How long does it take to transfer funds to my Stash invest account?

When you transfer money from your external bank account to your Stash Invest account, you’ll see the amount in your personal portfolio activity almost instantly.* However, it can take up to three business days for the money to actually move out of your external bank account—it depends on how quickly your bank processes ACH transfers. Before the transfer from your external bank account to your Stash invest account is complete, it will show as “Pending” in the portfolio activity section of your investment account. 


When you transfer money from your Stash banking account¹ to your Stash personal portfolio, you’ll see both your portfolio cash balance and Bank available balance update instantly.


Below are steps to access your portfolio activity:


In App

  • Open Stash 
  • From the home screen, tap Invest
  • Tap the gear icon on the top right of your screen
  • Tap Portfolio activity


On Web

  • Log on
  • Select your name from navigation
  • Select Portfolio activity on the left side of the screen


*Please note that transfers are only processed on business days during banking hours (8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET). Business days are Monday through Friday, and do not include weekends, federal holidays, or market holidays.
