About Questrade

We all have goals.
What are yours?

At Questrade, we have a clear vision: help Canadians achieve financial independence. After realizing there were no innovative options out there, we made the decision to take a different approach to investing. We threw away the outdated, restrictive models of wealth managers and big banks, and gave our clients some serious power. And we never looked back.

By focusing on value, convenience, and most importantly, our clients, we’ve raised the bar time and time again, and given every single one of our clients the respect they deserve and an equal opportunity to succeed. That’s something they can take to the bank.

Our CEO, Edward Kholodenko, was the recipient of the 2014 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Ontario services category award.

Also in 2014, Dalbar ranked Questrade #1 for direct brokerage investor statements and for direct and full-service brokerages (combined).

Since 2011, Questrade has been a proud recipient of the Best Managed Company award. No surprise, really.

For the past three years, we’ve also been ranked by Investor Economics as the fastest-growing online brokerage.

Brokerage: do-it-yourself trading

From the start, our goal was to offer traders a better way to invest. By offering our clients lightning-fast trade execution, reducing (or even eliminating) fees, as well as a constant stream of new products, services, and improvements to our clients’ user experience, we’ve changed the face of self-directed trading.

But the most important part of the story is we have never stopped innovating. Our brokerage clients deserve the best trading experience – and we strive to deliver.

Portfolio IQ: professionally managed portfolios

For most Canadians, the biggest roadblock to managing their wealth is, ironically, wealth managers. They have massive initial funding requirements, high fees, and they often leave clients in the dark when it comes to their portfolio’s performance.

That’s why we decided to take a different approach. We found the sweet spot by providing professional portfolio management with an online experience. Our professionally and actively managed portfolios with ultra-low management fees (along with zero trading fees) are available to all Canadians. Anybody can get started with as little as $1, and can get a customized portfolio starting at just $2,000.

Everyone has a goal. Now everyone has the opportunity to get there.

Portfolio IQTM is a service provided by Questrade Wealth Management Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Questrade Financial Group Inc.
