Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Employees Fidelity has excellent ,knowledgeable people who have been most helpful after my husband died. June 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT Have daily access, if needed, with easy access to your on line and phone services, both excellent.. Because l am almost entirely invested in mutual funds, you have great online info of ratings, investment value, comparisons and other info I'm probably not even aware of. I like having the ability to "drill down" to research top funds in selected categories and to look at your recommendations of funds comparable to mine. Use of Turbotax makes tax time more bearable. Don't know if it's possible, but some early warning tips or footnotes would be helpful, i.e., too heavily invested in foreign, small cap or long term interest funds at this time. I know I could call my representative at any time, but it's the only improvement I can think of. June 15, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sincere I feel constricted in investments choices & times. June 14, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nothing Special Unable to be approved for full options trading. Unable to link my bank account without jumping through hoops. No access to ATP without $50,000 or making a certain number of trades so I am forced to use basic web page trading which isnt very good. When I first transferred stock over here it was put in margin so I couldnt even sell anything without first calling customer service to get it switched to cash account. Which took forever. Waiting time to get someone was over half hour every time and then I had to fight to get stock, that was paid with cash, to get converted from margin back to cash. Only still holding this account for long term div reinvestment and do all my trading elsewhere. Very disappointed with fidelity. June 13, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor Rich The site's not bad but don't give info like how much the account has grown or lost in the last year. 401 k, how much has there been invested and the value month to month. It's very hard to track things. I thing more detailed info would be a hreat help June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Secure and reluable Excellent service and follow up format of financial reports comprehensive and easy to read June 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fast, secure I do like the fact I can move assets quickly to my demand account.....the funds are generally deposited 24- 48 hours. suggestion: why not include a morningstar premium membership to your valued Fidelity clients (i.e. those with a minimum of $x placed with Fidelity). June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits my requirements My retirement account was transferred from a 401k and I manage my own research and investing. The site provides all I need to do the research and it is much appreciated. June 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by very reliable I have been with fidelity for 3 years and could not be more happy there research it great, easy to navigate and they are always adding new features that I love.I give them a 10 on 1 to 10 scale. thanks fidelity. June 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent research tools and Cust.Service I appreciate the discount/free trades they offer and their excellent 24 hour customer service. One suggestion for improvement would be to the website. I would prefer easier access to information when I receive a dividend or wish to change allocations (reinvest or cash)...want one-click access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by New investor Very user-friendly platform that has facilitated my trading and offers so many other services that I will use once I`m retired. June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Service Every employee I have spoken with has been exceptional. Fidelity offers quality services that are unbeatable. I had my funds with another financial agency and it cannot hold a candle to Fidelity. Every time I call Fidelity, the employee presents himself/herself with professionalism and a desire to really help. Extremely happy that we chose to begin a financial relationship with such a prestigious and customer centered company. June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product usability is good. the price is good. the selection of securities is good. I wish I had time to watch the videos. June 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy and convenient Great online tools for research and it's easy to make trades. Reports are full of useful, easy to understand information. May 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Welcome change We receives little information from our previous broker but Fidelity is much more open and direct on issue like fees and information May 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent convenience and alway improving I have been a customer with Fidelity since the 1980s. I have regular IRA and Roth IRA accounts and opened a regular account almost a year ago. Customer service at the Portland Maine office was excellent. I do most of my business online and the site is excellent and I learned a lot from the online webinars. The only thing that could improve customer service would be an email or phone call from my assigned account representative once a quarter with some review and suggestions. May 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Review 1 I wanted to be able to track my investments and my 401k accounts from one source. It is now possible for me to do this as well as a host of others. May 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Brokerage Account Yet We are very pleased with the professional relationship we have with your associates and the respectful communications we enjoy. We trust this level of service will continue in the future. May 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable I am very satisfied with Fidelity, still learning since I took over the account from my husband May 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by nemo Account is clear and easy to use. Contact is not too intrusive, and can be helpful. Transaction costs and fees are trivial when compared with 7% buy and sell fees from years ago. May 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Full Featured Portfolio My Fidelity account is very easy to monitor and conduct trades online. May 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too new to have a full opinion I am a long time Fidelity customer, but until recently, only IRA's and workplace accounts. I presume you are asking about the taxable account. I've only had it a short time and haven't really invested all the cash yet. However, I am a long time fan of Fidelity. I appreciate that the reps are not clueless and if they need to check something, they do. Overall, I think I can count on the advice and service I receive from Fidelity. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Help with my Visa card The representative was very kind to address my specific question that did take a fair bit of work to handle. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT HERE Words can't express how awesome the employees are here at Fidelity. They are experts and very professional. My best quality about this company is how patient they are with answering your questions and they ensure you have a clear understanding of whats going on. Thanks Fidelity!! May 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy To Manage Great Site I find this site very easy to get around on. Very simple, honestly, because of the green color, it makes you feel like money is waiting for you. Eye catching. also, after you learn what you really need to know, you can make your own choices without help. The only downside is that you wait for a person to come to the phone for a good while should you need their services to explain things to you. May 10, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Montly reposrts waste a lot of paper One or two pages would be plenty. Transactions, current number of shares, and end balance is all I want. May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Website I can find almost all of the information I need on the website. The mobile app is not quite as user friendly. May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Full Feature Portifolio & Cash management Fidelity has all the features that I need to review and manage my account. May 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Could offer better convenience Fidelity forces LIFO or FIFO when trading around large positions. It would be better if we could specifically choose the lots we wanted to trade. May 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Highly Recommended! Great layout. Use it almost everyday to keep track of investments. Better financial news feed would be nice. Switched to Full View from Quicken recently - wish it is more robust! May 2, 2016
