E*TRADE Canada Offers Online Mutual Fund Information

E*TRADE Canada, an online investing services provider, introduced an unprecedented level of analytical information and tools on its Mutual Fund Centre.

The enhancements include information on more than 1,400 mutual funds, advanced analytical tools, and research, as well as Java applets called Interactive Charts and Dynamic Quotes, for tracking and charting stocks.

"These tools are a great equalizer in the fight to empower investors," said Colleen Moorehead, President of E*TRADE Canada. "They are the same types of tools sophisticated investors and advisors have used to improve stock selection. Technology is allowing independent investors to access these same analytics."

The E*TRADE Canada Mutual Fund Centre enables customers to buy and sell more than 700 mutual funds from widely known fund families, including Trimark, CI Funds, Fidelity, Mackenzie, Dynamic, and AGF. All funds are available with no loads or transaction fees.

The enhancements to the Mutual Fund Centre include:

  • An asset allocation model that helps investors determine the appropriate mix of assets in their portfolio
  • A new fund search feature with more than 35 criteria, including a combination of MERs, quartile performance, and standard deviation
  • Investment Strategies
  • A feature allowing investors to compare mutual funds directly

E*TRADE Canada is a service of VERSUS Brokerage Services Inc., one of the country's leading consumer online investing services.
