If you're an existing client, once your net deposits reach $100,000 you'll automatically receive Wealthsimple Black status and be charged lower fees. We'll send you an email detailing the perks!
What happens if I make a withdrawal that puts my portfolio balance under $100,000?
To qualify for Wealthsimple Black, you must have $100,000 or more in net deposits in Wealthsimple accounts. If you withdraw to below $100,000 in net deposits, you'll lose your Wealthsimple Black status.
What happens if the market dips, putting my portfolio balance below $100,000?

I'm already a Wealthsimple client. Will my fees change?
Under our new pricing structure, the fees you pay to Wealthsimple will either be lower or remain the same. If you have under $100,000 invested, you'll continue to pay a management fee of 0.5%. If you have over $100,000 in net deposits invested, your entire fee will be lower - you'll pay 0.4% instead of 0.5%.
