Results indicate that 'so=called' platform improvements do not guarantee improved overall investor mobile experiences

The mobile-based platform scorCard review is the most comprehensive analysis in Canada, providing an impartial assessment of the phone-based customer experience at Canadian self-directed online brokerage institutions.

"2023 proved to be the busiest mobile platform enhancement year in quite some time, with wholesale platform changes for some firms and cosmetic-type changes at others" said Glenn LaCoste, President and CEO, Surviscor Group. "The jockeying of positioning from 2022 indicates that not every change resulted in an improved industry ranking. We congratulate Questrade for its ability to stave off the larger firms and maintain its top ranking through new app additions and feature enhancements to its multiple mobile platforms" added Mr. LaCoste. 

"As a financial services provider that prides itself on its leading-edge digital investment platforms, this is such outstanding recognition of the work our teams have done to meet the evolving needs of Canadians," said Edward Kholodenko, president and CEO, Questrade. "We continue to prioritize bringing best-in-class features, research tools, and investment resources to our mobile platforms to empower Canadians to quickly and easily make informed financial decisions and become much more financially successful and secure."

"With the recent addition of our new EdgeMobile app for active traders and vast improvements to our QuestMobile app, we have made a point to ensure our customers have access to unique, customizable, and seamless mobile experiences regardless of their trading preferences." said Scarlett Swain, Director, Investment Products, Questrade. "With features like real-time price quotes, intuitive user interfaces, and new resources like Seeking Alpha content live on our apps, we can't wait to reveal what's next on our product roadmap."'

The review explores a typical phone-based experience across six main categories, 28 sub-categories and 427 criteria points comprising 3,870 experience questions, including both the pre-login and secure login areas to establish a typical phone-based self-directed investor experience at each online brokerage firm.
