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 Easy and reliable My Fidelity account is the best brokerage account that I ever had. It combines excellent internet self-service navigation features, with excellent customer service assistance by phone. And the few times that I have had to go to an office, the service is fast and excellent as well. November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Fidelity makes it easy to consolidate my accounts. The rep was fantastic when I needed to consolidate from 2 separate providers. Walked me thru all the steps and was patient. Online research is great for the do it yourself investor. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Secure and reliable Service is world class, accuracy and speed of trades unmatched. November 16, 2015
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. Gotta love the low commissions, lots of research, cash management account with ATM fee reimbursement, 24/7 live person availability, and credit cards that pay 2% back. Bravo Fidelity. Bravo. January 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Although having a Fidelity account for many years, I recently opened a trading account and am very happy for doing so. The convenience of transferring money, transferring other funds and making trades has impressed me very much. The ease of use with the website, the convenience and ease to navigate is wonderful. The website is great for viewing my accounts. I've very happy to be using Fidelity. I've also used the phone technical people and they have always been fantastic, super cooperative, informative, patient, etc. I've told numerous family members and friends about the great service, if they choose to use these types of accounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great customer service The Fidelity website is very functional and user friendly. The guidance I received from my account executive was excellent. No pressure or over selling. All aspects of my Fidelity experience are exemplary. August 6, 2014
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. March 22, 2013
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life should be so easy Working with my accounts at Fidelity is as easy as it gets. I really feel more secure in my investments becaaue of all of the tools Fidelity offers. I was a broker for 35 years and I wish I had the tools available to me that I get from Fidelity. Fast action on trades, instant reponse from my inquires -- really a great pleasure to work with Fidelity. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent web site I have a number of different brokerage accounts, my fidelity account is by far the best. Web site fast, easy to navigate, and offers excellent research tools. May 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always Helpful The tools associated with a Fidelity Account are powerful and versatile. I also have called Fidelity on many occasions and have always found the representatives to be helpful and informative. In addition, we have a personal representative which is a valued relationship for us. May 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Company Fidelity is a Great Company to deal with!! I have been a customer for many years!! January 12, 2017
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fidelity is slow and limits access to your own money Sold some stock and days later they finally say that the money is available and that X is available. The amount shown as available to withdraw is less than the Cash in the account and when I go to transfer this to my checking account, they say that this lesser amount is not even available. Tired of dealing with Fidelity and wouldn't, except that my company uses them. January 12, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Value and services Fidelity provides excellent value (low cost of trading securities) and outstanding personal plus phone services. Fidelity also offers free lectures on understanding general investings. I choose Fidelity, because there's a local office that I can personal speak to an representative, this is the main reason I choose Fidelity. January 11, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Website I like Fidelity's website as I do my own research and make my own investment decisions. Also, the fees are reasonable and I like the savings over using an advisor. January 10, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use and helpful. I have found the tools within the web version of Active Trader to be useful for my style of investing. I am still learning about the whole process and your site has helped me learn. January 10, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Hopes Fidelity representatives who have helped me since my husband's passing have been very professional, helpful, and patient. January 10, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best source for Trade Over all Fidelity has the tools that enable any trader feel comfortable to make a decision at that moment. January 9, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by The very good and the ugly I use only the brokerage platform, only for long-equity, no margin, no options. It is easy to set up accounts and I obtained excellent help through online help as well as by email and real-live person when it was required. I love the ability to view and trade positions in all accounts at once, with clear reminders of which account positions are being traded at a given time, a definite advantage over other brokerage services I use. Commissions are reasonable. There are no hidden fees. Trades are prompt and appear to execute at favorable prices when possible. Mobile check deposit is easy and intuitive. The ugly is that I do not like the arrangement of columns, I do not even care to see some of the columns and I might want to add a few of my own in the portfolio view, but there is no way to customize it. This seems a surprising and silly oversight in an otherwise very well executed application. Fix this and convenience and overall rating go to excellent. January 9, 2017
Rated 1 out of 5 by Finding info Good luck finding your information, get a cup of coffee and be patient you will find something at some point January 8, 2017
Rated 3 out of 5 by not happy It takes forever for a deposit (checks) to appear on the account. January 3, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Help readily available I've had the account for about five months. I've been very pleased with being able to get help from customer service. People have always been very polite, friendly and willing to spend time with me. January 3, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by 24 hour on line availability 24 hour availability is a great plus. The process for integrating stock certificates from other companies is too complicated. Too many precedures. January 3, 2017
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fidelity Review Account is very basic. Not designed for options, margin, or other strategies other than Mutual Funds and Stocks. Margin Rates seem high. January 3, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Use The Fidelity process has improved over the years. I have been an investor since 1999. I was able to establish, set up and fund two accounts without help from Fidelity. It's easy to analyze and adjust funds in our accounts. I spend a lot of time comparing and adjusting the funds. Fidelity has the tools that we need to make focused decisions. We are very satisfied with the entire process. January 3, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Annuity Statements The only criticism I have is that annuities with outside firms often have less frequent statements (quarterly, for instance) than monthly. I think it would be helpful if Fidelity offered monthly statements for annuity investments just like all other investments through Fidelity. January 3, 2017
