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 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.

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 4 out of 5 by Reliable and excellent tools I have been a loyal customer of Fidelity for more than 20 years. I currently have four accounts with them. In the past I have had accounts with other brokerage firms in addition to having an account with Fidelity. I must say that I had found Fidelity to have the best customer service. I especially like their several tools to aid in selecting sector ETFs and mutual funds. Over all I'm a Fidelity man. July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Future Vision I've been incredibly pleased with the service of the Fidelity Account. I'm excited that my future is secure and I am set up for long term success. My only regret is not taking advantage of this sooner in my life. July 25, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Acct review, excellent I am extremely pleased with my Fidelity brokerage account, as it provides excellent investment and trading capabilities that I am able to access and manipulate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Easy I appreciate how easy it is to self manage my Fidelity Accounts. The Fidelity Website makes it quick and easy for me to research and make decisions. July 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by New interface works The new interface is user friendly, but I'd like to see a feature that shows the gains from dividends or interest in a fund. July 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good peopleUncomfortable and hard to reach. The account provides good value and otherwise is like most others, however customer service is anything but comfortable. Phone wait times are crazy long. Moreover, clumsy and uncomfortable login process is required even for the simplest of questions and issues. There is no way to leave your rep an email. In short any access outside the web is a true pain the behind. July 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Speed I wish transactions from/to other accounts were faster. When doing electronic transfers I see no reason why it should take up to 5 days to receive money. July 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by cs reps inconsistent when it's information you want as opposed to trading, I find I have to call multiple times to luck out and get someone willing to provide a higher level of service/information July 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vast Source of Information The Fidelity website executes buy and sell orders efficiently, but equally or maybe even more impressive is the vast resource of information available to help you self manage your investments. Just poking around is educational and you can ask questions of real experts and get quick answers when you need some help or tutoring. How do I.....? and Where can I...? questions are powerful tools you can use to help make yourself a better investor and unlock the doors to the many helpful features Fidelity has available on its website. July 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy access Brokerage account is excellent with clean online access. I would prefer if phone app gave the option to only access the CMA account (check deposit, etc.). I don't wish to expose all my accounts on a phone app. July 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fidelity Accounts We have been very pleased up to date for the information that has been sent to us by e-mail. I especially like that I am now receiving our proxy and annual meeting information...unlike our former broker. July 18, 2016
