Wealthsimple Generation is a premium service for clients who have net deposits of at least $500,000 or have a total assets (including Managed investing, Stocks & ETFs, Crypto, Cash and Save accounts) of at least $500,000 — whichever is higher.
Whether you’re a long-time client whose portfolio value has gone up over time, or a brand-new client transferring to us, you'll have the opportunity to qualify for the Generation status.
For example, if you have $100k in your Managed RRSP, $150k in your Managed Personal, $100k in your Managed Corporate account, $50k in DIY TFSA, $50k in Cash and $50k in Crypto, you would meet the $500k threshold for Generation
Pay lower fees

How do you calculate net deposits?
We calculate net deposits by adding up the total amount of money you deposit or transfer into all of your Wealthsimple accounts (including Managed investing, Stocks & ETFs, Crypto, Cash and Save accounts). Your net deposits will not decrease if the value of your portfolio decreases due to market fluctuations. However, your net deposit will decrease if you withdraw or transfer out funds from your accounts.
I have some or all of my $500,000 in a joint account; will I qualify for Wealthsimple Generation status? Does the other account holder?

What happens if my net deposits and my total assets go below $500,000?
If both your net deposits and total assets with Wealthsimple fall and stay below the $500,000 minimum, you will be subject to a change in status.
What’s involved in the financial planning sessions?
A financial planning session is a conversation with one of our experienced portfolio managers. They might focus on a few different areas, depending on your goals.
To start, we'll send you a worksheet asking you to share some details about your financial situation. Once completed, we'll be able to speak to the overall health of your financial situation.
We can then turn our focus to whether you're on track to achieve your financial goals (and provide some recommendations on how to get back on track if needed).
For example, if you're hoping to retire at a certain age, or make a big purchase in the future - we can check whether you're on track and, if required, help you plan for and recommend any adjustments to help you get there.
We can also help plan a retirement income strategy that will provide you with the most benefit - such as minimizing taxes.
After the session, we'll send you a financial plan document so you have something to reference both during the session and afterwards. This is a living document and will change and grow along with you.
There's no hard limit to how many financial planning sessions you have access to.
