Bank wire transfers to and from Fidelity

A wire transfer is an electronic payment used to transfer funds between bank accounts. It's the fastest way to securely transfer large sums to yourself, other people, or a business. Bank wires are reviewed and verified by employees at both the sending and receiving firms before they’re processed to ensure the sender has the money to complete the transfer, and that the receiving account is available to accept the money.

Wires from Fidelity

Bank wires are the fastest way to send money from your Fidelity account, as funds sent before 4 p.m. ET on a business day are typically available the same day. You can send wires from your Fidelity account with some basic information:

  • For wires to your own account, you'll need the routing and account numbers you're wiring to.
  • For wires to someone else, you'll need the recipient’s routing and account numbers, name, address, and contact information.
