Fractional shares are tiny slices of shares. How tiny? You can start investing in Stash’s selected stocks or funds with any dollar amount*.

Think big-name technology companies, healthcare companies, corporate bonds, small-cap, big-cap, consumer goods. Creating a portfolio with small amounts of money is easy as opening an app on your phone or logging online.

Plus, you can invest according to your risk level and goals. Want to save for a down payment on a house? Ready to leap into opening your retirement account?

There’s no need to wait to accumulate that big pile of cash. You can start right now. Stash even has a tool called Portfolio Builder that can help you create a portfolio with a mix of investments according to your risk preferences.

The best time to start investing is today. With fractional shares, you don’t have to wait for the “right time” to start. The time is now.

Sure, you’re starting out small. That’s okay. Start with any dollar amount  and invest in a company that you think represents the future. Invest a little in a bond fund to protect you against inflation. And then maybe a little in  an international fund that gives you access to global companies.

Even if you’re starting small, fractional shares can still offer you a return on your money and depending on your investment, dividends.

Little amounts can earn interest, and that interest can compound over time. Especially if your dividends are automatically reinvested through DRIP, which Stash offers.

For those who are looking to invest in the market but worry they don’t have enough to begin, fractional shares are a good way to get started.

How can I purchase fractional shares on Stash?

You can purchase fractional shares of stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on Stash.

Now is the time. Start now.

Made it this far? Congrats!

You’re one step closer to becoming an investor.
