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 So far very satisfied Trade execution is excellent. Confirmation is very good. Web site is also excellent. May 30, 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.

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 Easy Access I am still learning how to use some of the things on the various screens. But I would like to be able to see the options screen and the probability calculator screen on the same page. It is much harder when I have to keep going back and forth. January 31, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very user friendly, secure and relable Very easy to use website that allows easy access to all necessary financial functions. January 30, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenient and Secure Its very user friendly. Full of valuable information. January 30, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality with ease I have my choice of Brokerage Houses. I choose Fidelity and Fidelity accounts with confidence because of their quality management, easy of trading, good customer service, excellent history and superb current leadership. January 30, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Service excellent customer service good follow up and support January 30, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by review acct. Decent account and company. Just as good as any other I assume. January 30, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Position details 1. It would be helpful two have a history of each position. For example each purchase quantity and original purchase price pour the original purchase the position and each additional reinvestment. It appears now we are given a basis which does not reflect the original purchase price and purchase fees they're all lumped together and it's very difficult to find out what really happened. 2. The Fidelity Android application is frustrating to use as attempting to scroll up and down the different positions seems to stick and will not scroll up your scroll down. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and I haven't figured it out. Maybe a video could be posted showing how easy it is if it isn't easy and it doesn't work for me. The problem with the video would be when it is working it works, but when it doesn't it doesn't and you can't get it to start working. January 29, 2017
Rated 1 out of 5 by CANNOT TRADE ON THE ACCOUNT Out of the blue, for no apparent reason the account became restricted - no real reason provided (sent driver license, utility bill, all info required, account still restricted). Was able to trade and buy some stock for a while, then the account just got restricted. January 26, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Reliable Generally very satisfied. Want to know why year to date p&l on trades made in 2017 are not available on closed positions for current year. Would be very helpful and most likely generate mor trades. January 25, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by secure and good research tool its good, Continent and the research abilities are awesome. I think the trade commission is high and no free trades available. January 25, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very helpful and set up It's very easy to set up, transfer, and make whatever other additions you need to, and the best part is that if you run into an issue or have a question, it's super easy to get in touch with a real person and get the answer quickly. The only downside for me comes when managing the home page as it's not quite as flexible as I would like. For instance, there isn't a way to change what returns it shows. So you'll see daily and overall, but no options for monthly, year-to-date, trailing twelve, etc. January 24, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Retirement fund A part of my retirement funds are with Fidelity. I like the ability to research, and call Fidelity for assistance whenever I need to. My experience is that Fidelity's customer service staff is excellent. January 24, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Broker Moved Our broker moved to an East Coast office. My husband received a phone call informing him of this change, however, I did not receive a call. We have separate accounts, so I'm not sure what the reasoning is, but I find it curious. There are stronger words I could use, but I think you will see my point! January 24, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of use Site is easy to use for trading, money transfers, etc... Reasonable commissions. January 24, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Functional, easy and reliable Very happy with access and ease. Customer service not that great - several times I have called or emailed with a question and told that someone would get back to me but never did. January 24, 2017
