Ellevest money membership
Ellevest has three levels of membership — you pick the one that fits your life best, and you can change anytime. The Ellevest Essential membership costs $1 a month, Ellevest Plus is $5 a month, and Ellevest Executive is $9 a month.
We don’t charge a separate advisory fee (bps) on your assets. Fees for your advisory services, execution, custody and banking services* (your Ellevest Save and Spend accounts) are included in your membership fee.
For the Ellevest Spend & Save accounts, there are no overdraft fees, no account fees, and ATM fees are reimbursed when using your card in the US.** If you make a purchase with your debit card outside the US, any international transaction fees will be charged to your account. If you use an ATM outside of the US, an International ATM withdrawal fee of $5 will be applied.
Ellevest Digital & Premium (no longer available to new clients)
For Ellevest Digital & Premium, clients pay a single fee for brokerage, custodial, investment advisory and other related services as described in our Form ADV Brochure and Client Agreement.
For Ellevest Digital, this fee is 25 basis points (0.25%) per year of your assets under management. For Ellevest Premium, this fee is 50 basis points (0.50%) per year of your assets under management.
The fee is prorated and charged monthly (in arrears) based upon the market value of the average daily account balance of your invested accounts over the preceding month. This is referred to as the “Program Fee” in your Client Agreement and other account disclosure documents.
There is no fee charged for any client funds held in Emergency Fund goals.
The Ellevest Digital, Premium & membership fees do not include the underlying fees charged by the funds in your account. These fees are built into the purchase price of each security, and do not appear as a separate fee transaction on your statement. For Ellevest core (non-Impact) portfolios, the ETF fund fees can range from 0.05% to 0.10% per year, and for Ellevest Impact Portfolios, these ETF and mutual fund fees can range from 0.13% to 0.19% per year.
*This range includes blended expense ratios for members’ overall portfolios, not individual fund expense ratios.
