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.

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 Trade Tool I wish the trading tool was a little easier to use. It doesn't do much to guide an investor through selecting the appropriate TYPE of trade, or showing the maximum number of shares that you could purchase, etc. There is room for improvement. Why not make that tool AWESOME? September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of Use Find the site very easy to use and if I ever have had an issue, the support people are excellent. The only negative would be the credit card. I find the Fidelity Card the most difficult site to use of the 6 cards that I maintain. September 27, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lost Access to 403(b) A few weeks ago my 403(b) account "disappeared" from my portfolio that I check online. I have made numerous calls to Fidelity to try and have this issued resolved. I have spent approximately an hour on the phone using up prepaid phone minutes in an attempt to have this problem corrected. I have been told twice that I would be called back on this issue and no one calls me back. As of this morning I still do not see this account listed. I will have to move my accounts to another company; I need to be able to monitor my all of my accounts. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by no complaints fidelity has consistently shown me great service in so far as managing my money, dealing with problems and answering any questions i may have, even if not about my fidelity account. September 27, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Secure The Fidelity account is a great, full featured account with maximum choices for investment options. The website is easy to us, but I do think the mobile app could us some additional tuning. September 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Presentation, Flexible & Reliable I switched to Fidelity from using another investment companies website for managing my investment accounts because the other company's website was very basic and became unreliable, and sometimes would not work at all with my IE browser when they made changes. So far Fidelity's website has been very good and more flexible in choices of how you can display your account info. The only thing I have found to be missing is there doesn't seem to be any way to display my overall personal performance of my accounts on a month-to-month or year-to-year basis. Other than that I am very pleased in using Fidelity online services, although it can become a bit confusing or overwhelming at times as there is so much available and so many web pages to navigate when wanting to dive a little deeper into account management options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Feedback Easy to transfer and I like the email updates on the status. September 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Valuation issue Most days my account says I lost $50k. This is because you use a $ price for a gbp security. I have reported it several times and no one seems to be able to fix it September 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by reliable Most information I get through the web site are use for understanding and making investment decision . the resources offered are very reliable and current. I use the on line information for both domestic and international use. I am a satisfied customer . September 15, 2016
