How do I open a Wealthsimple account?

So glad you asked! Opening an account is really easy and can be done in a few short steps:

  • First, complete the online application. From our homepage, click “Get Started” and follow the prompts. You'll give us some basic information, answer a few questions about your investment objectives and previous investment experience
  • Suitability: We'll assess your information and provide a personalised investment recommendation to you.
  • You'll then need to tell us what kind of accounts you want to open, and how and when you want to fund the accounts, either by a debit card payment, direct debit, bank transfer or transfer from another account.
  • If it feels right, you'll agree and confirm the legal bits including an Investment Management Agreement. If you want to talk to us first, you can call us.
  • That's it! Your account should be up and running, if you send money over straight away it will be invested within 5 business days.
