2018 Canadian Discount Brokerage Review & 2019 Preview


By Jean-Francois Sabourin, President & CEO, Jitneytrade

Jitneytrade is a direct access broker specializing in servicing active traders.

In June 2018, Jitneytrade was acquired by Canaccord Genuity Group Inc., a leading financial services firm with globally integrated operations in capital markets and wealth management. This development creates a unique opportunity to provide Jitneytrade’s existing clients with access to the global financial markets and the extensive resources available across Canaccord Genuity’s platform, while bringing Jitneytrade’s product offerings to a larger and more diverse range of investors.

2019 will be an exciting year for Jitneytrade. There will be a focus on expanding its current online brokerage for professional traders to include value-added features and services of a more traditional discount brokerage, to service the needs of a growing market of mainstream investors.

New 2019 Jitneytrade discount brokerage features will include:

  • A modernized user experience that will feature a rebranding and new website design.
  • Digital account openings featuring electronic signature.
  • Access to Canaccord Genuity proprietary research and new issues.
  • Improved access to foreign equity markets.
  • A new easy to read client dashboard.
  • No account minimums.
  • Competitive commission pricing and free ETF trading.
  • Young investors pricing.
  • Real time account funding.
  • New mobile applications.
  • Extended hours trading.
