Rated 5 out of 5 by Fidelity review Customer service is phenomenal. Had one slightly unpleasant conversation regarding a margin application, the gentleman I was talking to would not answer my questions specifically. Could have been due to company protocol, no big deal. All other experiences with Fidelity reps have been outstanding. The mobile app is on point. I have the feeling that my account(s) are small potatoes to them, however the reps definitely do not make me feel that way. September 13, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by A reliable place to do business I have been with Fidelity for more than 30+ years. Their web site not only has tool for investment, but also good for retirement and tax planning. It is very easy to follow. The staffs in Fidelity Investment is very helpful and nice. But folks from their other associate channels like Managed Accounts and Annuity Accounts are a little bit less willing to give me true help. September 7, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and good support Fidelity provides many resources for research and their support is excellent. It was easy to start an account and the customer service staff were very helpful when I had questions. I use their mobile app frequently and it is also very good. Overall, as a beginner investor, Fidelity has been great! August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable secure and reliable are 2 very good words to describe my fidelity accounts. I can access them from anywhere and can do anything with extreme confidence. Also the research and ability to keep notes is great! I am glad I opened my accounts! August 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Transfer to Fidelity was the best decision I transferred many of my accounts including retirement to Fidelity last year and it was one of the best decision that I have made. They offer personal service at a reasonable cost. The investment options are the best feature as I am able to satisfy all of my needs under one umbrella. I am looking forward to a long relationship with Fidelity. August 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by reliable Has been a convenient company for me to use as my employer uses Fidelity and I was then able to easily transition to it upon retirement. August 29, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fidelity used to have a great web site Fidelity used to have a great web site. The latest modification to the web site improved little, but the old web site is not accessible anymore. The new site is very slow and, despite providing some additional benefits, got rid of the convenience and speed of the old site. Instead f looking at just 1 page online, I have to browse through about 5-6 pages now to all investments. The site also displays some meaningless information - it seems to be impossible to get rid of all this nonsense despite my multiple requests to do so. The new site attempted to fix something that did not need to be fixed, but did not touch on the many things that needed to be fixed. Shame on Fidelity;s IT! With few exceptions, the service advisers are usually very helpful and knowledgeable. August 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by ? I am generally very satisfied with the account and account services. All is well and satisfactory, with the exception of paper statements. I have opted for paper statements. For the last several years, since Fidelity changed the format, the statements have become VERY confusing and, to say the least, complicated. The information is made unnecessarily detailed and complicated. For example how much is going to be the 'cash-flow' on even smallest IRA accounts (not needed EVERY month), information on end-of-the-month price and other information is separate from any distribution amounts (ALL the information related to ONE portfolio/fund should be TOGETHER, so the customer does not wonder back and forth to assemble the total information. There are other similar issues with the statements lay-out which should be looked at. August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by MRD Distribution & Transfer Answers Both Ian and Joe (being the last person I dealt with) have demonstrated considerable knowledge about the arcane subject of the options available to take MRD distributions and how to execute MRD transfers to non-tax deferred separate accounts at minimum expense. I could not have asked for more--and they certainly outshine the other non-Fidelity financial advisors I have. August 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fidelity Accounts My account at Fidelity has allowed me to integrate all of my IRA's as well as my 401K account as well as aggregate a number of post tax stock accounts into one place for ease of convenience as well as planning. One of your reps was very instrumental in initiating this account. August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Analysis I am a novice investor, but the analysis and recommendations provided by fidelity have given me great confidence in my ability to manage my portfolio. My account has been very easy to learn and use, despite my lack of experience. August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by User friendly sites with smart reps a call away Fidelity offers access to a vast amount of investment information. Trading is easy and more than reasonable. When needed representatives are almost always courteous, always knowledgeable and give you the time you need. August 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Customer Service I am still learning the site. I have trouble finding the information I want, but there appears to be research data needed. It will just take time to learn where to go and how to organize it. The speed from screen to screen is slower than expected, The people on the customer service desk are very knowledgeable and friendly. August 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Secure and reliable It provides me a convenient tool to manage my money. The research tools are very good and easy to use. All in all, I would say this Fidelity's web site has been a real great tool to manage my money as well as provided me a very complete education in investing - something I have not pursued before. I have enjoyed my experience use Fidelity's web site. August 23, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great service is sometimes startling While on vacation in Mexico, it came to pass that I needed to transfer money from my Fidelity account to a mortgage company in Santa Rosa, CA. I hand wrote a note / letter to Fidelity stating the requisite information including tax withholding. The hotel faxed the information for me to Fidelity. A while later, I received an email telling me "Fidelity cannot complete the requests" or some such. I was unpleasantly surprised at this communication. Before I could address the situation, about 5 minutes later I received two emails telling me my requests had been executed. Why the first mail? I don't know. Other than this, all went well and I thank Fidelity for honoring my poor penmanship letter. August 22, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by All I could ask for Everything is so great; I don't know where to start. Your representatives are outstanding! Not only their expertise, but their friendly, caring service. I love my Visa check card and cash account, keeping things safe, receiving my social security, paying my bills, etc. And all at such below the competition fees! I am glad to have this opportunity to say "Thank you so much' in writing. I tell your reps, but I like being able to tell you in person. So . . . Thank you again! August 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Corporate Account I use this account for business and there are a few features that have been frustrating. The cash balance does not always match the market balance. I had to pay an overdraft fee before I figured this out as QB downloads the latter. Check deposits take a long time to deposit into the cash balance affecting my cash flow negatively. Your customer service dept was unable to give me a contact for a reference. August 17, 2016
