Scissors cutting dollar bill show fractional shares put every penny to work

Invest for free

We charge no management fees or commissions, so your money can work harder for you. After all, every dollar you don’t pay in fees is another dollar in your pocket, to spend or further compound for your future.

Dollar bill split between 3 investments with fractional shares

Put every penny to work

Investing in only whole shares limits your wealth building potential, making diversification difficult and causing cash to sit idly in your account where it can’t accrue value. M1 uses fractional shares, so you’re always fully invested — down to the penny.

Tax-efficient investing

M1 tax-efficient investing uses a lot allocation strategy when selling securities to help reduce the amount owed on taxes. Here’s how it works:

You request a withdrawal from your M1 account.

Our algorithm determines which securities to sell, based on target allocations.

We then sell securities, prioritizing them in this order:

  1. Losses that offset future gains
  2. Lots that result in long-term gains
  3. Lots that result in short-term gains

After executing the sale, we transfer the funds to your bank account.
