Automatic exchange

Dividends and capital gains

Set up »


Dollar-cost averaging*

Invest a fixed dollar amount on a regular schedule regardless of the share price. Shares will be bought at low and high prices, averaging the final price of your shares. Using dollar-cost averaging, you can avoid the risk of investing a lump sum when prices are at their peak. Set up automatic investing »

* Dollar-cost averaging does not guarantee that your investments will make a profit, nor does it protect you against losses when stock or bond prices are falling. You should consider whether you would be willing to continue investing during a long downturn in the market, because dollar-cost averaging involves making continuous investments regardless of fluctuating price levels.

An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in such a fund.
