VANCOUVER, April 29 /CNW/ - Credential Direct has unveiled a new website design to online trading
clients at credentialdirect.com. The refreshed site is more visually appealing, user friendly and
provides a better navigation experience to visitors.
"Traders still get the same great features and functionality they know
and love on our trading platform," said Lothar Fabian, Credential
Direct's Vice President. "We updated our website to better satisfy our
customers with larger fonts for easier reading, bold new colours, a
more spacious layout, and streamlined navigation to make finding what
you're looking for even easier."
Credential Direct has been ranked Canada's top online brokerage six
times since 2004. The award-winning website continues to centre on
creating an optimal user experience that emphasizes easy-to-navigate
pages for visitors to access investment tools and information.
"Our online brokerage site depicts what online trading should be--an
uncomplicated, seamless process," said Fabian. "Credential's fresh, new
design continues to demonstrate that, as well as showcase our drive to
remain an industry leader."
The redesigned website will also accommodate a growing influx of
individual investors that want to take advantage of the lowest active
trader threshold in the industry.
Two months ago, Credential Direct lowered the number of trades required
to qualify for low $9.95 commissions to 10 trades (down from 25). This
threshold offers substantial savings to individual investors and
represents one of the lowest commission structures in the Canadian
online brokerage market.
In addition to introducing clients to the updated website, Credential
Direct plans to unveil a mobile site later this summer. The mobile site
will allow users to quickly and easily access their trading accounts
from their favourite mobile devices.
