How FirstShare Works

Discover the Unique FirstShare Program for Investors

The FirstShare Program for DRIP Investors helps you get started investing in DRIPs. Since blue chip companies are not legally allowed to advertise, you'll need help getting started. That's where FirstShare comes in.

Most companies require that investors already own at least one share of its stock before allowing that investor to enroll in its DRIP plan. FirstShare saves you time and money by helping you acquire your first share of stock in the company of your choice and automatically enrolling you in that company's DRIP.

Our program is simple, effective and allows you, the investor, to take control of your own financial future and avoid excessive brokerage fees and commissions.
