As more Canadians choose to manage their own investments online, Canada’s discount brokerage firms are becoming increasingly important hubs to accessing and managing investing opportunities. Recognizing the importance of this trend, the CSE has been working hard to ensure that investors have convenient, direct access to the over 270 (and growing) securities listed on the Exchange.
To that end, the CSE is proud to announce the addition of another Canadian online brokerage, TD Direct Investing, to the list of firms offering their clients real-time quotes and direct online trading access to CSE listed securities.
TD Direct Investing is a significant presence in the Canadian online brokerage marketplace. According to financial research firm Investor Economics, TD Direct Investing is one of Canada’s largest online brokerages by assets and trading. With the addition of TD Direct Investing’s WebBroker, online trading of CSE securities is now accessible to the vast majority of Canadian discount broker clients.
Connectivity to the CSE has been something requested by many TD clients over the years. As soon as the new functionality was enabled, social media users were quick to notice and share the good news.
CEO Richard Carleton said: “Ensuring Canadian investors have convenient access to trading CSE listed securities is a major priority for the CSE. We are very pleased that TD Direct Investing’s clients will now be able to quickly and conveniently access the growing number of securities listed on the CSE.”
