How Does Robinhood Make Money

Robinhood offers financial services and a vast array of investing goods and services, including stocks, American depositary receipts, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), cryptocurrency, and options.

Robinhood routes its users' orders through a market maker who makes the trades and compensates Robinhood for the business at a rate of a fraction of a cent per share.

Payments for Order Flow (Pfof)

Robinhood's premium service, known as Robinhood Gold, offers subscribers access to research reports, market data, larger instant deposits, and margin trading. This generates a separate revenue from subscription fees paid by Robinhood's premium user base.

Premium Robinhood Gold

Robinhood's customers can use margin lending to finance stock purchases with borrowed funds. Users borrow money from Robinhood Securities to invest on margin. Robinhood Gold includes basic margin trading.

Margin Trading

Cash deposited into the various banks that make up Robinhood's Cash Management network renders the company fees. It also benefits from using the Robinhood debit card by collecting interchange fees.

Cash Management Fees

In large part, Robinhood Securities may generate revenue by depositing customer cash into interest-bearing bank accounts if customers have money that is not invested and is not swept into their Cash Management network of banks.

Income From Cash

Users who wish to move funds from the Robinhood platform into the services of another broker pay a transfer fee of $75. Robinhood has several additional costs, including $5 for paper statements, $5 for paper confirms, and $20 for overnight check deliveries.

Service Charges

Robinhood is a secure platform since, first and foremost, the SEC regulates it. This means the site meets the same regulatory criteria as other popular brokers.
