The timing of a withdrawal depends on several factors including what time of day the withdrawal request is made and the institution receiving your funds, but most withdrawals take 3 to 4 business days before the requested funds are received.
Once your withdrawal has been requested and confirmed, we will be able to place any required trades. Following liquidation, most securities require a period of 2 business days after the trade date to settle (this applies to all brokerage firms, not just Wealthfront). Once trade settlement is complete, funds will typically arrive in your Cash Account or external bank account in 1-2 business days.
It may take longer if, for example, you recently made a deposit or if you are withdrawing to a different bank account than the one used for initial funding.
Note: For security purposes, there is a 5 business day hold on all new deposits before your funds can be transferred out of your account.
