Ranked among the top online brokers in Canada

More and more people have been opening accounts with online brokers. This doesn’t come as a surprise considering online brokerages can allow experienced do-it-yourself investors more control over their portfolio and access to wide range of investment options not available through our mutual funds.

At Educators Financial Group, we’re aware that many investors like to reserve a portion of their portfolio to trade directly in stocks, options, and fixed income securities. In order to be able to offer our clients all aspects of investing, we partnered with Qtrade Direct Investing™, Canada’s #1 online brokerage as ranked by The Globe and Mail.
