TORONTO, May 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Questrade (www.questrade.com) is announcing an exclusive partnership with Passiv (www.getpassiv.com), an innovative portfolio management software company that has a tool designed to make it easy for self-directed investors to rebalance their portfolios, thereby saving time and money for retirement. Passiv is a web app that helps implement a passive investing strategy for long term savings goals such as retirement, buying a home or saving for a child’s education. Passiv works by automatically calculating trades needed based on the investor’s target portfolio and available cash, so the investor can rebalance their portfolio with one click.

Get Passiv to go autopilot
Created for individuals who prefer to manage their own portfolio and are tired of losing money to high management fees, Passiv allows DIY customers to easily automate their portfolio management, receive cash deposit notifications, and calculate trades to follow a target portfolio. As an official Questrade partner, the tool is complimentary for Questrade customers. There is also an option to upgrade to the Elite package, to unlock more advanced investing options and save even more time by having Passiv execute the trades with one click.

“We’re excited to partner with Questrade because of their innovative culture and our shared value of helping Canadians,” explained Brendan Lee Young, CEO, Passiv. “We too are disillusioned with the status quo of investing -- paying high fees at traditional financial institutions with nothing to show for it. We’re in sync with lower fees, and Questrade also offers zero commissions on all ETF purchases, which is a great service to all who are investing for retirement.”

“Building wealth is not always simple but with a tool like Passiv, Questrade can make it much easier,” added Edward Kholodenko, president and CEO, Questrade. “The partnership with Passiv builds on our commitment to provide unique, innovative and cost-efficient online services to our customers, so Canadians can achieve their financial goals faster and ultimately, keep more of their money.”
