Funding with a Wire Transfer

How do I fund my account with a wire transfer?

If you're looking for a quick way to get money into your ShareBuilder account, using a wire transfer is your answer. As a bonus, monies from wire transfers are considered "cleared" when they go into your ShareBuilder account. This ensures you can start trading right away, and these funds won't be subject to a holding period.

We provide this service free of charge, but your financial institution may charge a fee for initiating a wire transfer.

Here's how to wire funds to your ShareBuilder account:

  1. Go to Accounts > Transfer Money > Deposit & Withdrawal >Wire Transfer.
  2. Select the account you want to use and then select Wire funds to your ShareBuilder account.
  3. Click the link to View and Print the wire transfer form.
  4. Take the form to your financial institution so they can initiate the wire transfer.

Tip: If we receive a wire transfer before 4:00 PM ET, the funds post to your ShareBuilder account the same business day, but we cannot guarantee that the funds will be available for trades to be placed that same day.
