveness and features that I think Fidelity should implement but nothing that I feel has hindered my trading, which to me is the most important part.

Fractional shares don’t transfer so I skipped the transfer + fee. I just took screenshots of all holdings in Stash, sold everything, and repurchased on Fidelity.

It took a few days because I had a lot of holdings but I was able to do this pretty quickly all on my own. I have heard that Fidelity may cover the transfer fee if you’d rather go that route. I am loving Fidelity so far.

Nick P:

Stash charges a fee when you close your account. In my opinion, Fidelity is the clear winner.

Ricky C:

When transferring from Stash to another brokerage, you will be charged a fee of $75. Also, if you have any fractional shares either through purchases or dividend reinvestments, I believe you can only transfer whole shares from one brokerage to the other.

Micky M:

I initiated the transfer from Stash to Fidelity on Tuesday; at the time, my portfolio had $2,000 in cash.

The process involved selling my fractional shares and transferring the whole shares to Fidelity.

This left me with cash that I could invest in my Fidelity account. I am currently waiting for the reimbursement of the $75 transfer fee.
