Wire transfer


A wire transfer is an electronic transfer of money between accounts, including accounts at different financial institutions. Wire transfers are fast and highly secure.

Contact your other financial institution and ask them to wire funds to E*TRADE Securities. You'll need to provide them with the information below.

You can complete and print out an easy Wire Transfer Form here.

If your financial institution is located outside the United States:

 

The receiving institution information (example):

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
420 Montgomery Street

For the benefit of: E*TRADE Securities
ABA Routing Number: 056073573

Your information:

Please note, your wire should ONLY be routed through the Wells Fargo WFBIUS6S SWIFT Code if your international bank does not have a corresponding US Bank.
