Innovation that empowers you to write your own future
Experience our latest Qtrade platform innovations.
Transfer funds faster
No need to worry about scanning and uploading a void cheque to add funds to your Qtrade account. Now you can deposit funds into your Qtrade account faster by connecting your financial institution to your Qtrade account to initiate an Electronic Fund Transfers (EFTs).
Real-time account opening
No more waiting for access to your trading account. We’ve streamlined to reduce our processing times so you can quickly open a new account and access it within minutes of completing your application.
Real-time account opening takes advantage of technology that automates key steps in the account-opening process, particularly client ID verification and authentication. Using our real-time identity verification process, you can open a wide variety of individual and joint accounts, including cash, registered retirement savings plans (RRSP) and tax-free savings accounts (TFSA) within minutes (provided the application is complete and in good order and submitted between 8:00 am to 8:30 pm ET).
Please note: To open a margin or option account will take a couple of business days due to additional credit and suitability requirements.
Real-time identity verification
Smile for your selfie to verify your identity. Using advanced photo capture and analysis, this new technology makes it easier to verify your identity when you open an account through your mobile device.

New ESG Score added to Portfolio Score ™ & Portfolio Simulator ™
Our suite of analytical tools just got upgraded. For clients who are interested in incorporating an ESG investing strategy into their portfolios, our Portfolio Score tool now has added functionality for portfolio analysis with an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) lens.
The ESG score shows how individual stocks or funds are contributing to your Portfolio’s overall ESG score, as well as a percentile ranking against the stock or fund’s peer group. A Higher ESG score indicates stocks or funds that are better at managing the risks and opportunities associated with ESG factors including pollution prevention, human rights, disclosure practices and more.
For investors looking to make adjustments to their portfolio, our Portfolio Simulator tool also includes the ESG score of your simulated portfolio and compared it to your current portfolio. Try it out today.
