What is Qtrade Investor?

Qtrade Investor is Qtrade Financial Group’s award-winning online brokerage platform. It provides traders of all skill and experience levels the tools, research and customer support they need to reach their investment goals.

This is different from another Qtrade service, Qtrade Advisor, which involves a Great-West Life securities specialist providing you with advice on what securities you should consider buying or selling.

How does it work?

The first step is to reach out to your financial security advisor, who can provide you with more information about the Qtrade Investor service and the benefits of using this self-directed trading platform.

Next, you’ll need to visit the Qtrade Investor website, where you can complete an online application – doing so takes just 15 minutes. Once you’re set up, you can access vital resources built to help both new and experienced investors achieve investing success.

How will it benefit me?

Learn how to trade

Qtrade Investor has a wide variety of tools to help you learn about investing and the stock market. From customized reports to model portfolios and real-time quotes, it has what you need to get started and succeed.

Trade for less

Many competing online trading platforms generate revenue through high fees for every transaction. Qtrade Investor, in contrast, features low fees and competitive commissions, adding up to more value for investors like you.

Manage your accounts from any place at any time

With Qtrade Investor, you can monitor your portfolio using your mobile device of choice, such as your smartphone or tablet. That means you don’t have to be at home or the office to check on your investment performance, read breaking financial news, complete trades or access Qtrade’s highly responsive customer support service.

Online brokerage services are offered through Qtrade Investor, a division of Qtrade Securities Inc., a member of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund.

Qtrade Financial Group provides comprehensive brokerage and wealth management platforms, services and solutions to the public as well as the customers of hundreds of financial institutions across Canada. Since 1999, Qtrade has been dedicated to providing its financial institution partners with its market-leading brokerage platform and customer service.
