Why is there uninvested cash in my account?

Usually, there will be a small amount of uninvested cash in your Wealthfront account for the following reasons:

  • We purchase only whole shares of ETFs for you. This leaves some cash uninvested until there is enough to buy more whole shares according to your Wealthfront plan.
  • We reserve enough cash to cover Wealthfront’s advisory fees.
  • Your cash balance is held in a money market fund (TIMXX)
