Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable, consistent, trustworthy and helpful Whereas some other large corporations that deal with thousand, probably millions, of customers, apparently do not have a logical system in place, in order to be certain that critical information, like a Financial Durable POA for an incapacitated spouse gets attached to that person's profile in such a way that their access to additional financial engagement is blocked.... Fidelity on the other hand has personnel who are knowledgable, working within an efficient system, so the same scenario is taken care of as it should. I would had have recommended Fidelity to others. # of trades depends upon circumstance & my time. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable Fidelity gives the confident mind and peace of mind. Any customer representatives, so far in all these years almost from the year 1996 onwards,I have had the conversations and trading transactions,are attentive and knowledgable. I really appreciate their job strategy and patience in answering to any / all of the questions. April 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Support Thank you for providing excellent support when I call with questions. Your staff is outstanding and very courteous. My one complaint is the way trading information is transferred to TurboTax. I sell options regularly and when they expire worthless they result in ZERO cost. Unfortunately, the trade information transferred to TurboTax has a blank instead of a ZERO value for each similar transaction. Consequently, I have to manually enter the ZERO, sometimes going through hundreds of records. Additionally, there is a problem with the way TurboTax enters the Date Acquired and the Date Sold. A great majority times the TurboTax dates are identical for those two dates, but sometimes one day apart. Seems that incorrect information is being transmitted to TurboTax. It appears TurboTax uses the Date Acquired and Settlement Date instead of Date Acquired and Date Sold dates. April 11, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by augiedoggie excellent service and all objectives accomplished. March 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Generally good Overall I think the service has been improving and expanding which is what I would expect. The software platform has become more reliable even during busy periods, which is obviously a big improvement from the problems I used to experience in the last hour of trading. I'd like to see continued expansion in available fixed income securities, as I'm often looking up companies with public debt that is not available on fidelity. March 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Safe and reliable My account is very simple and because of the great service will become the receiver of my Federal TSP when I roll it over. March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best I've Ever Had It's just always right. The website is best by far in my experience. Customer service is fine. I'm very satisfied. March 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable so happy Fidelity is managing my account for me i usually check my account often. March 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is why I prefer phone calls to online access. I dislike, no I hate the Fidelity online site, especially since its been streamlined (or dumbified) with the mobile site. However, once I pick up the phone I know i'll be talking to a competent, knowledgeable profesional who will help me with whatever issues i might be dealing with. This was just another example of that. Thank you. March 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Short and sweet I believe that Fidelity has a good platform for a self directed investor. I do not believe that Fidelity is the easiest to use when you interface with a relationship manager. March 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Customer service In the time I have dealt with Fidelity I have found there customer service to be very good both online and over the phone and I would recommend them to others. March 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by User friendly and works well I am overall very satisfied with the tools and services. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because you don't offer realtime quotes and trading for index futures. March 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and easy I like the platform and look. Trading and research are very easy. I also like that there is an account representative that I can talk to March 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Can't get through The trading, reporting, research, etc. are fine. However, even though I'm a Fidelity Premium Services customer, I have a hard time reaching you by phone when I need to. Waits of 10+ minutes are not acceptable. March 7, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied Client I have found the Fidelity investment account to be a reliable source for researching securities as well and purchasing individual stocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Secure and reliable The monthly report has too many pages. There is a lot of blank space. If I would print the whole report it takes too many pages February 29, 2016
