What securities can I transfer?

M1 performs in-kind transfers, which allow you to bring over any supported securities you have at your current brokerage.  

M1 only supports securities that trade on major stock exchanges to ensure liquidity.  

If you initiate a transfer of a security not supported by M1, the received security will display outside your Pie. You may either keep this security outside your Pie or request to liquidate. 

M1 can only transfer full shares. Any fractional shares will need to be liquidated at your current brokerage.
