Disnat forms partnership agreement with Market Perspectives/StockSchool



    Thanks to this agreement, Disnat's clients can have free access
    to the renowned online educational program StockSchool Pro

    MONTREAL, March 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Disnat Online Brokerage "Disnat" is
pleased to announce that it has entered into a partnership agreement with
Market Perspectives Inc. (MPI), a Canadian firm which developed the renowned
online educational program, StockSchool Pro. Under this agreement, Disnat
acquired a significant stake in MPI and will now offer its new and current
clients (Disnat Direct) complimentary access to the StockSchool Pro program,
which has a unit value of $2,995.
    "We are very proud to announce this partnership with MPI. It will allow
us to give our clients access to a high-level online educational program.
Already, more than 1,000 Canadian investors have been able to take advantage
of the instruction available through StockSchool, a program developed by Tyler
Bollhorn, who is also founder of another Canadian company for self-directed
investors called Stockscores (www.stockscores.com). By partnering with MPI,
Disnat is enabling its clients to gain access to new, simple and powerful
analytical tools that they can then apply to their investment strategy," said
Mr. Frédéric Paquette, Disnat's Vice-President and General Manager.
    The StockSchool program was developed with the goal of better equipping
self-directed investors and helping them increase their knowledge of financial
markets. The program includes over sixty online video training sessions which
provide participants with the knowledge and tools that should enable them to
better identify winning investment opportunities.
    "StockSchool aims to give the investor the tools to better identify not
only the good investment opportunities in the market, but also the traps and
pitfalls to avoid. The program also offers training to improve risk management
and avoid common errors that can affect desired results," said Tyler Bollhorn,
creator of the StockSchool program.
    "With this partnership, Disnat has once again confirmed its leadership
role in Canada's online brokerage sector by demonstrating the importance we
put on investor training - an area in which Disnat stands out from the
competition. Disnat is expanding its presence in Ontario and Western Canada.
This partnership with MPI is another initiative that will strengthen Disnat's
visibility and market penetration across Canada," said Mr. Paquette.
