TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - Virtual Brokers ("VB") is proud to announce its shared #1 ranking for Best Online Broker by The Globe and Mail's Annual Online Broker Ranking, this year. Since being ranked, VB has consistently placed among top brokers, achieving first place four of the past six years and second place the other two years. Once again, surpassing all major bank-owned brokerages and other independent brokers, they have remained on the top by excelling in all key classifying categories.
Rob Carrick's annual review, published on December 11th, 2016, evaluates online brokers through a range of criteria, including client service, cost, account reporting and maintenance, portfolio building tools, security and innovation.
This year, Virtual Brokers came out on top of the competition by focusing on advances that enhanced the client's experience such as implementing a new ticketing system for client inquiries, extending their customer service hours, introducing a live chat post login and a new client notification system. Additionally, among other features, their new sleek website design and new client education portal allows clients to navigate seamlessly through a wide-range of new research and educational tools.
"We have continued with our vision to distinguish ourselves beyond the assumed, 'most affordable broker', and to show our commitment to being an innovated, efficient, non-bank owned company that values its clients. This #1 ranking is testament to that belief and it reflects in our company growth." said BBS Securities Inc. and Virtual Brokers' Chief Operating Officer, Kambiz Vatan-Abadi.
