How much does Wealthfront charge for its service?

Wealthfront does not charge an advisory fee on the first $10,000 of assets under management. On amounts over $10,000, we charge a monthly advisory fee based on an annual fee rate of 0.25%.

As an example, an account with an average monthly balance of $100K with our standard $10K managed for free will have a monthly advisory fee of $18.49. Assuming 30 days in the month and 365 days in the year, the math is as follows: $90,000 * .0025 * (30/365).

The only other fee you incur is the very low fee embedded in the cost of the ETFs you will own that averages 0.08%.

There are no account-opening fees, withdrawal or account-closing fees, trading/commission fees, account transfer fees or any other fees of any kind.

Wealthfront 529 account fees are slightly different. You can view our 529 fee details here.
