How Do I Completely Stop Motley Fool Wealth Management From Trading In My Account?

If you decide this program isn't right for you and you no longer want Motley Fool Wealth Management to manage your money for you, simply contact the Wealth Management team any time at 877-629-8542 or

Ending our management of your account is called detachment, and currently Interactive Brokers processes these requests once per week, on Fridays. Please note that it may take up to 10 days for your account to be disassociated from Motley Fool Wealth Management, and during this interval, Motley Fool Wealth Management may make trades in your account. Once your account has been detached, you will be given access to trade in that account.

Detachment does not affect the holdings in your account - the allocations will stay the same as they were, and all of your current positions will remain in your brokerage account at Interactive Brokers. We will simply disconnect our stewardship of the account.
