This process is called an ACAT and is the industry standard for transferring stocks. Think of it as a wire for stocks.
Seamless And Fast
Submit a request to transfer in less than a minute. Most transfers are completed within a few days (but can take up to 7-10 business days to fully complete).

Whether you're leaving Robinhood, M1 Finance, WeBull, Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade or any other US-based broker that offers ACAT-eligible transfer, we can help.
No Transfer Fees (and we cover yours)
Public charges no fees for incoming transfers. If your current brokerage charges you on the way out, we’ll even cover the fee if your incoming account is over $500.
