How do I open a MoneyLion Investment account?

The MoneyLion Managed Investment account is designed to simplify investing and put your hard-earned dollars to work, with zero management fees and no minimums. Enrolling is easy on the MoneyLion app or website. You'll open your investment account at the same time you open your MoneyLion Zero-Fee Checking account when you enroll in a MoneyLion Core membership.

In this FAQ, we'll walk you through enrolling on the app. Enrolling on the website is very similar, just log in and go to the Finances tab to begin. The requirements for successful enrollment are:
