No, Wealthsimple is not a bank. Wealthsimple has partnered with a program manager to bring you spending features. The Weathsimple Cash Visa Prepaid Card is issued by our bank partner who is a licensed issuer of Visa International Incorporated. These services are provided by service providers including Visa and Galileo Processing.

Wealthsimple Cash is operated by Wealthsimple Payments Inc.

When you use your card for spending features, like tapping your card to buy your morning coffee, we get a split of the interchange between our service providers and the program managers.

Yup, we’re serious.

The Wealthsimple Cash Card is a prepaid card. With it, you can make purchases using the cash in your account instantly, just like debit. The card uses the Visa payments system, and is accepted everywhere Visa is accepted.

Balances in your Wealthsimple Cash account are held in an account with Wealthsimple’s affiliated custodial broker, Canadian ShareOwner Investments Inc. (ShareOwner). ShareOwner is a member of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada. As a result, your accounts are protected by the Canadian Investor Protection Fund within specified limits in the event that ShareOwner becomes insolvent. A brochure describing the nature and limits of coverage is available upon request or at CIPF's website.

ShareOwner deposits the cash you add to your Wealthsimple Cash account in trust at an account with one or more federally regulated, Schedule I banks. We carefully select these banks using a set of criteria that evaluates the institutions’ stability and security. The accounts at these banks are not covered by Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation.

No, currently Wealthsimple Cash is only available in Canada.
