A fractional share is a piece of one whole share of stock. Imagine a company called XYZ has its shares trading at US$ 100 per share. The common way of trading is to purchase an entire share, therefore paying US$ 100. However, with us you are allowed to buy fractional shares, which means you can buy 0.2 share of company XYZ and pay just US$ 20, for example.
That is why you can deposit as little as US$ 1 to start investing with us!
Please read this important disclosure on fractional shares.
