How long does a brokerage account transfer take?

Most brokerage account transfers take 4-8 business days to complete once you request the transfer. To transfer accounts as efficiently as possible, Wealthfront uses the industry-standard Automated Customer Account Transfer Service (ACATS).

Once you request a transfer from another brokerage to your Wealthfront account, you can check the status of your transfer at any time on your Wealthfront account page.
