When you start investing with Stash, you get more than just a platform that allows you to build a balanced portfolio. You receive the tools, choices, and guidance to empower you to invest with confidence in a way that reflects who you are.

We’re guided by three principles we call The Stash Way.

  • Choose individual stocks and funds that reflect your goals and beliefs.
  • Buy and hold. Investing is a long-term game.
  • Turn on Recurring Transactions to keep adding to your Stash on a regular basis. It will keep you on track to reach your goals.

Buy and hold

At Stash, we believe that you should invest for the long term. After all, you are investing for your future, right? Stash isn’t about trading, or getting rich quick. We believe in getting cozy with your investments, and watching them grow over years, and even decades.

Which will mean buying and holding them through ups and downs.

Recurring Transactions. Invest automatically

With Recurring Transactions you can thoughtfully choose how much and how often you want to invest, but then let the power of automation do the heavy lifting.

Consider this auto-investing in yourself and for your future. Recurring Transactions makes investing easier than ever. You choose how much you’d like to invest ($5, $10, $100?), how often you’d like to invest (every week, every other week, once a month?), and where you’d like that money to go.

You set it in the app and the transfer happens automatically. No need to remember to do it.

Recurring Transactions is so effective that investors with Recurring Transactions turned on are almost tripling their Stash deposit rates when compared with their non-Recurring Transactions counterparts*.
