How To Close M1 Finance Account

To cancel M1 Finance account, you first move your cash to your bank or another broker. If you have investments you can either sell them or transfer to another broker. Pies cannot be moved to other brokerage firms — you'll have to liquidate them. After this is done, you can call or email M1 Finance customer service and ask them to cancel your account.

The paperwork for an account transfer from M1 Finance to another brokerage firm is handled on the incoming side. M1 Finance does charge $100 for full or partial outgoing account transfers.

Hedge Fund Followers – M1 Finance built these Pies in hopes of mimicking the returns of notable money management groups.

Industries & Sectors – This group of Pies delivers a large selection of investment areas, such as telecom and energy companies. Most of the securities in the Pies are stocks, not ETF’s.

Just Stocks & Bonds – This category includes Pies that are split in various proportions between debt and equity ETF’s.

Other Strategies – This group include a Dow Jones Pie, which invests in the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The other option is the Market Cap 100 Pie, which invests in the 100 largest companies in the U.S. Each stock makes up 1% of the Pie.
