We have been fans of TD for many years based on our own and client’s experience. Also having an Canadian bank as a counter-party is a plus.
TD Ameritrade is also very competitive on the practice management side of things, adding value to the RIAs’ businesses to help them become even more successful.
Hats off to the TD folks for the work they are doing!
