We’re able to offer commission-free trades because we’ve built a low-cost, digital-first brokerage powered by technology. And executing trades actually costs very little for brokerages, so we don't think it's fair to charge our clients big trading commissions.

We do charge currency conversion fees. These fees vary depending on which plan you have.

Core plan: Clients using the Core account pay no fees when trading Canadian stocks. However, every time you trade US stocks, you will pay a 1.5% currency conversion fee when converting CAD to USD (and vice versa).

Premium & Generation plans: Wealthsimple Premium & Generation clients will get access to USD accounts — meaning they can buy, sell, and hold stocks and ETFs in U.S. dollars without the conversion fee per trade. Premium clients will only pay a 1.5% conversion fee when converting between CAD and USD (for example: funding your account.) If you’re moving USD from another account, there is no fee.

In comparison, most brokerages charge around 2% on top of the corporate rate for currency conversion.

We’ve extended our trading hours to give you even more flexibility when it comes to your portfolio. Now you can buy and sell stocks and ETFs during the following time frames:

  • Pre-market trading hours: 7:00 am - 9:30 am EST
  • Regular market trading hours: 9:30 am - 4:00 pm EST
  • Post-market trading hours: 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

And even though we can’t predict the market, our extended hours give you the convenience to trade within it on your own schedule. Currently, only a limited selection of US listed stocks and ETFs are available for trading during extended hours. You can browse eligible securities by searching for and selecting the “extended hours trading” category from the 'Discover' tab search bar in the Wealthsimple app.

Stock lending (sometimes called Fully Paid Securities Lending) is when you give your brokerage (that’s us) permission to loan your stocks to other investors with the goal of earning passive income. We find suitable borrowers who are looking for stocks you have, and take care of setting up the collateral on your loaned assets.

The interest rates and duration of the loan can vary depending on market demands. We’ll always keep you in the loop if there are any changes.

To start lending your stocks, all you need to do is opt in on your Self-directed Investing account agreement. One thing to note: lending is only available for TFSAs and Personal accounts.

For $10/month, you can hold US currency in your RRSP, TFSA, or personal account. So in addition to no commission fees, you’ll be able to transfer US dollars from another Canadian institution into Wealthsimple, then trade US stocks (or hold it as cash) without the worry of conversion fees. You’ll only pay an FX fee when converting currency between CAD and USD (for example: if you deposit CAD into your account.)

Dividend reinvestment is only available for stocks and ETFs that support fractional trading.

Just note that when you turn on dividend reinvestments, it applies to your entire account. For example, you can turn it on for your TFSA account, but not for individual stocks and ETFs within that account.
