I use FolioFirst as a cost effective and fun way to purchase stocks of companies I know. I also use it to teach my daughters about investing. At 10 & 13 years old, the new custodial accounts are a real positive. I noticed my daughter looking at past performance of stocks to determine if it would be a good buy for her. I think it’s a great service and I tell people about it all the time!

I enjoy trading on the Folio First platform. As a somewhat beginner investor, Folio First has given me the opportunity to dabble in the stock market with very little restriction or confusion.

I really like the platform. It allows little guys, like myself, to build a portfolio over time with fractional shares. I only wish I could have done this in my 20’s.
I would like to say I love FolioFirst and I am so grateful to have a way to invest in stocks I want with small investment amounts. You have a broad choice of stocks to be well diversified and it has been a wonderful experience to build my account. I simply can’t say enough good things about FolioFirst.
