made for investors

Organize your portfolio for the long-term

Drag-and-drop companies you believe in for the long-term into a dedicated space, called the Long-Term Portfolio. After adding a stock or ETF to your Long-Term Portfolio, you can share that activity in the feed and tell others why you believe in the investment.
