TORONTO, June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Questrade (www.questrade.com) -- Canada’s fastest-growing online brokerage -- is proud to announce it has been named Canada’s Best Online Broker 2019 in the seventh annual ranking of online brokerages published by MoneySense in partnership with Surviscor Inc., a leading research and business intelligence company. Cited as the most definitive ranking of online brokers in Canada, its in-depth analysis examines hundreds of measures, going beyond just price to look also at customer experience, product offerings and mobile capabilities. As the number one, Best Overall pick this year, Questrade scored significantly ahead of the twelve other firms evaluated in the report and was lauded as a company that “continues to invest and innovate” when many have not.

In addition to being named Best Overall, Questrade was named as the Best Online Broker for Customer Service, praised for offering the most options for its customers and potential customers and fastest response time, and Best Online Broker for Initial Impressions, noted for its digitized ease of opening an account and placing orders, and the company’s forward-thinking, digital prowess. Questrade was also among the top ranked brokers for User Experience, Fees and Commissions and Mobile Access

"Questrade topped MoneySense's ranking of Best Online Brokers in 2019, moving up from the overall second-place spot on our 2018 list. Our ranking of Questrade as the overall Best Online Broker in Canada is based in large part on the company's innovation in areas that make a material difference to customers. Questrade's platform allows investors to customize their online trading environment, and no other online broker makes it easier to reach a live representative for assistance if needed," said Sandra Martin, Editor-in-Chief of MoneySense. 

"The data really tells the story here. Questrade ranks high among competing Canadian brokerages for fees, user experience, mobile experience and initial impressions, and stands well above competitors when it comes to customer service—to the point that it was the only named winner in that category." 

"We’re honoured to be recognized as the best online brokerage in this year’s MoneySense review,” said Edward Kholodenko, president and CEO, Questrade. “It underscores our commitment to constantly innovate and develop new offerings that make a difference in the lives of Canadians. Throughout our twenty year history we’ve had one clear vision: to help Canadians achieve financial independence by providing them with the very best investment products, technology, and customer service at a great value, and help them become financially successful and secure.”
