Accolades are always nice. They tell us we’re doing something well. So, if you will indulge us for a few minutes, we’d like to share with you some of the praise we’ve received from prestigious industry insiders this past year.
Foremost among the year’s highlights, Firstrade was selected by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance as one of the best online brokers of 2018 and was additionally honored as Best for ETF Investors and Best for Bond Investors. We were proud to share these honors with some of the largest and most well-known brokers in the industry including TD Ameritrade and Schwab.
For the fifth year in a row, Firstrade was also awarded 4.5 stars out of five for the website’s ease of use and also received 4.5 stars for its commissions and fees by StockBrokers.com 2018 Online Broker Review.
On August 23, 2018, right after our recognition from Kiplinger’s and Stockbrokers.com, Firstrade announced commission free trading of stocks, ETFs, options and mutual funds. Now that’s a big win for our customers.
According to Blain Reinkensmeyer, Head of Broker Research at StockBrokers.com, “Overall, Firstrade provides fantastic value with its offering of trader tools compared to its closest deep discount competitors. Investors looking for a low-cost, well balanced, all around easy-to-use broker will find Firstrade a great fit.”
Ok, ok, we know what you must be thinking— “they’re just showing off.” You’re right! But these are accomplishments we share with you—our loyal customer.
For us, these accolades are simply a reflection of the value and high-quality services you have come to expect from us. At Firstrade, you always trade for free and we’re proud to be providing you with the products, tools, technology, research and customer service you need to make sound investment decisions. It’s a commitment you’ll continue to be hearing about as we introduce new programs and services in 2019.
As always, we value your loyal patronage and welcome your comments and suggestions about making your Firstrade experience even better. Let us know how we’re doing and what you need from us to succeed.
