Frequently Asked Questions


What exactly does qplum do?

qplum is an online investment advisory firm, offering A.I. and machine learning based portfolios. We believe that investing is a science, not a game. We offer dynamic investment plans along with risk management and a dedicated team that is with you through the important events of your life.

We handle retirement planning, IRA accounts, 401k rollover, personal investing accounts, joint investment accounts, and more. Read more about qplum's investment philosophy here.


Am I being charged for all the trading that is happening daily in my account?

No. qplum charges what is known as a "wrap fee". This means you pay a small percentage on the total amount of money you invest with us, instead of paying per trade. Structuring our fees this way gives us the flexibility to manage your account the way we think makes most sense without you having to worry about per trade fees racking up. Please see our Form ADV Part 2 document for more details.


Is my money safe?

The funds and any positions that you see in the brokerage are physically under your name. Our operating capital is separate from our clients’ funds. Each client’s funds and securities are held separately under the client’s name. View More


Can I transfer an outside portfolio like an IRA or 401(k) into qplum?

Yes! We can transfer your investments from your existing portfolio to a brand new qplum account through paperless ACATs transfers.

Our returns after fees and expenses

You care about returns. That's why we're sharing our realized performance with you. From our end-to-end control of trading to the use of machine learning algorithms, we developed our entire trading system in-house. This is reflected in our stellar performance.
