Trusted by millions of Americans

Stash is a registered investment advisor with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This registration doesn't imply a certain level of skill, but it does require us to follow federal regulations to protect our investors. By law, we must always provide investment advice that is in the best interest of our clients.

No matter what, our clients' investments are always their own. All Stash accounts are held by our trusted partner Apex Clearing, a registered broker-dealer regulated by FINRA.

Apex Clearing is a member of SIPC. This means securities in Stash investment accounts are protected up to $500,000 (including $250,000 for claims for cash). For details, please see

Frequently asked questions

View all security FAQs

What is gifting?

Gifting lets anyone contribute cash or stock to a Stash user's personal investment account. The minimum gift amount is $5, because on Stash, share price doesn't matter. Fractional shares mean you can gift shares of companies and themed funds with high stock prices for as little as $5.

Is Stash regulated?

Yes, Stash is a Registered Investment Adviser. All Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs) are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Is my money safe?

When you use Stash, your information is encrypted and stored on secure servers, and your funds and securities are held with your security in mind.

Your current investments are covered up to a maximum of $500,000 total, including $250,000 in cash balances through the Securities Investors Protection Corporation (SIPC). But SIPC coverage does not insure against the potential loss of market value. For uninvested funds, your Stash account is enrolled in something called the Apex FDIC-insured Sweep Program. And here are the details:

Stash accounts are enrolled in an interest-bearing Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insured Sweep Program (“Sweep Program”) offered through our clearing firm, Apex Clearing Corp. Uninvested Cash in your Stash account will automatically be transferred into the Sweep Program and will earn interest based on the amount and duration of deposits and applicable interest rates. Deposits to the Sweep Program are covered by FDIC insurance up to the $250,000 limit per customer at each FDIC-insured bank that participates in the Sweep Program.

Once your cash balances are deposited with the participating banks under the Sweep Program, they will no longer be covered by SIPC.

Please ensure that you read the Terms and Conditions of the Sweep Program carefully. As with all investments, you should consider carefully if the Sweep Program meets your investment objectives.

Is my personal information secure?

Stash employs 256-bit bank-grade encryption to secure all your information, from personal info to purchase history and more. Stash uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to ensure any information sent between the Stash app and our servers is protected.

Give Robert T. the gift that keeps giving.
