Frequently Asked Questions


What exactly does qplum do?

qplum provides financial advice. We invest your money automatically in a portfolio using data and algorithms. The algorithms decide what and when to buy and sell, without any human intervention.

We do not pick stocks. We invest in strategies, like big banks and hedge funds do. We offer active management, instead of passive portfolios which follow the market. We offer alpha, risk management, and algorithmic execution, which most digital advisors do not.


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

We believe that high returns is not about high risk. On the contrary, to have peace of mind, one needs high returns. We are a machine learning first shop. Every aspect of our trading from feature learning to execution is fully based on machine learning. It shows in our stellar performance.
