Questrade, Inc.: Canada’s largest independent online brokerage

Questrade is changing the face of online trading. We started as a small team envisioning how to give traders a better way to invest. Since then, we’ve raised the bar time and time again, evolving into a brokerage that is leading the way for the do-it-yourself investor. From lightning-fast trade execution to eliminating fees wherever possible, we believe in giving our clients the best online trading experience.

We have never stopped innovating –and don’t plan on slowing down any time soon.

Questrade Wealth Management Inc.

Questrade Wealth Management is changing the face of online investing services with two distinct options: Portfolio IQ™ and Questrade Smart ETFs™.

Portfolio IQ™ Portfolio IQ gives all Canadians access to professionally and actively managed portfolios. With ultra-low fees and no minimum funding, anyone can get a customized portfolio that evolves as you do. That’s right, wealth management isn’t just for the wealthy anymore.

Questrade Smart ETFs™ When Canadians asked for the building blocks of an intelligent portfolio, we answered with Questrade Smart ETFs. And they are exactly as their name suggests: smart. Whether equal weighted, Canadian hedged or actively managed, these ETFs go beyond basic index investing to limit risk and power growth. Did we mention unique? Our ETFs are designed for markets and strategies that have never before been listed in Canada.
