How often should I invest money?

We believe in the power of frequent, small investments. That’s why we help you start investing with as little as $5. Regular investments—whether through Round-Ups or by setting up a Recurring Investment every week or month—allow you to take advantage of something called dollar-cost averaging. Investing at a regular interval can help you capture more investment gains over time because you’re purchasing more shares when prices are low and fewer when they’re high.
