Week 1: Wealthfront Initial Investment Takes a Week

Wealthfront initial investment takes about a week from opening an account and getting vested. I thought I was able to open an account on Sunday and have my money deposited on Monday to start tracking my progress, but instead, I had to wait through a various of verification steps. After verifying, Wealthfront takes a few days to actually take money from the bank and invests it depending on your risk level. I wish it was instant.

If you’re thinking of getting into Wealthfront, anticipate about a week of opening an account to initial investment.  The screenshot below shows the on boarding process. I wasn’t able to take a screenshot of every step, but you can pretty much see the gist of what to expect.Week 1 Wealthfront process
