Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential and Complete Having been an account holder with Fidelity for over 30 years, it's hard to imagine what my financial affairs would be like without it. For virtually every type of product or service, Fidelity provides an appropriate and competitive solution. Their website offers the ability to quickly and efficiently monitor and transact details of building and managing a financial portfolio. But even more important is the extensive network of competent financial people just a phone call away. They are knowledgeable, accessible, and courteous. The combination is simply unsurpassed. I have recommended them to friends and family without reservation. June 20, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than I hoped I moved to Fidelity in August 2015 and I'm so impressed with the level of service I've received. It's rare to feel like I'm getting more for my money but that is the case at Fidelity. My rep and his team are responsive, the Fidelity website and platforms are user-friendly and the research at Fidelity is top-notch. I recently started using ActiveTraderPro and I love the analytics. I've logged in for two free Webinars which have been useful and a good use of my time. Looking forward to long relationship with Fidelity. February 16, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenience and Value Fidelity is constantly updating their web site with additional tools, calculators, and articles. I especially enjoy the View Points I occasionally receive via email. Whenever I've called the company to discuss a problem the first person I talk to takes ownership and stays with me until my problem is resolved. My Account Executive is professional and personable, and the amount of contact I have with him is just right. October 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pefection I tried many other brokerage firms and have found Fidelity to be the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grateful for Fidelity I can't remember, exactly, when I first created an alliance with Fidelity; it's been that long (I'm now 82). I've been advised by ao many of Fidelity's splendid associates, always to my satisfaction. It's an organization rooted in efficiency; I've never had a complaint with any of those assigned to my account. My Fidelity account supports me now, as it has for decades. I'm a grateful customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable Very satisfied with your services. Prior to joining Fidelity, I compared you with your competition, and you were the clear-cut winner. Execution of trades are fast, your system keeps me informed of the status, independent stock research thru several well-known providers is available, and information on earnings and dividend, etc. are available on a daily basis. No complaints on your accounting system---statements are available when I want them, and I always reconcile my dividends and never had a problem. Your customer service department has been contacted by me several times, and they have always been polite and helpful. My daughter recently changed jobs and I plan to talk to her about moving her 401k to Fidelity. March 20, 2013
