How do I change my risk score?

To change your risk score, log into our full Website, click on your account name in blue text, and click on your risk score in gray text on the bottom left. This will bring you to your settings where you can change your risk score. You'll be taken through the risk questionnaire again, but at the end you'll be able to change your risk score up or down.

Please note that when you change your risk score for taxable accounts, we don't automatically trade to your new risk tolerance. Instead, we first take the tax consequences into consideration before trading. Learn more here.

We also recommend reading this blog post for more information on the right and wrong reasons to change your risk score.
