Invest for Free with M1

Unlike other investing platforms, you’ll never be charged commissions or markups on any trades, a platform usage fee, or to deposit or withdraw from your connected bank— because we believe your money should work harder for you.

Miscellaneous Fees

Regulatory Fees

Regulatory expenses are mandated fees passed on to the consumer. These occur when users sell a stock or ETF, and often cost only a few pennies. For example, if you sell ten shares of Apple stock at $150 per share, you would pay a total of 4 cents in regulatory expenses — 3 cents in SEC fees and 1 cent in TAF fees. These costs are calculated as follows:

SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) Fee* = total price of transaction x $5.10 / 1,000,000
TAF (Trading Activity Fee) Fee* = shares sold x 0.0001119 with a maximum of $5.95

*Fees are rounded up to the nearest penny
