Diversify with one trade

Instead of diversifying your portfolio with individual stocks, you can cover entire sectors with one ETF.

Pay less than a mutual fund

The majority of ETFs are passively managed—which means they typically have lower operating expense ratios (OERs) than mutual funds.

Buy and sell with flexibility

Unlike mutual funds, you can buy and sell ETFs during regular market hours and with extended-hours trading on Public.

Get the best price possible

Unlike most online brokers, we don’t participate in payment for order flow (PFOF)—which means we don’t sell your trades to market makers. Being PFOF-free removes conflict of interest from our business model and allows us to get you the best possible price execution for your trades.
