Full transparency in our fees

Nobody likes surprises—especially on their monthly statement. In the interest of being fully transparent and forthcoming with our pricing, we’re listing all the fees that you could possibly incur as a Questrade customer. The following fees are based on specific actions you take, so you may never see them—but if you do, rest assured we’re keeping them low.

Management expense ratio (MER) fees

Most managed investments, like mutual funds, charge a Management Expense Ratio. This fee covers the management of the investment itself. Typically, Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) MERs are much lower than MERs of a comparable mutual fund. The ETFs Questrade Portfolio IQ invests in all have their own MER, charged by the company managing the ETF and built right into the cost of the ETF. That means the fee will never show up on your account statement. We are telling you this because we don’t hide any fees, even if they’re not ours. The ETFs in our model portfolios have a low blended MER ranging from 0.22%-1.01%.

Administrative fees

By offering our wealth management service online, we reduce our overall expenses and pass those savings on to you in the form of lower fees.
