How you make money

Stock price appreciation + dividends. For reference: according to historical records, the average annual return from the S&P Index since its inception in 1926 through 2018 is approximately 10%–11%. The average annual return since adopting 500 stocks into the index in 1957 through 2018 is roughly 8%. Adjusted for inflation, the historical average annual return is around 7%. However, it's important to note that each Robo has their own investment strategy that can influence returns.

How Wealthsimple makes money

Management Fees: .5% (under 100k) or .4% (over $100k) management fee depending on account balance. One thing to note is that these fees do not include the management fees charged by the managers of the investment funds that you hold. These fund management fees are referred to as the management expense ratio (the “MER”) and are expected to be about ~0.2% annually. This currency exchange fee is the only fee we charge on trades. Wealthsimple Trade charges a currency exchange fee for USD trades of our Corporate FX rate + 1.5%. There are no commission fees, funds transfer charges, or other hidden fees.

Is it Safe?

Investing entails risk including the possible loss of principal and there is no assurance that the investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. All of our accounts have standard investor protection up to $500k in the case of our insolvency
